WHAT IS A PRE-LISTING INSPECTION?
A pre-listing inspection is generally a thorough inspection of your house by a professional to help identify any maintenance or repair issues before you list your house for sale. Homeowners typically wait until a potential customer wants to buy their home, and then the prospective buyer pays for the home inspection. When that is done, you end up having to negotiate repairs & run the risk of having the buyer change their mind about the sale.
HOW MUCH DOES A PRE LISTING INSPECTION COST?
How much is a pre-listing inspection? It depends on:
- The size of the home
- The age of the home
- The condition of the home
- The location of the home
WHAT IS A PRE-LISTING WALK & TALK?
What if a pre-listing inspection is a bit out of your budget? In that case, Home Pro Inspections offers a unique option: the Pre-Listing Walk & Talk. It’s not an inspection, but rather a consultation. The seller appoints a qualified ASHI Certified Home Inspector to discuss any issues before listing the home on the market. With this option, the seller absorbs any deficiencies or deferred maintenance that requires correction before the home goes on the market & then, they can discover how to handle them accordingly.
The significant difference between the Pre-Listing Walk & Talk & a typical home inspection is that there is no written report. The seller is encouraged to make their own notes & determine what will be updated before settling on a list value with their realtor. In this way, they can appropriately allocate their resources, anticipate any buyer’s concessions & understand the true worth of the home accordingly.
PRE-LISTING INSPECTION VS BUYER INSPECTION
What’s the difference between a pre-listing inspection & a buyer inspection? The only notable difference is (who pays for it). A pre-listing assessment is paid for by the seller & a buyer pays for a buyer inspection. However, doing a pre-emptive pre-listing inspection can save the home seller a great deal of hassle & even money because it prevents surprises & post-inspection negotiations.
