A pre-inspection is a home inspection arranged for by the seller before listing the house for sale.
The pre-inspection allows the seller to fix-up issues that would come up in the buyer’s inspection at closing, putting them in a position of strength during negotiations.
Pre-listing inspections can take away the stressful element of surprise for the homeowner. It also helps prevent offer renegotiation’s, extensive buyer repair requests, and the possibility of buyers walking away while already in contract.
Common home repairs can take weeks to months to book and complete. A pre-listing home inspection gives you time to compare contractors and tackle repairs without the pressure of a buyer threatening to walk away from the sale.
With a pre-listing home inspection, you beat the buyer to the punch by completing (or at least acknowledging) these repairs ahead of time.
