Prelisting Inspection
Life occasionally throws road blocks in our way. We can limit those obstacles by taking precautionary measures. When you're selling your home, consider investing in a prelisting inspection to avoid costly issues in the future and delaying the home selling process.

Haring Realty has been helping people sell their homes since 1983. Our experienced agents have shared their insights on the benefits of a prelisting inspection.Ā 

  • Nicely Wrapped Package
    When you make a large purchase, you want to be sure of what you're getting, to reassure your money is well spent. You're more likely to buy the product that comes with a warranty or with a list of repairs and improvements. So when a buyer is searching for a home, it's important to show them what yours has to offer. They know what they're getting for their investment, and it might be the tipping point if they're torn between a couple of properties.

  • Seller Control
    In many cases, when it comes to closing, sellers often feel like they're at the mercy of the buyer, especially when there are issues revealed during the buyer's inspection. As the seller, you just want the sale to go through, so you end up making last minute concessions if those problems arise. But with a pre-listing inspection, you have the upper hand. There aren't going to be any huge surprises, which helps you stand firm on your price.

  • Highlights Assets
    Presenting a preinspection report stating when and what home improvements have been made, will highlight your home's assets. Things like new plumbing, electrical upgrades and new siding or roof, are major selling points to buyers not wanting to make any big, initial repairs.

  • Have it Fixed
    If a preinspection reveals an issue, you then have time to decide whether you want to invest in having it repaired or replaced before your home hits the market. You can shop around for the best price, instead of sitting at the negotiation table and having the buyer find a more expensive fix. Again, you are in control. In certain cases, it's also wise to consider a roof inspection and even pest inspection before you list.

  • When it's Not a Good Idea
    If your home is a fixer-upper, it may not be necessary to get the prelisting inspection. Usually in those cases, buyers are aware of the issues, so no need to spend any extra pointing out the obvious.
