If you’re getting ready to sell your home, you might want to consider a pre-listing home inspection before you list. The main advantages of having one are:

  • You’ll find out the actual condition of your home
  • It will make pricing the property easier
  • You can make necessary repairs ahead of time before you list
  • It puts everyone at ease (you, the buyer, and both agents)
A pre-listing inspection could cost up to $600.
It’s not always in your best interest to have one, though. The disadvantages of a pre-listing inspection include:

  • The cost—it could be anywhere from $400 to $600
  • You must disclose any problems that you uncover and any repairs you make
  • The home will end up being inspected twice—once before it’s listed, and once after a buyer agrees to buy it.

If you have any questions about pre-listing inspections or anything else related to real estate, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
