Why Get a Home Preinspected

February 27th, 2011 · No Comments

There are many reasons to get a home preinspected.  Preinspected home sell quicker and for more money than home that aren’t preinspected.  The following are a list of advantages to having a preinspection.


· The seller can schedule the inspections at the seller’s convenience.

· It might alert the seller to any items of immediate concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.

· The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer’s inspection.

· The seller can have the inspector correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is generated.

· The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.

· The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or have been corrected.

· A seller inspection reveals problems ahead of time, which:

· might make the home show better.

· gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.

· permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.

· removes over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.


· The report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.

· The report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential buyers.

· A seller inspection permits a clean home inspection report to be used as a marketing tool.

· A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.

· The report might relieve a prospective buyer’s unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.

· A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.

· The report might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.

· The deal is less likely to fall apart, the way they often do, when a buyer’s inspection unexpectedly reveals a last-minute problem.
