Submitted by SteveWillis on Thu, 08/18/2016 - 15:08

If you’re thinking about selling your home in Colorado Springs, have you considered a pre-listing home inspection? Many sellers miss out on the potential benefits of a pre-listing inspection because they assume homebuyers are primarily the ones responsible for home inspections.

 

Scheduling a visit from a professional Colorado Springs home inspector before your property goes on the market will help you identify and address problems that could potentially derail a transaction down the road.

 

Here’s more on what you need to know about pre-listing inspections and the potential benefits they offer.

 

How Do Pre-Listing Inspections Work?

 

Typically, the inspection will take place before the home is actually put on the market. It’s best to identify and understand all problems upfront so that the seller can inform any potential buyers before negotiations begin or offers are made.

 

After the inspection is complete, Willis Home Inspection provides the seller with a report that can easily be turned into a quick and valuable reference guide for potential buyers. The seller and their Colorado Springs real estate agent have the opportunity to review and discuss the report to make adjustments to list price or marketing strategy.

 

Pre-Listing Home Inspection Benefits

 

Ignoring problems until they are flagged by a buyer-initiated inspection in the middle of a transaction only wastes both parties’ valuable time. It could easily earn some bad will from a buyer and unnecessarily squash a sale that could have otherwise gone through successfully.

 

The main benefits of getting your home inspected before it goes on the market include:

 

  • Easier to set a realistic list price that can result in a quick, profitable transaction

  • More convenient to shop around for the most reliable and affordable repair professionals without a buyer’s deadline looming over your head

  • Better marketing -- make your home listing more enticing by including documented proof of the true condition of your home.

 

As you can see, the benefits provide value that far outweighs the cost of an inspection.
