Why Pre-List Home Inspections Make Sense

Advantages to the Seller:
  • The seller can choose a certified home inspector rather than be at the mercy of the buyer's choice of inspector.
  • The seller can schedule the home inspection at the seller's convenience.
  • It might alert the seller to any items of immediate concern, such as radon gas, mold or active termite infestation.
  • The seller can assist the home inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's inspection.
  • The seller can have the home inspector correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is generated.
  • The inspection report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
  • The inspection report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.

A seller pre list 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 home inspection report.
  • Removes over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.
  • The inspection report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before real estate agents and visitors tour the home.
  • The inspection report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential home buyers.
  • A seller pre list inspection report can be used as a marketing tool.
  • A seller pre list inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
  • The inspection report might relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.
  • A seller pre list inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
  • The inspection 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 home inspection unexpectedly reveals a last-minute problem.
  • The inspection report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
