What is a seller inspection?
A Sellers Inspection is a complete Home Inspection. Seller inspections (sometimes referred to as pre-listing inspections) are arranged and paid for by the seller of a home. The best time to arrange for your seller inspection is before your home goes on the market. The home inspector works for you, and generates a report for you, the seller. The report then can be shared with potential buyers.
Why get a seller inspection?
Seller inspections are becoming more popular because they virtually eliminate all the pitfalls and hassles associated with waiting to do the home inspection until a buyer is found. The seller inspection puts the power of selling in the hands of the seller.
Once your seller inspection is completed if repairs are needed you can shop and schedule the repairs on your time with the contractor of your choice. You can also present them as is, in good faith, providing full disclosure. This is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
The advantages of a seller’s inspection
- You can choose a certified, licensed and insured inspector rather than depend on the buyer’s choice of inspector.
- You can schedule the inspections at your convenience.
- You will be aware of any items of immediate concern, such as roof leak or electrical defects.
- Your sellers inspection reveals problems ahead of time, which:
~ Permits you to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report for potential buyers
~ Removes over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.
- You can review and discuss the report with the inspector before it is presented to any potential buyers.
- 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.
