Are you looking forward to selling your home? A property listing inspection should be on your bucket list before placing your home on the market. It can be stressful but it will help you solve the issues your home may have before the buyer does their own inspection.
So, what is a home inspection?
A home inspection is a visual observation of the home to assess the health, safety, and major mechanical issues that may be present in the process of closing a home sale. It is usually done by the buyer before making the purchase.
A seller can also perform a home inspection and in that case, it is called a property listing inspection. Usually, the seller does this before listing the home so that they can fix what needs fixing beforehand.
What happens during a home inspection?
The process in most cases will take at least 3-4 hours. Inspectors tend to stress on health and safety concerns. They go through the structural components of the home in both interior and exterior.
They also check the functionality of your utilities and appliances, while noting down any broken parts that need repair and other issues that may be of hazardous nature.
The inspector will not concern the inspection with anything aesthetic unless it may accrue a larger problem. For example, the inspector will most likely note a ceiling stain that may be as a result of water damage.
As a seller, when you carry out a property listing inspection, you’re likely to accrue the following benefits;
- Prior repairs of potential problems
- Accurate pricing is much easier
- Helps minimize stress
- You are less likely to do a negotiation with the buyer
- The buyer’s confidence will be boosted somehow
