The Home Inspection is Not Only for Homebuyers


P­­re-inspections Could Be A Home Seller Differentiator


Local market reports from the #relentless sales professionals of Century 21 Real Estate nationally indicate that supply in some local markets is moving toward demand equilibrium. As such, DOM (days on market) is increasing, and sellers looking for a competitive edge could consider a pre-inspection.


Sellers who hire a pre-home inspection can set themselves apart from the competition in many ways, including:


  • Enhances curb appeal: New shingles on the roof, a newly-tarred driveway and a brand-new front door, to name a few, could help propel you and your home in a more positive light, and encourage buyers to view your property.
  • Eliminates potential surprises: If you know there’s a leak in your showerhead, windows that don’t open and close properly or the gutter system is not up to code, you can get ahead and have those items fixed before the home you get to a closing table. Plus, it shows confidence in the home, and its structural foundation and operating condition to the buyer.
  • Helps get to close: Even the smallest things could interfere with a successful closing. By having repairs completed or known in advance by the buyer, problems at closing, if there are any, typically are minor concerns easily rectified during that time.


Of course, sellers must realize that they: 1) will pay for their own inspection, 2) must feel comfortable opening their home to buyer scrutiny and 3) understand that the buyer will still likely have their own home inspector.
