It sure does making a home sell easier when there is a pre-inspection.
In today's economy, buyers have more homes to choose from than ever before. Why should they stop and look at yours? What is different about your home? To catch the buyers attention, you need to offer an eye catcher such as "This home is inspected...no surprises!" Eliminate some natural fears of the buyer right away by letting them know that this home in generally good shape or better. When buyers are surfing the web, they can pass over your listing fast. You need an eye popper link at your web listing that says Click here to see the home inspection Just because you may think your home is in good shape does not separate it from the 100's of others that you may be competing with for the buyers attention. If you were an agent and were looking on behalf of your buyers for possible homes to show them, would you be attracted to a home that may sell easier because you know the home's condition has already been inspected? If the price is right, and the financing is favorable, then the hardest part remaining (the inspection) is already passed! Agents work on commission and many times the inspection is the problem. With a sellers inspection link at your listing, the buyer's agent can see quickly that this home is alot more attractive than the other homes on the street and is likely to go to closing if the price can be worked out!
How easy is selling a house with a Seller's Inspection?
If a seller's inspection is performed and significant damage or defects are found. there will be disappointment, but no hysteria or regret. No deal about to go sour. The agent will discuss the problems with the Seller and will determine if this listing is "AS IS" with full disclosure, or if any repairs need correcting to expedite the sale. The Seller then corrects any problem areas, and calls for a reinspection of the home. The home inspector returns a clean report. Next, a Buyer enters a contract agreement with the Seller. The Buyer will choose to trust the home inspection or will have another. No major problems should be found by the second inspection. The deal coasts downhill to closing. Everyone is happy.
