If you are selling a home or other property, you'll get the highest price in the shortest time if your home is in peak condition. Almost all sales contracts include the condition that the contract is contingent upon completion of a satisfactory inspection- known as the inspection contingency. Buyers will insist on a professional home inspection performed by an inspector they hire. If the buyers inspector finds a problem, it can cause the buyer to get cold feet and the deal can often fall through. At best, surprise problems uncovered by the buyers inspector will cause delays in closing, and usually you will have to pay for repairs at the last minute, or take a lower price on your home.
It's better to pay for your own inspection before putting your home on the market.
Having a pre-listing inspection done will make the whole sale process easier. Present any items as is and reflected in the purchase price. Otherwise, you can count on the buyers inspector finding them, at the worst possible time, causing delays and costing you more money. One of the key benefits of having the inspection done early, is that if there are any problems discovered that need to be repaired, you can have the repairs done on your own terms, on your own schedule. By having a pre-listing inspection from Jeff West Inspections, you can identify problems early. Then either correct them or present them as is, assuring that the first offer you accept can move quickly and smoothly to closing without delays or costly surprises. A Seller's inspection will virtually eliminate all the hassles and blown deals inspections cause when the Buyer brings in their inspector. It gives the leverage back to the Seller.
