Save Money, Maximize Your Return

While home inspections are typically used by home buyers, you — as the seller — also have a lot riding on this transaction. Renegotiations after an inspection may result in you needing to make repairs, a reduction in the price, or if more serious issues are discovered, revocation of the offer from the buyer. Put yourself in a stronger position for negotiations, and maximize your sale price, by having your home inspected before listing it on the market. If you choose to make repairs before listing, you’ll have plenty of time. Fix issues at your leisure, with no looming deadlines.

Avoid Surprises, Sell with Confidence

Go into negotiations with more control and ensure a quicker, smoother transaction. Findings from a buyer’s inspection can catch you off guard, just as it can the buyer. If that happens, then you’ll be under pressure to correct the problem quickly or lower the price. If a major problem is discovered, or negotiations break down, then the transaction is in jeopardy. And when a deal falls through, no one wins.

Preparing for the Inspection

As the seller, there a few things you can do to prepare for the inspection. Being prepared will help the inspection go smoothly and increase your home’s appeal to potential buyers.

Cleanup

This may be stating the obvious, but it’s imperative that your house is as clean as possible. Not only does this increase your home’s appeal, but it also helps the inspector by making it easier to move around and access various areas of interest.

Utilities are Connected

Utilities need to be connected so the inspector can test things like water flow, electrical outlets, water heaters, furnace, air conditioning, and so on. Without the utilities connected, the home inspector will have no choice but to either reschedule or suggest inspection by a specialist.

Appliances are Connected and Working

Appliances that are not connected to water, power, oil, or gas cannot be turned on by the home inspector. All appliances should be working properly, and abandoned appliances should be removed.

Brush and Other Exterior Obstructions

In the Winter, try to provide a path around your house. In the Summer, clear away any overgrowth or dead branches that come into contact with the home.

House Number

This may seem silly, but make sure the house number is visible from the street. People are going to need to check out the house, so you’ll want to make sure they can find it without any trouble.
