A Pre- Sale Inspection will help shorten the sale of a home and make the process smoother.

The inspection allows the seller to  repair issues related to the property that could make the home sale lag, and  lead to problems in the selling process.

The pre-sale inspection takes about 3 hours average. and costs from $200-$700.00 .   It  includes noting the condition of the main systems such as the plumbing, heating, and air conditioning.  The main appliances are also checked such as the garbage disposal, and dishwasher.   The inspector will examine the structural foundation, roof, basement and attic.  Also the exterior  like the porch, steps, and walkways are included.  If  there is a structural  defect or a an appliance or system that is inoperable it will be noted on the report with photos .  The inspector can explain to the seller how to repair an issue,  however he/she  may recommend that the seller contact a professional who specializes in a specific trade.

 

The Seller may decide not to repair every issue found in the inspection.  They can  choose to  disclose the defects to the buyers and point out that the asking price has been adjusted to reflect the cost of repairs.  This usually shortens  the negotiation time.    Furthermore, the  inspection will satisfy full disclosure real estate laws  by focusing on the condition of the property, and  is  less likely to miss a defect which they could be held liable.

 

In summary, an inspection will speed up the sale, and protect the seller from being liable, resulting in the likelihood of a sale.
