A home inspection is valuable for sellers to help identify any potential problems that may need tending to. If you intend to put your house on the market, a home inspection will identify items that would be called out on a buyer's inspection, which allows to you to make prior repairs and modifications, putting your house in a more sellable position.
Having a home inspection performed ahead of time helps the seller in many other ways including:
- It helps you price your home realistically.
- It permits you to make prior repairs and modifications.
- There is no delay in obtaining the Use and Occupancy permit.
- You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if qualified.
- It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
- It may alert you of items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
- It may relieve prospect's concerns and suspicions.
- It may reduce your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.
You should always make copies of the inspection report along with receipts for any repairs available to potential buyers.
