As you probably already know, getting a home inspection done is a must when making an offer on a particular property.
But what you may not realize is that a home inspection is a good first step when thinking about selling your home, too. Why? Because it can detect previously unknown problems that you may want to address before putting your property on the market.
For example, say an inspection reveals that there is a small crack in the foundation. Getting this fixed in advance will help prevent the “buyer turnoff” that might occur should the buyer discover this issue first.
Worse yet, the buyer may use that as a negotiation tactic, and potentially look to shave some money off the list price – more than it may even cost for the repair itself.
When possible, you also never want to leave anything to discovery for the buyer. If they find something, they’ll start to think more issues may be hiding under the radar.
A certificate from a qualified home inspector will impress potential buyers, and put their concerns at ease, too.
