Pre Listing Consultations
Fast becoming a popular inexpensive Sellers option before listing a home.
Most real estate sales process's have an inspection contingency. The Buyers will Hire a professional home inspection company to perform an inspection on the property. If the buyer’s home inspector finds deficiencies within the home, it can cause the buyer to think twice and the deal can possibly fall through. At best, surprise issues discovered by the buyer’s inspection will delay the closing process, and usually the seller will either pay for costly last minute repairs, accept a lower price, or provide credits on the transaction.
We recommend the sellers have a “Pre-Listing” inspection consultation performed "Before" your home is listed and here is why - Typically within 5 days of a contract being placed on your home, a buyer will hire a home inspector to perform an inspection of your property. In most cases (unless it is sold “as-is”) you will presented with a ” BINSR – Buyer’s Inspection Notice and Seller’s Response”
Unfortunately, in our society today, home inspectors have become targets. As a result, many home inspectors tend to point out just about anything as “suspect” or provide comments such as: “recommend further Evaluation or repair by qualified Professional.”
