Sell faster and easier
The last thing you want after accepting an offer is a slew of unanticipated repairs.
Here’s how a pre-listing inspection can prevent surprises so we can deliver you the smoothest possible closing. You may be asking, “Doesn’t the inspection only happen after the house is in contract?”
Technically speaking, the inspection doesn’t have to happen until the house is in contract. But a pre-listing inspection will help you prepare your home so that the sale can close sooner and more smoothly.
That’s because, as soon we have a buyer in contract, they and their agent will hire a home inspector for a detailed evaluation of your home. If the inspection reports reveal defects, known or unknown, the buyer may feel they have another chance to negotiate.
By having one of our trusted home inspectors complete an inspection prior to listing, you gain peace of mind that surprises won’t show up during the buyer’s inspection. Conducting a professional inspection before listing also gives you the opportunity to either make repairs the buyer is likely to require or to disclose them in the listing and price accordingly.
Before listing your home, the pre-listing inspection lets you and our team:
- Discuss the reports and recommendations for repairs that will need to be addressed.
- Arrange for maintenance that would make your property more marketable.
- Connect with our trusted professional referrals, with whom we enjoy long-standing relationships. These professionals may include cleaners, contractors, plumbers, electricians, painters, landscapers, and more. As part of our concierge services, we will make arrangements for these services upon your request.
- Before your home is listed, we will Open Escrow and order a title report ensuring a clean title prior to listing and showings.
