Selling a Home:
My New Home Inspection will provide clients with a pre-listing consultation. The consultation will identify any repairs that need to be addressed prior to listing. A pre-listing consultation provides the home owner with confidence and knowledge for a smoother transition.
Why Should Sellers Consider a Pre-listing Consultation From My New Home Inspection?
Eventually your buyers are going to conduct a home inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:
- The seller can choose a certified InterNACHI inspector rather than be at the mercy of the buyer’s choice of inspector.
- The seller can schedule the consultation at the seller’s convenience.
- It might alert the seller of any items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
- The seller can assist the inspector during the consultation, something normally not done during a buyer’s inspection.
- The consultation can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
- The consultation can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or have been corrected.
My New Home Inspection consultations reveal problems ahead of time which:
- Might make the home show better.
gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.
permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
removes over-inflated buyer procured estimates from the negotiation table.
- The consultation might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.
- The consultation provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential buyers.
- A seller consultation is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
- A seller consultation lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
- The consultation might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
- The deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer’s inspection unexpectedly reveals a problem, last minute.
- The consultation provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
