Selling A Home
its been a great run…
Selling a home can be a bitter sweet moment, you have many memories you will be leaving behind, yet new opportunities ahead of you. Maybe you need more space, or its time to downsize, either way you want to make sure you get the most out of your investment with minimal stress. Having a Home Inspection performed before you list it for sale, commonly called a Pre-Listing Inspection, will help you understand how your home compares in the market and how to prepare and price it accordingly.
The Pre-Listing Inspection:
See the home from the buyers point of view
No surprise issues during negotiations'
Transparency minimizes conflict
Increased likelihood of a successful closing
Understanding the items that may be brought up by a buyers inspection well prepare you for the potential negotiating responses you may face or give you time to correct issues on your terms effectively removing them from the negotiating process.
Transparency is often the number one method of preventing combative negotiating which can result in stress and cancelled contracts. Unless you thrive and like the uncertainty of negotiations, having your home inspected before you list it for sale along with developing a solid strategy with your realtor may prevent leaving money on the table and a concluding successful negotiation.
