Finding the right buyers for your home and getting their signatures on the contract is only one of the moving parts in a real estate buying transaction.
At the very least buyers will request a general home and pest inspection, but they are most likely to ask for electrical, roof, heating/cooling inspections as well. Should the inspections turn up problems, regardless how minor, they can derail the deal.
There is a solution that is often overlooked – the pre-emptive inspection. Before you put your home on the market hire a professional to conduct a thorough inspection. If potential issues are identified, you now have the time to make repairs without jeopardizing or delaying the sale.
The primary advantage to this strategy is to eliminate renegotiation of the purchase price which can occur if the inspection is initiated by the buyer and problems are uncovered.
