As a seller, you’ve responsibly prepared your home as much as you could in hopes of achieving the ultimate reward: an ideal return investment. Even with all of your efforts, there is still bound to be issues, as no home is in perfect tip-top condition. This is one of the reasons why a buyer is likely to request a home inspection.
You have the power to make a home inspection feel less like a nerve-wracking process of scrutiny by initiating the inspection yourself.
Initiating an inspection yourself will turn the entire process into an experience that is beneficial to both you and the home buyer because you will know exactly what to expect and how to deal with issues as they arise. For instance, you will know how to create paths of easy access for the inspector, and you will be able to better deal with the home maintenance issues that have been plaguing you because you will know the root causes.
From a selling advantage standpoint, conducting a home inspection before putting your home on the market will not only bring you peace of mind, but it will project the confidence you have in the property you’ve spent years cultivating. Buyers will detect this confidence in your asking price, and they may be less likely to go back and forth in negotiation if they are able to get an accurate read on your property. The more you know about your home’s kinks, quirks, and bruises, the more capable you will be at speaking about them openly and intelligently with prospective buyers, who will learn to value you as a dependable source.
A home inspection is a show of good faith in the eyes of potential buyers. They will perceive a confident home owner who is happy to answer the questions they may have, and, hopefully, the return investment you receive will be a reflection of these feelings.
