PRE-SALE INSPECTIONS
Avoid renegotiations, delays and lost sales

One of the most frustrating aspects of selling a house is when a problem turns up on the physical inspection. Depending on the severity of the problem, it can lead to a new round of negotiations, delay your escrow, or even ruin your sale. List your house knowing that there won't be any surprises. And if you are buying another house on contingency, having your house pre-inspected gives you more negotiating power. The seller of the house you want to buy will feel better knowing your house will have a clean inspection, and shouldn't delay your purchase.

Regardless of how a home looks on the outside, there may be underlying issues that need to be identified. A home inspection and home inspection reports or home inspection list can protect the seller. Problems may develop over time which can go un-noticed by even the most meticulous homeowner. Unfortunately these issues can lead to delays, unhappy buyers or even lawsuits after the sale.
