Hitting The Market? It’s Time To Get Working!

With the real estate market getting as competitive as it can, the more prepared you are, the more likely it is for your house to sell.

What is pre-listing Home inspection?

Before you get your house on the real estate map, it’s highly important that you go for a pre-listing home inspection. Pre-listing inspection is not a new concept, but is becoming increasingly common with the slow rate in real estate rates. A Pre-home inspection gives you a firsthand knowledge about the sales potential of your house, before you can put up your price tag. It’s also a great way for you to know if you want to invest in any new improvements or want to adjust the sales price to reflect the estimated costs on repairs and replacements. Either way, a prelisting home inspection is a great idea to avoid any unexpected circumstances down the line.

Meet the inspector two months before listing.

Most home buyers go ahead and start with repairs and replacements that they find important and then call for inspection only to know that they need to redo the entire stuff. Why not call the inspector two months before the entire repair to know what’s of utmost importance and what’s not?

A home inspector will give you an early-stage advice on which fixture to get replaced and what can wait for some time. He can also give some guidance on the aesthetic aspect of the house, and what may please the home-lookers. Suggestions right from the paint in every room to the lights, kitchen equipments and the entire look of your house can be given a touch of professionalism before you can put it up for sale.

A pre-inspection is the best way to know and increase the value of your house, before you can list you price in the market.
