Are you selling a home? Eventually, your buyers are going to want to conduct an inspection, so you may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:
- The seller can choose a Licensed Home Inspector rather than be at the mercy of the buyer's choice of inspector.
- The seller can schedule the inspections at the seller's convenience.
- It might alert the seller of any items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
- The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's inspection.
- The seller can have the inspector correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is generated.
- The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
- The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.
