Planning to put your home on the market? Before you put up that “For Sale” sign on the front lawn, get a pre-listing inspection with Valley Building Inspections. Yes, it’s an added step in an already-complicated process, but it’s a great way to go into the selling process with confidence, knowing your house is in great shape. Don’t let a good sale fall through because of something that could have been caught in a pre-listing inspection. 

4 Reasons to Schedule a Pre-listing Inspection 

1. You can advertise the house as “recently inspected”.

By showing potential buyers that you already had the house inspected, you’ll help boost their confidence in the condition of the property. It provides an extra layer of assurance for both buyer and seller.

2. You’ll avoid potential delays in the final sale of the home.

With a pre-listing inspection, you’ll have time to address and fix any issues that are discovered by the buyer inspection. This way, when the right offer comes through, the rest of the selling process will move forward more easily because the pre-listing inspection should reduce the number of problematic findings on the buyer inspection. 

3. You’ll be able to take care of fixes on your schedule. 

In general, home sellers tend to make poor decisions under pressure – especially when they have a buyer under contract and a forced deadline. It can also be difficult to schedule contractors on short notice, not to mention the stress on your budget as you try to fix everything at once. Without the stress of a deadline and demands of a buyer, you’ll be able to make more informed decisions about needed repairs. 

4. You’ll sell for a higher price.

Studies show that pre-inspected homes sell at higher prices. What better reason to schedule a pre-listing inspection with VBI today?
