Seller's Pre-Listing Home Inspection


There are many advantages to a Thumbs Up Real Estate Inspection Pre listing Inspection:


  • Getting a home inspection completed before the home is put on the market reduces the number of surprises for both the seller and buyer which can decrease the likelihood of the deal falling apart.
  • The home may attract more buyers if repairs are done prior to listing.
  • Gives potential buyers more peace-of-mind knowing a third-party inspection has already been completed on the property, reducing the buyer’s anxiety that any disclosures or information have been withheld.
  • It gives you more time and options to get repairs completed, and you get to choose who does the repairs, which could save you thousands of dollars. Once you go into contract, you are required to use a licensed contractor on most repairs.
  • The seller is in a stronger position for negotiations by having a Pre-Listing inspection performed as they can inform buyers of what they are willing (and not willing) to repair before they enter into contract.

  • The seller can schedule the inspections at the seller's convenience
  • It might alert the seller to any items of immediate concern, such as pests or active termite infestation.
  • 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.
  • Permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
  • Removes the possibility of over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.
  • A seller inspection permits a clean home inspection report to be used as a marketing tool.
  • A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
  • The report might relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.
  • Agents are alerted to any immediate safety issues found, before other agents and potential buyers tour the home.
  • Seller inspections eliminate "buyer's remorse" that sometimes occurs just after an inspection.
