Surprises are welcome at birthday parties and Christmas but, when it comes to putting your house on the market, you don’t want any unexpected results from the home inspection. Make sure your property is in great shape before listing it. With a pre-listing inspection from TLC Home Inspections, LLC, you’ll have peace of mind and get top dollar for your home.
Remove potential for surprise
Don’t let a deal fall through because an unexpected issue popped up. When you are aware of what you are selling, it allows you to evaluate your price point and any necessary repairs to get to your desired target price point. You can either price to sell, or make the repairs to sell at a premium.
Find time and budget space to schedule contractors
Without the stress of a deadline and demands of a buyer, you’ll be able to make more informed decisions about repairs. In general, home sellers tend to make poor decisions under pressure – especially when they have a buyer under contract and a deadline of the option period. It can also be difficult to schedule contractors on short notice during the option period, not to mention the stress on your budget as you try to fix everything at once.
Handy with a hammer? Do some DIY fixes
Minor repairs, like fixing a light fixture or tightening a loose drain line, can be made without the need of a licensed professional. Once the property is under contract and an amendment has been made, the contract requires a licensed professional to do the repairs needed. This can be costly for minor repairs that you may have been capable of doing yourself. But, with a pre-listing inspection, you can undertake some of this work yourself if you are capable.
With a pre-listing inspection, you’re in the driver’s seat
Because buyers will already have an idea of the property’s condition, you can put buyers at ease and have fewer headache-inducing negotiations. And you’ll be confident in knowing your home is in great condition and ready for the right offer to come along.
