Pre-Listing Home Inspections
A pre-listing inspection is a home inspection that is preformed before your Dayton area home goes on the market. A major benefit of a pre-listing inspection is the ability to help create a powerful marketing tool that can be used during the process of selling your home. A pre-listing inspection often reduces the potential for “11th Hour” negotiations where deals can fall apart. When a thorough pre-listing inspection is conducted by BC Warner Inspections, most potential buyers are often satisfied with the detail and waive their own third-party inspection.
What is included?
Clients will receive a complete web based inspection report including photos of the home along with a summary of the results. The report can be printed and included with other pertinent documents, maintenance records, manufacturer warranty information, appliance manuals, etc. for a complete document system presented in a professional binder.
How Will A Pre-listing Inspection Benefit you as a seller?
- Creates a unique selling advantage over all the other homes on the market.
- Home may sell faster!
- Home may sell for more money!
- Helps you to prepare your home for the real estate market.
- No more buyers walking away because there may be a problem with the home.
- Buyers may be encouraged to waive or forego their inspection contingencies.
- No more negotiations or 11th-hour re-negotiations based on the other inspectors findings.
- No more buyers walking away because they don’t have enough time for an inspection.
- May reduce the inconvenience to you in order to accommodate the buyers inspector and schedule.
- You get to choose the inspector based on reputation and credentials (no more inexperienced inspectors making mountains out of molehills).
- You schedule the inspection to your convenience.
- You resolve any differences of opinion about the home before it goes on the market.
- All homes have room for improvement. Disclosing the condition of the home allows you to reflect the condition in the listing price, rather than have to negotiate again later when issues are discovered.
- You fix any conditions identified (if you choose to) or simply reflect it in the purchase price. This takes it off the table as a negotiating point against you.
- Permits you to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
- Removes potentially over-inflated, buyer procured estimates from any future negotiations.
- Saves you of having to hurriedly procure repair estimates or schedule repairs in order to save a deal.
- Your deals are less likely to fall apart the way they often do when buyer’s inspections unexpectedly reveal problems at the last minute.
- Our reports can help provide full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
