Once you are under contract, buyers scheduling a home inspection is typically the first vital part of the sales transaction process. As the seller, it is important to be prepared for this to ensure the process goes smoothly and so that you feel confident to minimize any issues that may potentially arise concerning the condition of your home.
The basic home inspection ensures that your home’s foundation, roof, walls, windows, ceilings, heating and electrical and plumbing systems, and entryways are up to certain standards. We will discuss this checklist before listing your home so you will have the opportunity to do whatever you decide might be in your best interest to do prior to offering your home for sale.
Spending the time and money to take care of miscellaneous and/or major items will undoubtedly help you to enter into a sales contract feeling more confident that the inspection process won’t be a looming deal-breaker! You may even want to consider hiring a home inspector prior to listing to give you a firsthand professional opinion on what may or may not be necessary to take care of prior to listing and entering into the sales transaction contract process.
I am also available as your Listing REALTOR® to represent you during this process if you live out of town and cannot be present for any required on-site visits by local contractors, if required.
