A pre-listing inspection is for homeowners who are planning to list their house on the market but have not yet put it up for sale.
Pre-listing inspections are typically done by the homeowner because they want to make sure that their home is in good condition.
What is a Pre-Listing Inspection?
A pre-listing inspection is the same as a buyer’s inspection, but it is done by the homeowner and not the buyer.
The inspector will assess the home and its major systems to determine if the home has been well-maintained and that the home is in good condition to be put up for sale.
Why Get a Pre-Listing Inspection?
Many homeowners choose to get a pre-listing inspection because it will give them insight into their home so that they know what to expect and can make repairs before listing their home.
The majority of buyers choose to get a buyer’s inspection, so a pre-listing inspection is a good idea for homeowners so that the buyer’s inspection doesn’t find any major defects that the owner didn’t know about.
Benefits of a Pre-Listing Inspection:
- Can reveal problems that the owner wasn’t aware of
- Is useful for comparing to the buyer’s inspection
- Allows the owner and realtor to properly price the home when listing
- Creates trust with potential buyers
- Increase market value
