Selling Your House? 3 Reasons to Get a Pre-Listing Inspection November 28, 2017

Selling Your House? 3 Reasons to Get a Pre-Listing Inspection, Red Wing, Minnesota

If you are thinking about selling your house, you might be more focused on shopping for a new property than having your current one inspected. However, hiring a construction expert to closely examine your abode is incredibly helpful, especially if you want to sell it for an excellent price. Lawrence Realty Inc helps clients across the Red Wing, MN, area list their homes and has three reasons you should get an inspection before selling.

Fix the Right Things

When an inspector goes through your house, they will check for everything from damaged electrical lines and leaky plumbing fixtures to structural concerns and HVAC issues. Although inspectors might uncover problems you didn’t even know existed, this information gives you the opportunity to fix things buyers might be worried about before you spend money other places. For example, if your inspector notices your circuit breaker is overloaded, upgrading your electrical system before repainting the downstairs bathroom might be a better investment. 

Prevent Hang-Ups

Since selling a house is more of a process than a singular event, having a pre-sale inspection streamlines the entire transaction. Because you are identifying issues and resolving them proactively, inspections prevent buyers from rethinking their decision or requesting additional repairs along the way. Additionally, pre-sale inspections help you relax during the traditionally nerve-wracking “discovery phase” of a real estate sale. When buyers request their own inspection, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing you already handled the most serious issues. 

Prepare for Negotiations 

selling your houseIf your inspector discovers big problems and you don’t want to fix them before selling your house, you can use the information to prepare for negotiations. For example, if your inspector notices your roof needs to be replaced, you can provide buyers with a credit for the repair. In addition to building trust with the people you are working with, this kind of information helps you speed up negotiations.  

Whether you aren’t sure where to start or you have recently completed your home inspection and you’re ready to list, the brokers at Lawrence Realty Inc in Red Wing, MN, will help. With a broad network of buyers and a commitment to assisting their clients in negotiations, this team of experienced real estate agents has what it takes to sell your home for top dollar.
