Home Sellers & Buyers Benefit From Pre-Listing Inspections

Home Seller's Pre-Listing Inspection Process Overview

One of the more common reasons a home seller's real estate transaction fails to close or enter into a renegotiated price reduction after a home buyer's offer has been accepted is because of a defect(s) found at the time a buyer has a home inspection. Many home buyers often try to renegotiate their offer after the inspection stating they were not aware of the issues brought out by their home inspector  when they made their original offer or worse yet they will try to back out of the deal.

Renegotiations can easily be countered with a your pre-sale or pre-listing report that shows your inspector identified these issues first and that you took them into consideration when you priced the house. You can also obtain bids ahead on major issues, such as a roof you do not want to replace, ahead of time to counter what are usually high estimates from the buyer who wants the whole estimate price deducted from your selling price.
