If you are selling a home, NORTHERN CALIFORNIA HOME INSPECTIONS will assist you in getting the highest price in the shortest time. As a seller you want to find out about any hidden issues with your property before your house goes on the market. Most real estate sales contracts include the condition that the contract is contingent upon completion of a satisfactory inspection. This is known as the “inspection contingency”. We at Northern California Home Inspections have performed hundreds of these inspections for buyers.
Buyers will insist on a professional home inspection performed by an inspector of their choice. If the buyer’s inspector finds issues with the property they weren’t made aware of, it can cause the buyer to have doubts and the agreement can fall apart. At best, surprise problems uncovered by the buyer’s inspector will cause delays in closing, and usually you as the seller will have to pay for repairs at the last minute, or take a lower price on your home.
It’s better to have your own inspection before putting your home on the market. Having a pre-listing inspection done by Northern California Home Inspections will make the entire sale process easier. Find out about previously unknown situations with your home and have them corrected in advance, on your terms. Or present the items “as is” and reflected in the purchase price. Otherwise, you can count on the buyer’s inspector finding them, at the worst possible time, causing delays, and costing you more money.
Realtors are very pleased when sellers get a pre-listing inspection as they then can move forward aggressively with confidence in your now listed property knowing there will be no surprises come up after they have invested substantially into the marketing of your property. It is a valuable asset to selling your home and also selling yourself to your realtor.
Buyers are leery and everything you can do to add credibility to yourself and your property can only help you. We at Northern California Home Inspections understand both sides of this equation to be able to serve you properly.
