Sellers – Get an inspection done first!

A common thought among real estate sellers is that buyers have inspections done after they have found a house they want to buy and have negotiated a contract.

Inspections by the buyer is a critical step in the real estate purchase.

But, if you are the seller, I recommend you get an inspection done at the time you place it on the market. Why?

If your home is more than a few years old there may be some hidden issues. Some may be minor while some may require a service call by the appropriate professional.

Why not take care of these potential “deal killers” early on?

A clean inspection report can be a plus in the marketing process – especially if your home is an older home. Also, if the purchaser does find "little" things they may be asking for concessions (read that as price cuts) in order to proceed with the deal.

You may know your home is in top notch condition but your buyers may not! A pre-listing home inspection will give you and the prospective buyers more confidence.

If you are considering selling your Brevard County Florida home, let me know. I would be happy to discuss the process and how we can help you!
