Pre-Listing Home Inspections may prevent post-contract blues....

Home buyers almost always have an inspection done before proceeding with a closing.  Even if a house is sold as a short sale or a foreclosure, buyers should always include an inspection contingency.  I even recommend buyers consider an inspection for new construction.

Sellers do not like surprises - like having a buyer walk as the result of a "bad" inspection.  There will be things that show up on inspections that are minor or mostly informational.  There may be things that show up that are major problems.

Buyers do not like surprises.  As a seller, have an inspection done prior to your listingIf there are issues, fix them or address them in your seller's disclosure.  An attitude of openness will make buyer prospects feel better about your property.

As a seller do not ever fail to disclose anything about your house.  

Selling your house is a stressful time, especially if you are relocating for work, dealing with a change in financial circumstances or possibly a death in the family.  Minimize that stress by hiring a good real estate agent and follow their advice for preparing your house for sale!
