If the market is favoring sellers, why do you still recommend a pre-listing home inspection?

If the market is favoring sellers, why do you still recommend a pre-listing home inspection?

Pre-listing inspections can be a good marketing tool.  Prospective buyers may have a higher degree of confidence if the property has been inspected and the results provided and issues addressed and disclosed.

Furthermore, a pre-listing inspection can be a safety net for a seller.

When an offer does come the buyer will likely have a property inspection done.  And, even if it is an "as is" contract, if something is found to be a major problem it may cause the buyer to walk.

Even if the issues found are minor and can be addressed with an easy fix, they could likely become a "deduction" in another round of negotiations.
