Home Inspections Help Sellers, Too
By www-thehavasuhome-com May 01, 2019

When purchasing real estate in Lake Havasu, experts recommend buyers obtain a home inspection. This helps to point out potential problems with a property. Did you know that pre-listing home inspections also benefit Havasu sellers? It’s true. And for many of the same reasons that they help buyers. So, before you put your home on the Havasu real estate market, here’s why you should consider paying a professional to conduct a pre-listing home inspection.

How Pre-Listing Home Inspections Help Havasu Sellers

Points Out Possible Issues

In much the same way that it works for buyers, pre-listing home inspections show sellers what issues need to be addressed in their real estate in Lake Havasu. This gives you the option of repairing/replacing them before you put your home on the Havasu real estate market. How does this benefit you? It allows you time to research various companies and products to make the recommended changes. In turn, this saves you money. Also, fixing the issues before you list means that you present a much better home to buyers. That boosts your home’s value and may easily bring in a higher sale price. If fixing the issues ahead of time isn’t feasible for your budget, it would be wise to obtain estimates from a few different companies so that you can present this to a buyer when you start negotiating a deal. Besides, the updated/replaced features can be touted as “brand new” or “recently updated” in your listing description.

Makes the Home Sale a Little Faster

In addition to allowing you time to fix any issues, pre-listing home inspections point out the good features your real estate in Lake Havasu has to offer. And, when you know where potential problems might lurk, you know what buyers could find if you don’t fix them. Then you’re prepared when and if this comes up during the real estate transaction. If you fix these problems, it reduces the chances of the buyer pulling out of escrow because of them.

Shows the Buyer That You’re Trustworthy

Finally, when you address any potential issues before you list your home on the Havasu real estate market, it instills a sense of trust with the buyer. They won’t feel like you’re trying to hide something from them. Even if you can’t afford to fix some of these issues, the fact that you made the effort to obtain estimates instead of sweeping the issues under the rug shows that you can be trusted.

In general, pre-listing home inspections benefit both buyers and sellers. The couple hundred dollars you spend on the inspection could translate to thousands of dollars gained at the end of a sale. So, the benefit far outweighs the cost. When you’re ready to put your home on the  Havasu real estate marketcontact me. I’d love to help you sell it!
