A1 Property Inspections of Greater Northwest Indiana

Pre-Inspection Services

For sellers, the benefits of a pre-inspection are less clear-cut. At the very least, it offers some peace of mind: Identifying problems, or lack thereof, can soften the suspense of waiting to hear back from the buyer's home inspector about possibly pricey repairs that might be deemed necessary.

Sellers may not even be selling their home. They may be refinancing their home which requires a pre-inspection to be done.

Why get a pre-listing home inspection?

Below are some of the key benefits that we routinely see for homeowners when getting a pre-listing home inspection with A1 Property Inspections. Not only will this benefit all parties involved it will also help real estate agents sell your home as they will be able to know more of the ins and out's of your home.
  • Time - Selling real estate agents are able to quickly answer questions homebuyers have making the buying decision go faster.
  • Options - Sellers can choose who they want to perform the inspection who they know and trust. This can assist in providing details of equipment maintenance, supply dates of improvements, and explanations for current conditions.
  • Flexibility - Sellers gain more time to make repairs and compare bids on work to be done, and can truly provide full disclosure to their potential buyers.
  • Accurate pricing - A pre-listing home inspection helps the agent set the seller's price expectation and can be used to substantiate a higher asking price.
  • No surprises - Agents will have fewer issues to negotiate at the 11th hour, and buyers may even waive their inspection if the inspection was already done meaning a faster closing.
  • Full disclosure - Buyers' benefits include receiving a third-party review of the home's condition before making an offer which can assist in procuring financing.
  • Stress relief - The inspection can remove any doubt the buyer might have regarding any initial concerns and may also reduce the stress associated with purchasing a home.

Being proactive and getting a pre-listing home inspection can uncover potential surprises that could derail the sale of your house or cost you money.
