I am a big fan of having my sellers get a pre-sale home inspection before we place their home on the market. Our history of homes we’ve sold that were pre-inspected shows us that it is clearly an advantage for sellers because their homes sell faster and for more money than those that chose not to do this. However, often times when I bring up this topic at my listing appointments I get the same questions from each seller. Below you will find common questions as well as my advice to my sellers.
-"Doesn't the buyer usually pay for it? I'd rather not pay for it I don't have to."
-"Isn't it better to wait so that a buyer doesn't know everything that's wrong with the house and they decide not to make an offer?"
