If you’re selling a home, you will get the highest price in the shortest time, you will want to find out about any hidden problems before your house is listed or just after it has been listed. There is no written report, this is an evaluation between seller and inspector. It is totally up to the seller as to what they want to repair.
Most real estate sales contracts have an inspection contingency. Buyers will insist on a professional home inspection performed by a state certified inspector they will hire. If the buyer’s home inspector finds a problem, it can cause the buyer to get cold feet and walk away. At best, problems uncovered by the buyer’s home inspector will cause delays in closing, and usually leaving you to pay for repairs at the last minute, or making you have to accept a lower price on the home. If you have an advanced notice of what the buyers home inspector might find, you can address those items in a timely and sometimes less expensive way on your terms.
We recommend all sellers have a “Pre-Listing Consultation performed before your home is listed or shortly after and here is why. Typically within 10 days of an accepted purchase offer for your home, a buyer will hire a home inspector to check out your home. In most cases you will eventually be presented with the ” BINSR - Buyer’s Inspection Notice and Seller’s Response”
Unfortunately, in our litigious society, home inspectors have become targets. As a result, many home inspectors will tend to call out just about anything as “suspect” or provide a comment similar to the following: “recommend further evaluation or repair by a specialist.”
What is a Pre-Listing Consultation?
Home Inspectors work for their client – nearly 80% of the time this is the buyer. A pre-listing consultation is a service SNS Home Inspections LLC offers to help the seller prepare the home to be sold before it is listed or immediately after it is listed, before the buyers home inspector has checked the home.
Examples of our consultation services are:
Perform a visual inspection of the major systems and components to check for maintenance issues or defects.
Explain to the seller what the issues are and how they could affect the sale of the home.
Discuss general things sellers can do to prepare the home for the buyers home inspection.
Discuss common issues found with home inspections.
Provide a copy of the AtoZ Standards of Practice for Professional Home Inspectors so you understand what and why the buyer home inspector is going look at the various areas of the home.
Preform a walk-through of the homes interior and exterior, check the roof and attic, and discuss any options for improvement.
THIS IS A CONSULTATION, NOT A HOME INSPECTION, NO WRITTEN REPORT WILL BE PROVIDED.
The cost of a Pre-listing inspection consultation is about 1/2 - 2/3 of what a normal inspection would cost and typically lasts about 1-2 hours. Also if you hire SNS Home Inspections LLC to preform a pre-listing consultation on your current home you will save $25 off your home inspection for your future home.
