Get Your San Antonio Home Inspected Before Listing it on the Market

Most people know that home inspectors inspect houses for home-buyers, but do you know how much money a pre-listing home inspection can save a San Antonio home-seller? The Pre-Listing Home Inspection is powerful demonstration of good faith by a seller, showing that their home was treated with care and well-maintained. A seller’s house inspection also saves the home seller money by giving them a heads-up on any major defects found with their home, so that they can take more time to shop bids for repairs and pre-emptively remove those items from the buyer’s punch-list.

If you’re selling your San Antonio house, you want the process to be as quick and easy as possible. After all, the mortgage still needs to be paid every month and even in a hot real estate market, you can bet that any prospective home buyer is going to have the home inspected before they purchase it from you. If the buyer’s inspection uncovers major issues, the buyer will likely want to discount the selling price on their terms with their repair estimate, or even just walk altogether, costing you time and money. By putting the home inspection at the beginning of the sales process, sellers are able to streamline the sale by removing potential surprises before they turn into big problems. Pricing the home with the information gained from the home inspection report will lead to more accurate expectations for both the seller and the buyer.

The information provided in the report is your confidential information, belonging and disclosed to  nobody else but you, to be done with as you wish. I follow the exact same standard of inspection quality and detail when preforming a sellers inspection as I would a buyer, ensuring you’ll know what a potential buyer would know when they have the home inspected.
