When you put your home on the market, you want it to sell quickly—and profitably. And one of the best tricks you can use to sell your home faster and for a higher price? Scheduling a home inspection before you list.
A recent article on Realtor.com broke down the benefits of having your home inspected before you start showing it to potential buyers. Scheduling a home inspection before you put your home on the market gives you a heads-up on any necessary repairs that could lower your home’s selling price (or kill the sale entirely). Knowing what’s wrong with your home gives you extra time to find the right team and schedule repairs (instead of scrambling at the last minute to find anyone who can take the job before you close). And once you have those fixed, it can help you fetch a higher asking price and increase your profit from your home sale.
If you’re thinking about selling your home, do yourself a favor and schedule an inspection before you list. Not only will this give you key insights into any necessary repairs, but it can also help you sell your home faster (and for a higher price) once you do put it on the market.
