Home Inspections For Sellers

Selling Your Home?
Want to improve Your Bottom Line?
Invest in a Marketing Inspection!

Home buyers will almost certainly make an offer that is contingent on the results of an inspection, and they will almost certainly make an amended offer based on the results of that inspection.  Your goal is to improve your Bottom Line by minimizing the difference between your asking price and closing price, and have the entire process go as quickly and smoothly as possible.  A marketing inspection will play an important role in achieving this goal by…

Don’t burden the buyer with repairs!

  • • Receiving some DIY repair tutoring during the inspection.

  • • Satisfying the requirements of third parties in the transaction such as realtors, attorneys, appraisers, lenders, insurers and title companies.
  • • Attracting more potential buyers and reducing buyer resistance.
  • • Reducing the probability of the buyer requiring an inspection.
  • • Posting a sign with your “For Sale” sign that states…
