Home inspections are a vital part of the home buying process with Ridgecrest, CA homes for sale.  Most buyers opt to have one performed by a home inspector. However, what about utilizing a home inspection as marketing tool before a home is placed on the market? There are several ways a seller can benefit from a pre-listing home inspection. Remember...

 

 

 

1. The pre-listing inspection does not take place of the buyer's inspection during escrow.

2. There is less chance the buyers will back out of a sale during escrow if major issues are 

    discovered by an inspector and repaired before the sale.

3. The seller's disclosures will be more "bullet proof" if accompanied by a written report by a

     home inspector.

4. If issues are discovered the seller has more time and opportunity to receive more bids for the

    work to be complete, thus possibly saving more money.

5. The seller is in a better negotiating position if any items on the inspection are repaired.

6. If issues are repaired the home will show better and may sell for a higher price.
