Pre-sale home inspections help us plan our pricing strategy for your home. More importantly, it affords you the homeowner the opportunity to hire someone (or do it yourself) to do repairs they are competent in performing at a lesser dollar amount. You can shop around for the best deal. When a buyer is involved the secenario can be very different.
It’s often a good idea to have one or more inspections done prior to placing your home on the market. The results will give you a better understanding of conditions which may be discovered by the buyer's inspector, and an opportunity to make repairs ahead of time
Some of the inspections that we will consider include:
We will also discuss these Seller disclosures:
- Earthquake Fault Zones
- Local Seismic Hazard Zones
- State Fire Responsibility Areas
- National Flood Insurance Program Areas
- Landslide Inventory Report
- Liquefaction Susceptibility Determination
- Flood and Inundation Hazards
- Transfer Disclosure Statement and Addendum
I will help you determine which inspections and disclosures you should or must undertake. In general, knowledge is preferable to ignorance in any matter relating to the condition of the home you are selling. Avoiding discovery of a problem with your property will not make it go away!
Once you are prepared with the inspection reports you need, we will take some steps to make sure your home looks its best. By the time it’s ready to view, your home should look simply irresistible to buyers.
