Professional Inspection Services for Pre-Owned Homes
With all the sheer number of pre-owned homes on the market today, you want your own listing to stand out from the crowd, right? There’s actually another way for potential buyers to get interested in your ad—and this is often overlooked—and that’s by hiring professional pre-listing inspection services.
What does that mean? If this is the first you’ve heard of the Pre-Owned Home Warranty Certification, then you’re not alone.
Why Pre-Owned Homes Need to Be Inspected?
One nagging question might be dancing around in your head right now. If nobody you know has tried pre-listing inspection, why should you care? Indeed, there are literally thousands of homes out there with no certification and they still generated a lot of interest from buyers. Why spend extra for what seemed like an unnecessary exercise?
Here’s the deal: whatever you may spend on the inspection services, you will double in returns once you put up the final value for your home. The fact is, a certified pre-owned warranty will immediately up the worth of the house you’re putting up for sale.
Benefits of Pre-Owned Homes Inspection:
- Eliminate the headache of bargaining – Potential buyers can magnify the small flaws they can find in your home in order to get a major discount. It doesn’t mind if in the end, they only spend for cosmetic changes, you still end up the loser.
- Get the advantage of warranty – Simply put, when you hire professional inspectors, you shift the liability to them. The warranty may vary but typically, it lasts for a year. Whatever corrective needs that might have been overlooked in the process of inspection will be shouldered by the third-party. Of course, the liability is not absolute, and this would be itemized in the contract you will sign.
- Give the buyers peace of mind – Now, the practical approach would be to let the old dictum, “buyer’s beware,” take its course. After all, it’s on the buyer to conduct due diligence before buying a property. Call it goodwill, but it’s a nice touch to give the potential buyer a peace of mind that the investment would be solid.
