LiteHouse Ready - Why Every Seller Should Get a Pre-Listing Inspection

At some point, your buyers will check out the condition of your home, likely with a Cincinnati area Home Inspector. And, you can know what they will find if you get there first. Pre-inspections help in many other ways as well, such as:



  • It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical and neutral third party.

  • Alerts you to immediate security issues before agents and visitors visit your home.

  • It can alert you to items of immediate concern, such as radon gas or an active termite infestation.

  • It allows you to make corrections ahead of time, so…

  • Defects will not become a stumbling block in negotiations later.

  • There is no delay in obtaining Occupancy.

  • You have time to get a contractor at a reasonable price or do the repairs yourself if you are qualified.

  • It will help you price your home realistically.

  • It can ease potential buyers' fears and suspicions.

  • It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection of their own.

  • It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.
