Home Inspections for Home Sellers

Home Inspections for Home Sellers

A professional home inspection from Frontier is extremely valuable for home sellers. By getting a home inspection before putting your house on the market you can get a better understanding of the condition of your home before putting up the "For Sale" sign and ensure there won't be any surprises when the buyer's home inspector does their report. This will make the selling process easier. It also allows you to make necessary changes in a leisurely manner as opposed to hasty and expensive last-minute fixes.

Benefits of Pre-Listing Inspections:

Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:

• It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party. It helps you to price your home realistically.

• It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that defects won't become negotiating stumbling blocks later.

• There is no delay in obtaining the Use and Occupancy permit.

• You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors (get multiple estimates over time) or make the repairs yourself, if qualified.

• It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.

• It may alert you of items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.

• It may relieve prospect's concerns and suspicions.

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

• Alerting you to immediate safety issues before agents/visitors tour your home.
