Pre-Sale Home Inspection

Home projects you shouldn’t ignore for home maintenance

Pre-Sale Home Inspection – Are you planning on selling your home? If the answer is yes, hopefully you will have considered selling it to House Buyers of America for a quick and hassle-free sale. However, before that happens, you will have lots to do. Will you be able to find the faults in your home before you put it on the market? Can you find any roof damage that needs looking at? Do you know how to check if your home has the right amount of foundation drainage? A lot of people think that giving their home a once over is good enough but in reality, they need to bring a professional third party in. Home inspections aren’t just for home buyers. Home sellers also gain peace of mind by investing in a thorough home inspection prior to putting a house up for sale. The last minute discovery of problems by a prospective buyer can lead to time delays, loss of a sale, added expenses and can even derail a deal altogether. Your best solution as a home seller is to have a thorough inspection done prior to putting the house on the market by a home inspector. This allows you to take care of issues, make the home more salable, create an atmosphere of a perfectly maintained home with prospective buyers, with the building before they become a problem in negotiating a deal.

Your house is one of your most important financial assets. If you are preparing to sell your house, there is good news: You don’t need to spend a lot of money on repairs to realize a strong return. In our Prepare-to-Sell study, real estate agents told us that it is the small improvements that pay the biggest dividends when a home is sold. The majority of agents who were surveyed normally advise homeowners to do as little as possible – perform touch-ups on floor tiling instead of replacing the entire floor; shampoo the carpets instead of replacing them. However, if the homeowner and their real estate agent determine that the condition of certain areas is deemed to be too poor, more extensive work may provide the
greatest benefit. The following is a summary of the results of 2012 national survey, based on the 12 areas of home improvement identified by real estate agents in this original survey in 2013. They are listed from the
highest to lowest returns on investment:
