Step 4: Conduct a Pre-Market Inspection


I am a big believer in pre-market inspections, especially for single-family homes. This means you pay an inspector to inspect your home before it goes on the market. The cost is usually between $500 – $800, depending on the services ordered (for example, older homes benefit from sewer scopes, and basements benefit from having a radon assessment). You can then fix any items that come up in the inspection report before the home goes on the market.

It keeps you in control of repairs, not to mention you will not be as pressed for time. Sometimes buyers will even waive doing their own inspection if they can see your inspection report. If you’d like to do a pre-market inspection, let me know, and we will schedule it.

I can even be present for the inspection, so you don’t have to take any additional time off work.
