Getting a Home Inspection Benefits the Buyers and Sellers

A home inspection is not a supposed to be a deal-breaker. It just provides information about the property to make an informed decision.

During the process of buying or selling a home some people don’t know what happens after the offer is accepted. While the buyer getting a home inspection is now very common, in recent years the Seller’s Inspection (Pre-listing Inspection) has become very popular too.

A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination where the licensed home inspector looks at the major components of the home. This includes the roof, attic, exterior, foundation, basement, electrical systems, plumbing systems, HVAC, walls, interiors, and more. A home inspection performed by a licensed home inspector is highly beneficial to both buyers and sellers.

What are the advantages of a home inspection?

The Buyers Home Inspection

Although when viewing a home, the prospective buyers can get a basic idea of the property they are looking at, it’s usually not enough information about the property.  Buyers are usually looking at what they want in a home as far as floor plan, design and space, not potential problems with a home, that’s where the home inspection comes in.

Buyers are not usually looking for things like foundation cracks, water damage, plumbing and electrical issues. Problems like these or other issues could cost the buyer thousands of dollars for repairs. With Executive Home Inspections, the Certified Master home inspector uses Thermal Imaging, a moisture meter, and his years of experience to help ensure that the homebuyer is not left with unpleasant surprises, so they know what they’re getting into.

A home inspection can also provide the buyer leverage in terms of negotiations. If there are issues that the buyer was unaware of (or the seller did not disclose), they can go back to the seller and try to renegotiate based on the home inspection findings.

The Sellers Pre-Sale Home Inspection

A home inspection performed ahead of time by the seller also known as a Pre-Listing Inspection is extremely helpful for the seller. The seller is usually trying to make the home as appealing as possible but often they focus on making the home look nice, which makes sense, but they may not be aware of underlying issues that could kill the deal.

The Pre-Listing inspection can help speed up the sale and helps get the property sold with minimal setbacks. If the home inspector finds something that the seller is unaware of, they still have time to fix the issue before listing the property or they can simply disclose it, so it’s known to the prospective buyer beforehand.
