The Different Options
Pre-listing inspections may bring forth any existing issues that might need attention before you sell. This allows you to complete repairs on your schedule and with trusted contractors of your choosing. Knowing your home is without major defects can make the negotiation process run smoothly, and ultimately a better monetary return for your home.
The number one reason buyers should have a home inspection completed on a future purchase is to avoid a costly mistake. Not all home owners are fully aware of the condition of their house when they are selling. It is an unfortunate truth as well, not everyone is completely honest. The best assurance you will have is to get a third party whom has nothing to gain from the sale, and is experienced in identifying what has the potential to cost you.
A house is a complex system that is typically built as a result of many people's efforts and there is always potential for errors and deficiencies to occur during construction. Another unfortunate truth is just because a home is new, does not guarantee it is properly built and free of issues. Don't let your one-year warranty pass without identifying issues the builder should correct.
