Did you know that pre-sale building and pest inspections are not only for buyers, but sellers can benefit from them too?

Pre-Sale pest and building Inspections can help sell your home fast

Properties in top tip condition can quickly sell at a high price. As a vendor, you’ll want to get the best market price for your property, and a full disclosure of the state of the home can help you achieve that.

A pre-sale pest and building inspection report helps buyers make an informed decision about any conditions that can assist in negotiating a realistic sale price.

  1. Getting a professional’s point of view on the condition of the property will help you assess the best price of the home you are selling.
  2. If repairs are needed, you will have the time to look for contractors with competitive bids rather than hiring someone on a rush.
  3. Pre-sales property inspections help avoid a broken or delayed sale that might arise from “surprises” uncovered by the buyer’s inspector.
  4. You can negotiate with the client to accept the property as it is, resulting in a simple transaction.

Having a pre-sale property inspection report at hand can be an incentive because potential clients will appreciate your transparency.
