What if the home inspection came first?

Here is some food for thought for those sellers looking to put there home on the market and reduce some stress from the get go.  What if you got a home inspection done before your home hits the market?  I think this is a great idea for those clients who would like to get a jump start on any problems that may come out during a home inspection with a buyer.


Most home owners prep their homes by typically stagging and de-cluttering which is a good start but what if you took this one step further?  A home inspection could prove beneficial to the home owner to take care of a few things before the sign goes onto the front lawn by fixing a few select things on the report such as shingles on the roof, a few rotten deck boards and redirecting downspouts away from the home.


Yes, the inspection will cost you some money but it will be money well spent especially if the buyers are first time home buyers.  They can become overwhelmed with the list of repairs needed even if they are small ones they all add up.  If you can tick off some of these items before hand you are ahead of the game and feel confident that when the home inspection does happen you have done your part and have listed your property accurately.
