Should You Get a Home Inspection Before You List?


I’m answering the question of whether you should get a
home inspection done before you list your home.

Should you get a home inspection before you list? Many clients have asked me this in the past. The truth is, there’s no right or wrong answer to that question. However, there are definite benefits to having a home inspection done before you put your house on the market.

If you get a home inspection done first, it alerts you to some of the things you may not have known needed to be fixed. Then you have an opportunity to mend those issues before the buyer comes along with their own inspection. (Yes, they should do a home inspection even if they know you’ve already had one done.) Then, when you’ve repaired things from your home inspection, the buyer’s inspection will be pretty good. However, another home inspector could find something the first one didn’t.

If you’d like to discuss home inspections further or have any other questions, call, text, or email me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
