You want to know the condition of your home before you decide on a selling price. You want to avoid renegotiating the selling price of your home after the buyer's home inspection takes place.

Level the playing field, by discovering any problems that may exist in advance, when there is time to handle them.

  • Fewer Surpises: If a buyer knows most or all defects up front, the defects take on their proper perspective.
  • Fewer renegotiations: If a buyer is not aware of a major defect prior to making an offer, the tendency is to pull out of the sale or to renegotiate the selling price once the defect becomes known.  With prior knowledge, he should have already taken the defect into consideration.  If not, he has little leverage for renegotiating.
  • Less Litigation:  Problems disclosed up front defuse litigation.
  • Higher Sales Price:  Buyers don't "hold back" for unexpected problems.
