Normally before a buyer purchases a home they will hire a licensed home inspector to conduct the inspection. However, wouldn’t it be nice for you to be proactive and find any deficiencies beforehand and have the time to correct them?
Sellers who have a home inspection upfront can identify any major problems with the home that may derail a future sale. Any major repairs can be addressed and may be more cost effective than having the buyer’s contractor do the work. It also gives you time to obtain contractor price quotes and have the work done on your schedule rather than rushing to have it done before closing.
