Should you have the property pre-inspected?

Peace of mind is as important to potential buyers as location, curb appeal, and a good price. For this reason, you might consider having your home pre-inspected. Pre-inspection allows you to fix any problems and will assure buyers that there are no surprises.

A pre-inspected home eliminates any last-minute price negotiations if an inspection uncovers a needed repair. Sometimes, a less than favourable inspection report can bring the whole purchase into question.

A guaranteed pre-inspection is a powerful selling tool because it reassures buyers that you're offering the real McCoy. It can help build trust by reducing "buyer beware" anxiety and this can speed up negotiations.  A professional pre-inspection allows you to give prospective buyers a written checklist of the home's major systems and assets. It will outline any needed repairs or concerns and estimates the lifespan of the structural components.
