The most feared time of the sales experience by both owners and realtors is the home inspection. It doesn’t have to be. Defects will need to be addressed sooner or later. Don’t put yourself in a bad negotiating position. Have your home inspected at the time of listing and have the report available for potential buyers. Give buyers the confidence that your home is ready to be sold and occupied. Buyers want a safe and healthy home. Make your home desirable and avoid closing delays.
