Selling a home is an important financial step. The sale of your residence can turn your home equity into cash. This can be used to fund your retirement, to simply cash in, or as a down payment on your new residence. If unknown problems with your home delay the sale, however, you may find yourself unable to follow through on your plans or, worse, unable to purchase your new residence. Our Cincinnati home inspectors provide pre-listing inspections for residential sellers. Going through this process can make selling your home a more seamless process.

Home inspector shaking hands with seller

Sellers often don’t perform pre-listing home inspections. Instead, they often follow the typical process of allowing the buyer to perform an inspection after their offer has been accepted. As a result, sellers are often caught off-guard when the inspector raises issues with the home which they may not have been aware of. Since the buyer may have the right to walk away from the deal if the suggested repairs are not made, unforeseen problems with the home can result in the sale of a property being delayed, in the seller receiving less than they thought they would, or in the deal simply falling apart.

A pre-listing home inspection allows a seller to identify issues with their property before they place it on the market. You see your home through an inspector’s eyes, like you are a prospective buyer. The seller may then make the repairs prior to listing the property. They may also disclose the issues when they list the property, and adjust their pricing accordingly, so that the buyer cannot raise issues after the contract is signed. A complete inspection will include checking the roof, the basement, electrical systems, plumbing, drainage, HVAC, and more. It is important that you hire an inspector who fully inspects your property. Otherwise, you may perform a pre-listing inspection only to find out that there are additional issues which jeopardize the sale of your home.

We perform pre-listing inspections for Cincinnati and northern Kentucky sellers. Mike Hesterberg has been in the industry since 1994 and has inspected over 10,000 homes. Importantly, when performing an inspection we exceed the standards required by the American Society of Home Inspectors. This includes, for example, ensuring that all windows in a room open, while the standard only requires the inspection of one. This also includes checking all outlets in a room, testing all faucets, and more even though this level of detail is not required under the guidelines. Moreover, our certified drone pilot will use state of the art equipment to fully inspect your roof and other hard to reach areas. This ensures that your inspection uncovers issues which would otherwise be raised by a buyer with great surprise to you. We provide this level of service so that you may be confident when you put your home on the market.
