Debbie Senseney, Licensed Broker | REALTOR with AGENT509 | Homes & Equity R.E Group summarizes three valuable things that sellers benefit or get value from having a  "Home Pre-Inspection."  Saving you time, headaches and most importantly, money.  

As Debbie states, nobody wants surprises after they have an offer on their home and have agreed on a price with the buyer.  That’s why at AGENT509 she works with our  clients to ready their home for being on the market.  The recommendation of a home and a roof inspection is one of the most important steps.  These  inspections gives all of us the power to navigate through the process of listing and selling a from a position of knowledge.  We need to know upfront what issues exist with the home and roof so we can acknowledge and address them now…not get unpleasant news after a buyer does their own home inspection.  Those pre-inspections also give buyers the ability to make an offer on your home knowing the facts. 

We have learned from our mistake, we combine cutting edge technology with pragmatic boots on the ground research. For example, Debbie had a listing with one of her clients where home they had lived in their home for  only 6 years and the roof was new when they purchased it.  In the hectic process of organizing, staging, professional photography,  theor roof did not get inspected and that was a mistake.  The roof was indeed new but was done by the homeowner himself and done incorrectly.  This came to light during an inspection by a buyer and was not the time we wanted learn this fact.  Suffice it to say we now always get a 5 year roof certification or bid for replacement prior to listing.  

Home and roof inspections long with other steps we take will make listing your home a smoother process.  They will help your home sell quicker and most likely for more money!
