Tips for Wilmington, NC Sellers - Get a Preinspection

There is no piece of advice I give potential sellers that is more important than this. An inspection before listing your home can save you time, hassle and a whole lot of headaches. Ask a friend or your real estate agent for the name of a reputable, licensed inspector and schedule him or her to come over and give your house the full work up. This shouldn’t cost more than $500 and this cost up front will truly pay off in the long run.

Having a presinspection can help you as a seller in a number of different ways. First, it gives you a chance to fix problems on your own time, not when you are in the crunch between an offer and a contract. Second, it gives potential buyers confidence in your home. Knowing you are preinspected will make them more willing to trust your home and more amicable to making a good offer quickly. Third, it helps you and your listing agent determine a good, “get-able” price for your home. Not being aware of potential flaws that a buyer’s inspector could find might lead to an unpleasant surprise when it comes time for them to make an offer. Setting a reasonable price up front—one that’s based on the true condition of your house--will give you peace of mind and lead to you getting the price you want—and deserve—on your home.
