The Importance of Pre-Inspection




Today, Cal Couch from Trademark Pest Control and Home Inspection joins us to discuss preparing your home to sell for top dollar. We’ll answer the following question: how can I compete against the competition to reach a buyer?
Sellers can maximize the potential of their listing by hiring an inspector ahead of time. Inspectors commonly find ceiling stains, active termites, or even defective roof shingles. All of these things could be found before putting the home on the market. If repairs and other issues are taken care of ahead of time, they reduce the negotiation period and help maximize your home's value. Having your property pre-inspected and adding a termite bond will make buyers feel more confident from the beginning!
A pre-inspection doesn't have to be expensive. At Trademark, we have two different types of inspections. We offer a full inspection and also a bird’s eye inspection. The bird’s eye inspection costs half the price of a full one!
Even if you don’t want to spend that money, you can do some simple things yourself. Make sure all major appliances and HVAC systems function properly. Look for stains in the ceiling and address them right away. Don’t make the mistake of painting a single spot on the ceiling, either; it’s important to paint the entire ceiling. These minor steps can save you a lot of trouble down the road.
If you’re looking to get an inspection, you can visit Trademark’s website at www.trademarkps.com or call 770-614-6534. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
