Home Inspection: Putting Steroids on This Required Part of Selling Your Home
If you’ve ever bought a new home, then you know the drill. You decide to sell, and the real work begins. 2 huge phases are needed: (1) get your current home ready to put on the market, and (2) get the new home ready once you move in.
Within those 2 phases there are 2 critical processes, one of which will keep you busy before you sell – the dreaded Home inspection. That’s where a complete stranger, hired by a prospective buyer, shows up and for the next 6 hours goes through your home - basement, attic, roof, closets, under the kitchen sink and through any other long forgotten space. This person makes sure there are no gotchas that could end up being a costly experience for the new buyers after “Elvis has left the building.”
In many cases, what the inspector finds is as much a surprise to you as it is to the buyer. And THAT’s a problem! An avoidable one!
We emphasize the need for proper planning and regular maintenance BEFORE problems become apparent. That’s a large part of what we do at CSFTS. If your home is part of a Strata, it’s what we excel at doing. Your Strata home, is probably the most expensive investment you’ll make in your lifetime. So selling it shouldn’t be a horrific experience that uncovers water leaks, pests, rot, and so on, possibly preventing the sale.
So why not avoid it? We have software and other tools designed to not only inspect, but also to address any issues found so you can list with confidence. We also have what’s needed to lay out a plan and a budget you can live with that ensures new issues don’t develop, whether you sell now or years from now. You’ll be prepared whenever that happens. You can rest peacefully if it never happens.
Imagine putting your Strata up for sale and being able to provide an up to date Depreciation Report and Predictive Analysis of your home to those who are interested in living there after you leave.
Hassle averted! Sleepful nights! Happy, knowledgeable buyers with the right information to make the decision you hope they’ll make.
And all of this from a simple call to our offices. Once we hear from you, we’ll give you a free consultation and a full description on how we can make such things possible.
