If you are going to sell your home without the services of a Realtor – you might want to consider running a ‘pre-inspection’. Basically, it will give you some insight as to what could come up in an inspection during a buyer’s contract period.
Why spend the money? Well, why risk not having your house sold when under contract? The more information you have about the current state of your home, the better. Hell, even if you list your home on the MLS – your agent will love you for having this pre-inspection checklist. It gives the realtor a leg to stand on when negotiations start. (And they always do.)
