Selling Your Palm Harbor Florida Home? Have A Home Inspection NOW!

By
Real Estate Agent with Charles Rutenberg Realty NAR 274504721

Selling your Palm Harbor Florida home? Then have a home inspection NOW! Your home inspector will check everything from the roof down to the basement (if you live in an area that has basements). You will know what needs attention if you want to get top dollar for your home.

Barbara-Jo's Beach Blog,ClearwaterFloridaRealEstateBlog.comYou aren't intested in getting top dollar? You just want to sell? Well even in this case, be sure that your buyer is going to have the home inspected and what is found may have to be addressed if you are going to make it to the closing table.

Inspecting your home now will make you aware of any major problems so you can take care of them in advance. There is nothing like the feeling you get knowing that there are no surprises coming when the buyer's home inspector starts crawling around in all of the spaces in your home.

It only makes sense to prepare your home properly and hire a certified, licensed home inspector to do the job. A home inspection saves headaches down the road and paves your way to a smooth closing.

Bob - Well since the buyer is going to have an inspection, you might as well get the major things taken care of since they will need to be done down the road!

I agree with Marte, it saves time, once you have a contract you want to close in 30 days most of the time and then sellers will have to take whomever they can find in a hurry to do whatever it needs. If a simple repairs takes two weeks to complete, you just "lost" two weeks As for disclosing, you might as well have it up front, because if it comes up later, at the buyers inspection, they  will wonder if you were trying to hide it. It is a lot easier for a buyer to deal with it, if they know it ahead of time rather than finding out in the midst of getting ready for closing.

Absolutely, Clara, everything HAS TO BE disclosed anyway and you are helping yourself by getting things ready for the next person NOW. Thanks for commenting.
