If you’re selling your home in North Georgia this summer, there’s one piece of pre-sale advice that will almost always pay off: the pre-sale home inspection.
You might be surprised to learn that many sellers elect not to take advantage of this service—but I can’t say I blame them. A home inspection costs money (usually a couple hundred dollars), and it seems counter-intuitive: “Why would you want to bring up your home’s flaws?” Plus, it’s just one more thing to do when selling your North Georgia home. “Why borrow trouble?”
In fact, there are compelling reasons to take this extra step:
Even if you elect not to resolve the issues you discover, any buyer writing an offer for your home will already have knowledge of these issues, so the faults won’t need to be further negotiated. If your buyer tries to do so, I’ll be here to point out that this was already disclosed when they wrote the offer!
Bottom line? If you’re selling a home in North Georgia this summer, consider spending the couple extra hundred dollars. You’ll be entering your transaction with confidence!
