Not Just A Home Inspection…A Home Instruction!

Beginner’s Guide to Seller’s Home Inspection

Whether you are selling your home by yourself or are working with a realtor. The wisest decision you could ever make is to have a seller’s home inspection carried out by licensed professionals. 

At Home Quest Home Inspection, we provide Seller Home Inspection. To help you address issues if any before you could list your property on the market. And have potential buyers touring around your home. There is power in knowledge. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation. All homes have strengths and weaknesses. Our licensed Newtown home inspectors are here to help you highlight the positives and address the negatives.  

You might be wondering why carry on an inspection when the buyers will hire a professional to do it anyway?

Get rid of this thought. Getting a pre-listing inspection offers more advantages as a seller. 

  • Know the exact conditions of the home. You can have them fixed before anything worse happens.
  • Get to price the home easier. Having your home inspected before putting it in the market can help your agent price it better and more accurately. Just like we know how much score we’d likely get after spending an entire week studying for an exam. 
  • Buyers will know that you put much value on the property and that you value safety and convenience. It’s a sign of honesty and integrity. It only shows how upfront you are with your potential buyers. It is a clear signal that you are not hiding anything. This helps make the buyer feel confident enough to submit an offer. Moreover, this initiative is a clear indication that you value the home and that you care for the next homeowners’ safety and convenience.

“I was so pleased with the quality and professionalism of Home Quest when I used them for my Condo purchase, that I had to return back to them for my first home purchase with my wife! John Koch was exceptional and walked through the entire inspection process with my wife and I as first-time home buyers. He was respectful, had a great deal of knowledge, and explained everything to us in great detail throughout the entire inspection process. John created a wonderful environment and made the inspection process for my wife and I enjoyable. I highly recommend Home Quest to anybody looking for a reputable and respectful home inspector.” – Review of Home Quest Home Inspection By Demetrios Xenikakis
