Why Golf Home Sellers Need a Pre-Listing Home Inspection

If you're considering selling your golf home, there's a lot to think about. First and foremost is where you'll live next. And, what type of property you'd most like. Of course, there will also be things like your must-haves and wish list items.

Selling a golf home (much like any other type of property) means having to create and follow an actionable plan. For instance, you'll need to stage your home to present it in the best possible way. The reason for home staging is to not only make it look it's best but also, to help buyers. That's right. Statistically, only 1 out of 10 people can imagine a space in a different way than they see it. And, it only takes between 7 and 10 seconds for people to form a first impression. So, you've got to strike the right chord.


What is a Pre-Listing Inspection?

Typically, buyers schedule and pay for a home inspection. This usually happens after a purchase offer is accepted. It's a way to ensure the house is in good condition. Or, to proactively be informed of any existing and/or potential issues. A home inspection is conducted to identify what's known as "material defects." Material defects are problems and/or issues which devalue and/or are safety and/health hazards. In other words, a leaking roof can be classified as a material defect. But, so can the presence of something like Chinese drywall or asbestos.

“Typically, home inspections are paid for by the buyer and performed right before closing the sale of the home. By moving the inspection to the beginning of the sales cycle, sellers are able to shorten the process by removing obstacles before they can interfere with a potential sale.” --Angie’s List.com

In both those examples, the value of the house is negatively impacted. But only in the latter example presents a health hazard, while the former might present a safety hazard. This is why home sellers schedule a pre-listing inspection. Even though you live in a house, you just don't know what you don't know. In other words, there might be a problem festering that has not manifested itself. But, when a buyer conducts a home inspection, there it is and there goes the deal.
Why Golf Home Sellers Need a Pre-Listing Inspection

So, there are plenty of reasons for golf home sellers to get a pre-listing inspection. It's the best way to learn more about the property. Sure, you already know about the small problem with the outside water spigot on the side of the home. But, as mentioned, it's what you don't know you simply don't know. To put your best foot forward, you should conduct a pre-listing inspection. And, here's some of the top reasons why home sellers need a pre-listing inspection:

You’re telling buyers there’s nothing to hide. When you have a pre-listing inspection, you'll have a licensed inspector's report. That report clearly shows buyers you have nothing to hide and that you're not attempting to conceal any issues. If there are issues, you can deal with them and present the documentation to interested buyers. This way, any potential buyers know you're diligent and earnest about selling the property.

You’re helping reassure potential buyers. A pre-listing inspection (particularly one that's largely issue-free) is also a big reassurance to buyers. They'll know the home is in good condition and will have confidence if they conduct a home inspection, it will look much the same. Plus, it helps anyone who is interested the condition of the home at the time.

You’ll reduce the time it takes to close. One scenario you do want to avoid is to be caught off guard. For instance, if you don't conduct a pre-listing inspection but the buyer does have a home inspection done, should any problems come up, that's a potential deal killer. You would have avoided that unpleasant situation if you had a pre-listing inspection. So, a pre-listing inspection helps to keep the closing on track since you're being proactive.

You’re backing up your asking price. A pre-listing inspection says to buyers the home is priced right and there is no surprise expenses that might suddenly crop up. Now, a pre-listing inspection can't predict the future but it certainly does show the current condition of the home.

You’ll really be in-the-know. Another advantage of having a pre-listing inspection is that you'll be alerted to any possible future problems. For example, the pre-listing inspection might reveal something that will eventually become a real issue. So, you can deal with it now or opt to simply disclose it to potential buyers. (Savvy sellers usually deal with these kinds of situations to avoid buyer objections.)
