Dallas Pre-listing Home Inspection Benefits

There are many benefits to having your Dallas area home inspected before listing. With a pre-listing home inspection your home could sell faster and for more money without any renegotiations because results of the inspection will be presented ahead of time. Your potential buyer will be reassured about the condition of the home from the detailed inspection report. A pre-inspected listing will also give you the ability to fix any problems and deal with any issues ahead of time, so there won’t be any surprises.


  1. A pre-listing home inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
  2. The seller can choose a thorough, Professional Home Inspector to inspect the home properly before the buyer's inspector arrives.
  3. The seller can schedule the inspection at his or her own convenience.
  4. The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection -- something not normally done during a buyer's inspection.
  5. The inspection may alert the seller to any immediate concerns, such as radon gas or an active termite infestation.  
  6. A seller inspection reveals problems ahead of time, which:
    1. Gives the seller time to shop for competitively-priced contractors to make repairs;
    2. Permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report;
    3. Makes the home show better after problems are addressed;
    4. Removes over-inflated buyer-procured repair estimates from the negotiation table – saving the seller $$$
  7. The inspection report can be made available to potential clients at showings and open houses.
  8. A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
  9. The report provides an unbiased, third-party, professional opinion to potential buyers.
  10. The report may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency, so the deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer's inspection reveals unexpected problems at the last minute.
  11. The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
  12. The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.
  13. The report may relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before he walks away.

In this real estate market, there are many homes available, and buyers can afford to be picky.  Having your home inspected prior to selling differentiates your home from all the others, making it stand out to buyers.  If you are selling your home and want to get the maximum amount for it, get it inspected, and make it Move-In Ready.
