Pre-listing Inspections

Thinking of selling your home?

Today's consumers consider three important issues when shopping for a home, LOCATION, LOCATION, and CONDITION!

Hiring qualified real estate professionals, such as a licensed broker or agent, is the first step toward gaining objectivity when selling a home. But getting more
involved in the process yourself, learning as much as you can, and providing your own extra effort can go a long way toward saving you time and money.

A KELLER HOME INSPECTION Prior To Listing Your Home May Result In Getting Top Dollar For Your Home!

Eventually your buyers are going to have an inspection performed on your home...
Unfortunately, most home inspections are performed at the request of the home buyer. however, more and more sellers are opting for a home inspection prior to putting their house on the market. By doing this, the seller can address any negative findings prior to showing the home to a prospective buyer. The seller can then take care of any deficiencies and eliminate costly renegotiations with the buyer in advance, or the seller can simply choose not to correct these items, but rather disclose them up front to the potential buyers. This can save the seller hundreds to thousands of dollars.
