Getting ready to sell your home already comes with expenses, from cleaning to photography. So why is it worth it to pay for a home inspection?
In some cases, it can be a good idea to get an inspection done on your own home. Getting an inspection before listing your home will give you peace of mind that no issues will pop up down the line. It can also help you avoid a worst-case scenario by identifying big issues that would have hurt you on the sale of the home.
For example, if you have a leaky roof, a buyer is within their rights to walk away from the sale of the home. At the very least, it triggers a whole new set of negotiations, which will delay the sale. You’d have avoided that surprise if you’d caught that in an inspection and fixed it.
