Should I have a home inspection before I list my home?
Dear Pearl Realty,
I am getting ready to list my home very soon and I wanted to know if I should get a pre-inspection prior to putting it on the market. A friend of mine recently sold her house without this and the final inspection proved to be very costly. While I know my home is in good condition, I do not want to be in the same bind as my friend. When she wen through her inspection, she says they found things in places she never thought to look. Before I meet with my agent, should I push for an inspection right away to avoid any unforeseen surprises?
Thank you for your excellent question! You may be surprised to know that this topic comes up a lot in…
