If you’re selling a loft in DTLA, you might think about hiring a home inspector – even though it’s almost a certainty that the buyer who makes an offer on your home will hire one, too.
Here’s what you need to know.
Should You Hire an Inspector if You’re Selling Your Loft?
No home is 100 percent perfect. In fact, even brand-new construction has issues. That means that there’s bound to be something in an inspection report that enables a buyer to negotiate with you.
If you can head off issues that a buyer’s inspector will eventually find, though, you’re likely to end up saving money. That’s because rather than having to lose out on money in the sale of your home (buyers will either ask you to come down on the price for repairs they’ll have to make or they’ll ask you to repair the issues before they agree to buy).
Even better, though, is that you won’t have to scramble to fix things at the last minute, with closing day looming ahead. In many cases, when a buyer’s inspector uncovers issues with a home, the homeowner has a specific deadline. If you’ve addressed all the things the buyer’s inspector would have found, you’re ahead of the curve (and you won’t have to scramble).
