Save Time and Money
The main advantage is that you can sell your home quickly without any costly negotiation and you will close on time. Typically, a home inspection period is about 10 days. If the Home Inspector finds any deficiencies, it could take up to three days to get your list of repairs the buyer is requesting. After that, it’s time to contact a professional who can make the repairs. This can take weeks to get on a contractor’s schedule without paying higher prices for expedited rates. Then you wait for the work to be completed, and depending on the project, this can take several days. The last step is the reinspection, and you cross your fingers that the rushed work was done satisfactorily. This entire ordeal can be avoided by checking out your home, calling a licensed and bonded contractor, and doing necessary repairs on your time before you list your home. Additionally, you choose the contractor and set the scope of the project, not the buyer who is looking for the highest bid. Finally, your home looks best when prospective buyers are checking out houses and making an offer, resulting in higher offer prices.
