Typically, buyers will conduct a home inspection prior to closing on a home. Sellers have the opportunity to get their home inspected before it is listed. Investing in an inspection prior to listing your home will put you at a significant advantage. You will be able to make an informed decision on any repairs that you may need and re-assure buyers that you have proactively completed an inspection by a certified home inspector. Home inspections prior to listing a home could cost anywhere from $150 to $500.
