Why do some real estate agents choose to have a pre-listing inspection? Often, the buyer will have the inspection conducted him- or herself, but this does not mean that you shouldn’t consider a pre-listing inspection.
Gain Trust From the Buyer
Potential buyers may look at agents who have a pre-listing inspection conducted as more trustworthy than others. It shows that you are willing to be transparent about the home. You are not trying to hide any aspect of the house.
Homebuyers are making one of the biggest investments of their lives. They need to be able to fully trust the agent to provide them with accurate information. If you have the trust of the buyer, then you are going to have a competitive advantage over other real estate agents.
