While it is well known that buyers should obtain a house survey on a home they want to buy, but it is something that vendors should consider too. This is a highly competitive marketplace and it is important that vendors do everything they can to improve the chances of selling their home for the best possible price. One step that can achieve this is to arrange a survey for their home.
There is no need to wait for a prospective buyer to arrange for a survey for the home, it is possible for a vendor to obtain a survey before they place the property on to the market. In fact, there are many reasons why this would be a sensible move for a vendor looking to sell their home in 2019.
The information contained within the report would provide the vendor with guidance on defects in the property and what can be rectified to make improvements in the home. Creating the best possible impression at home is important and minimising the issues a prospective buyer could have with the property is a wonderful way to increase the likelihood of making a sale.
Be in control of the price you sell your home
Another major reason why many homeowners want to know what improvements or repairs they must make at home is that it leaves them in control of the price they sell the property at. When a buyer receives a property report that lists problems, they will likely try to renegotiate the price of the property, and the vendor will receive a lower price.
By obtaining the report before buyers see the home, the vendor can decide what they want to do with the property. Carrying out repair work will help them to obtain a higher price for the property while some vendors may decide that a lower price is better than carrying out repair work. No matter what decision you take, being in control of the situation is likely to be positive for many vendors.
Instil confidence in prospective buyers
If you are a vendor who has already obtained a surveyor report that you are willing to share with a prospective buyer, you will find that you can create a sense of confidence in yourself and your home. It is all too easy for buyers and vendors to act like rivals in the house selling process, but this doesn’t need to be the case. The buyer and vendor are looking for the same outcome, for a house to be sold, and if both parties work towards this goal together, it can make the process a lot simpler and easier.
Given the importance of buying a home, it is natural that many buyers will have concerns and fears over the process. If you can minimise the fears that a buyer has about the process, you will increase the chances of making a sale.
