Conduct a pre-inspection.
Consider having an inspection done before even listing the property. An inspector will walk through the home making notes and suggestions on items that will need to be fixed, replaced or repaired. When completing all of this ahead of time, the buyers inspection will go that much more smoothly and buyers will feel better really getting a well-made home.
Consider offering a home warranty.
Home warranties are purchased by the seller and covers repairs for the first year such as electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling and appliances. They provide coverage while the properties on the market and for several months after closing. These warranties cost between $300 and $400 and can reassure buyers that they won’t be faced with any major repairs their first year of homeownership.
