Another Q&A from the San Jose Mercury News: Why is Our Broker Insisting on Pre-Sale Inspections?

lw4n6581.jpg Q: I thought buyers paid for inspections, why does my listing agent keep insisting on us paying for seller inspections?

A: Your astute agent knows your home will sell better and faster with a full disclose package, which includes inspections. Moreover, pre-sale inspections also tend to keep a seller out of legal disputes.
