We are often asked by sellers in Dublin, Ohio and surrounding communities if they should get their home inspected prior to putting the home up for sale.

There's no short answer. We specialize in Dublin Ohio Homes for Sale and can tell you most home owners do not get a professional inspection prior to putting their home up for sale. But every home is different. If you are thinking about selling, hire a good real estate agent to walk through your home to guide you on process. Often, a seasoned agent will be able to spot if a specific area of your home might need an extra set of eyes. Many agents also have a list of current home inspectors that can come to your home to give you their professional opinion.

Most inspectors charge between $250 and $500 to do a home inspection. The process usually takes three hours. You'll definitely want to make sure the inspection begins during the day, so the inspector has plenty of daylight to walk around the exterior of the home.

Many inspectors give a written report to the home owner within 24 hours, detailing any areas that may need repairing. Feel free to get a second opinion, and no two home inspectors are alike.

Please keep in mind that the buyer who writes an offer on your home will most likely have their own home inspector. That inspector may find additional items that the buyer may ask you to fix. Ultimately, buyers and sellers have to agree on what repairs will be done to the home prior to sale. A great real estate agent can help you navigate this process and minimize your out of pocket costs.

If you are thinking about selling, call The Hetheringtons.

They make house calls and will guide you every step of the way.
