How a Pre-Home Inspection Can Sell "The Silence of the Lambs" Home & Other Infamous Properties in the 2016 Real Estate Market

EWING, NJ--(Marketwired - January 14, 2016) - HouseMaster, the first and most experienced home inspection franchise company in North America, announces some tips for selling an infamous property through the Pre-Inspection process in the 2016 Real Estate market.

The first thing people see is the description of the property in an online listing. A great example is the recent listing of the "Silence of the Lambs House" from the movie. The biggest mistake here is that the Agent did not state that the notorious serial killer scene of the basement pit wasn't filmed on this property. What a grave error, even though the listing itself is the #2 most clicked property on the site for only $249,000. See it here 

How could they speed up their sale even more? The HouseMaster Pre-Inspection process is a small investment in giving a potential buyer peace of mind. Our certified inspectors, independent franchise owners are in 315 franchise locations all across the US and Canada. Having a Pre-Inspection allows a seller to give a prospective buyer a clear picture of any serious flaws found and is a tool for bargaining before you make an offer. It shows your home is 'an open book'. A pre-inspection is a goodwill gesture and demonstrates a willingness to go above and beyond while setting you apart from other properties, and that you're upfront about any problems. A pre-inspection gives you, the seller significant options. Valuable information reported on issues can be addressed before listing the home and aid for a quick sale. Disclosing all known issues upfront through a pre-inspection protects you against claims the buyer might make later, which can, in some cases, result in lawsuits. 

Without a pre-inspection, the buyer's inspector can discover problems you didn't know about and can lead to a price reduction and delay the sale, or worse, a canceled contract. 

With a pre-inspection, can rest assured that your real estate investment is stable, and you can celebrate with a "nice Chianti and some fava beans". Unlike Hannibal, HouseMaster always guarantees a professional inspection. 

HouseMaster offices can also provide inspection of new construction, commercial property, and foreclosures, as well as other services depending on the needs of the local community.
