Inspections BEFORE Listing?

After a training class with Janice Strong of Strong Appraisals and the changes that we are now facing with Conventional financing and FHA starting in January, my best advice would be for sellers to get a home inspection BEFORE they list. Because of the new "grading" practices it is in the sellers best interest to make sure thatALL Health & Life Safety issues are addressed prior to listing, or at the latest before the appraisal is ordered to avoid delays in closing or possibly not closing at all. Something to think about might be that the seller addresses/pays forthe home inspection and the buyer addresses/pays for the appraisal.....hmmmm, just a thought!
