If you have been consistent with upkeep since you moved into your home and are interested in selling your house, you may be determined to sell it in turnkey condition. While you will know about the condition of certain features that are easy to inspect on your own, you may have a beautiful fireplace that you have invested a lot of time and effort into keeping up an attractive appearance.
To make sure that your fireplace and chimney are ready to be looked at by potential buyers, you should get a professional chimney inspection before you list the property for sale. Keep reading for additional reasons to add getting your fireplace and chimney inspected before putting a ‘For Sale’ sign on your front lawn.
When a buyer sees your property, you want them to look at the fireplace and be impressed. Although their vision of the chimney may be somewhat limited whether they are looking at it from the inside or outside, a thorough inspection will help you to provide a desirable fireplace.
If you begin the house selling process without getting an inspection, you may not feel confident about people coming in for a tour. Not being able to guarantee that the chimney is in excellent condition is something that can lead to complications during a negotiation. Even if you do not engage with buyers directly, you should still feel confident about the home you are selling as it will make for a much smoother process.
During the inspection, you will find out if the chimney has any problems. If there are issues, you can have them resolved right away so that you can get one step closer to listing the property. In addition to an inspection, you should get chimney cleaning to make sure it is ready for use.
When you get a report for the inspection, you can even show it to potential buyers to give them peace of mind that they are making an offer on a home that has been well-maintained.
