  2. It helps you t price your home realistically.
  3. It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that defects won't become negotiating stumbling blocks later.
  4. You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if qualified.
  5. It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
  6. It may alert you of items of immediate personal concerns, such as possible gas leaks.
  7. It may relieve prospect's concerns and suspicions.
