Good morning. Teresa:
Pre-inspect or not depends on the seller, their financial situation, the list price, the age of the home, the condition at time of sale of comparable homes in the area and many other variables.
People seem to generally sell "as is", "fully operational & reasonably fixed up" and "pristine". If the buyer also does an inspection, which most do, pre-inspection is usually a waste of money because 1) the price of the inspection is double paid 2) the sellers pre inspection cost could have gone to repairs 3) trip charges are doubled if the buyer finds something that could have been fixed when the service personnel were there the first time.
Generally, it seems best to visually inspect the house and get it in clean and functioning "move in ready" condition and let the buyer tell Seller what more they want done, then negotiate the scope, timing and payment mechanism for the requested repairs.
