Pre-Listing Inspection

We strongly recommend home sellers to obtain an inspection prior to listing their home for sale. Pre-listing inspections identify items and/or systems that are significantly deficient, dangerous, or at the end of their service life. A pre-listing inspection informs sellers of any defects or problems, so that they can be addressed before prospective buyers discover them. Sellers can then fix problems revealed during the inspection or attach repair cost estimates to the report, so that those defectives conditions do not become obstacles during the negotiation process. This inspection is also a demonstration, to prospective buyers, that the sellers are dealing in good faith and are interested in providing full disclosure of the home's condition, including repairs already performed. It is an excellent strategy that can help sellers get trust from the buyers, sell their home quicker, and get their desired asking price.

During the home inspection, the home inspector will thoroughly inspect your house within 3-5 hours and provide a detailed inspection report with pictures and suggestions for repairs or maintenance.

The home inspection includes:

  • Structural components

  • Exterior components

  • Roofing

  • Attic, insulation, ventilation

  • Plumbing systems

  • Electrical systems

  • HVAC systems

  • Interior components

  • Bathrooms

  • Kitchen and appliances

  • Garage and carport

Why Should You Perform an Inspection ?

With a pre-listing inspection, sellers have a positive selling experience because they:

  1. Have time to find an affordable contractor and make repairs before listing their home for sale.

  2. Have time to attach repair cost estimates to the report, before the negotiation process begins.

  3. Know the house problems ahead of time which give them the upper hand.

  4. Can sell the house AS IS, since the house conditions/defects are on paper.

  5. Can prevent hours in stressful re-negotiations and delays.
