Pre-Listing Inspection

Maximize your sale

Selling your home can be stressful enough to begin with. Making sure you pick the right realtor, getting the property appraised, having strangers coming in while it’s on the market, negotiating on the price. When there are hidden issues  that can be noted during a home inspection initiated by the buyer, this can make things even more stressful. These issues, whether big or small can effect the sale in more ways than just the price. They can lengthen the process by several weeks, or even months.

Don't compromise

When issues are found, and they usually are, making the repairs is necessary to continue the process. When the buyer has an inspection done then that leaves you with very little time to get the repairs made. When this is the case, often you will need to compromise with who you have make the repairs, which could cost you more money, and risk hiring someone less qualified. Having the issues found before the property goes on the market gives you time to shop around or even make the repairs yourself. Often, you will find things that could help you increase your resale value.

Make a quick sale

When you have a pre-listing inspection preformed and make the necessary repairs, this will help make the sale quicker. Usually this will prevent the potential buyer from requesting an inspection be preformed, and with you having the proof to provide them showing the repairs were already made, then there will be nothing left to stall the sale, or in some cases cause you to lose a sale.

Generally an inspection will take 3-4 hours depending on the size of the property. Additional time may be required for extra services added on.

Definitely. Being present is recommended so you are able to see some of the issues first hand. Sometimes seeing these issues makes them easier to understand what is being described. You will receive an oral report of any issues at the time of the inspection as well as a written report following the inspection.

No. Even a newly built property can have issues. Manmade objects are bound to have flaws. Mistakes can be made and overlooked. Corners could be cut. Having an inspection is still a good idea.

No. Getting an inspection if you are selling a property is also a good idea. Finding and correcting any issues before the property is listed for sale will help you maximize the value of the property and help prevent any issues that could delay the sales process. Sometimes small updates to certain items such as light fixtures, window coverings or making sure all the door knobs match will have a huge impact at very little cost.  

Yes. Having the property inspected isn’t to look for ugly paint colors. Checking the condition of the furnace and hot water heater and checking that they are functioning properly is just the start. Having thermal image scanning of the windows alerts you to heat or coolant loss that could cost you more on your energy bill in the future. Checking the attic for proper insulation and venting will also help you save on heating and cooling. With a thorough inspection you’ll have the peace of mind knowing everything is working as it should and keeping your hard earned dollars in your pocket.
