Pre-Listing Inspection Services
Sellers can also benefit from a home inspection by scheduling a Pre-Listing Inspection prior to putting their home on the market. A Pre-Listing Inspection allows you to more accurately price your home and to address any major issues that might cause a sale to fall through. Having an understanding of your home’s strengths and weaknesses puts you in control and allows you to choose the most cost-effective contractor to complete any necessary repair work.

On a basic level, a home inspection is a visual, non-invasive examination of the accessible areas of a property designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by standards of practice. The inspection typically includes the structure, roof, exterior, interior, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. While not part of the standards of practice, we also inspect the appliances and can test for radon. It’s important to note that a home inspection will not reveal every issue that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the date of the inspection.

Every inspection includes a detailed report listing any serious hazards or material defects (such as a crack in the foundation or an improperly vented furnace) as well as items needing repair or recommendations for improvement. You may share your report with your realtor or others as you need. We also include a guide to home maintenance that you will find useful.
