Prior to Listing - Get a Home Inspection!

Know what issues you have with your home prior to listing it!  Dont be surprised later when you have an offer and an inspectors comes through only to find items that you could have taken care of before you listed it.

Property Details in the MLS

Example Property Overview
This property is "Well Maintained" all stone exterior, loads of space and large rooms throughout, including newer kitchen countertop, 3 bedrooms on the main floor, "New Furnace" and "Newer Roof".

What does that actually mean?

What a seller believes and what is reality could be two different senerio's.  If I would have been called prior to listing the property things would have been much different.


Well Maintained is in the Eye of the beholder.  Sometimes it is not actually true.  Easy fixes eliminate the home inspector from thinking that the seller is hiding things when obvious items are wrong.  The picture above is LVT tile that is curling and pulling apart.  Use of a mop causes many problems. How about door trim boards not lining up correctly and hardwood floors that have seen its better days and need to be refinished or new paneling to freshen up a room.

New Furnace - What does it really mean when it is listed as "New".  If the furance is older than 2 years old it should not be listed a new.  Be honest and there is no need to even list it in the overview.

New Roof - If it has streaks running down to the gutter ,covered in moss or is cracking, curling or cupping it is not newer.  Even if you had the roof installed in the last 5 years it is only new the same year it was installed.
