Pre-Listing Inspection

Pre-listing Inspection

Pre-listing inspections are done to make sure you know as a seller what items should be fixed prior to listing the property.  The goal is to make the sale process as simple as possible and keep as much money in your pocket after the sale.  The goal is to sell your home for as much as you can!

This inspection determines the condition of the home and identifies needed repairs. The NAR feels the same way.

After you have completed the recommended repairs you have chosen to do, you will provide your potential home buyer with a copy of the original inspection report and copies of receipts of any repairs you have made.

For an additional fee, we will re-inspect those areas you have chosen to make.

This report can be a valuable sales tool.

The prelisting inspection provides you with a better understanding of the conditions of your home, revealing conditions which may be discovered by the home inspector of your potential buyer.

The prelisting inspection provides you with an opportunity to make repairs and improvements that maximizes your selling price and helps the sale go smoothly.

Do not hold back!  Tell your inspector everything that is wrong with the home. This is your opportunity to do the right thing.

The inspector is your partner in the real estate transaction not the enemy!
