Pre- listing Home Inspection for Sellers


A Pre–Listing Home Inspection report objective is to assists the seller in the preparing of the home before listing their house on market. Identify to the seller major and minor defects associated with their house. Any suggest resolutions to defects stated in this report should be reviewed with a qualified contractor prior to implementing.


Selling your home can make you feel like uneasy, with potential buyers and real estate agents evaluating, judging and otherwise picking apart the place you've lived in and called home for years. Just before the actual sale comes the most intense scrutiny of all: The home inspection.

You have come to the right place and you have chosen a Certified InterNACHI inspector rather than be at the mercy of the buyer’s choice of inspector.


A report allows you to see your home through the eyes of an unbiased third-party in offering it to a potential buyer.


Scheduling your home inspection at your convenience.

A pre-listing home inspection is pretty much a given in home sales today, and on occasion it can actually can make or break the transaction. A home inspection ensures that the buyer knows exactly what they're buying, and if the seller hasn't done a full preparation so that there are no surprises, it can be a nerve-wracking experience. A little preparation may ensure the sellers in having a great home inspection, and may make less time negotiating. In this market no one can afford to lose a potential buyer.


Reducing that likelihood that your buyer is scared away by safety issues or maintenance concerns as a seller, you are very likely going to have to address some type of safety concern before you sell anyway, so it would make perfect sense to take care of those issues before they cost you the sale.


As the seller you may be part of the Home Inspection, taking notes along the way to note some of the things you may be able to complete yourself before calling in a qualified contractor of your choice to complete any of the defects found.


Repair the defects that where noted on during the Home Inspection, and take care of them before the report is generated we will revise the home Inspection before it is published.


Prepping for the sale of your home may help realistically price your house, as well as asking a high price because you have addressed some existing problems that may have come up later.


Appearance is one of the key factors in what a person makes a decision when the walk into the home


Nearly all of today's home purchase contracts include a home inspection contingency clause, which is a provision allowing the buyer to hire a professional home inspector to thoroughly evaluate of the house and determine if there are any issues with its structure or systems.. Once a purchase contract has been signed, the buyer can book a professional inspector of their choosing, whom they may or may not accompany during the two- to three-hour inspection. It may say there, may be defects greater than $1,500.00 leaving the buyer to back out of the deal. 


Most typical home inspection includes a check of a house's structural and mechanical condition but can also encompass tests for radon gas, detection of wood-destroying insects and other services requested by the buyer
According to ASHI, the ten critical areas for inspection during the process are the structure, exterior, roofing system, plumbing system, electrical system, heating system, air conditioning system, interior, insulation and ventilation, and fireplaces.


However: when the home is clean, and only showing normal adjustments on a door or a window, this is a typical item found in most homes, this report may be that selling tool. When a Buyer is intrigued about a home they are looking to buy, a main reservation is wondering about the condition of the home. Seeing the report on your web site listing, may produce a phone call for more info instead of clicking to the next ad . It's a great sales tool if your home checks out! And if your home needs repairs, then why not fix them on your terms and not the Buyers. After all, it is still your home.


Home Inspection reveal: 
The home inspection should reveal the condition of the home at the time it was inspected. Components and materials age and can fail at any time. There is no warranty or guarantee and components may fail regardless of whether or not a home inspection was performed with the Seller or the Buyer. If the listing ages before the buyer comes along, the buyer can elect to have a fresh inspection at the normal cost. A re-inspect is only to inspect any items that were repaired. In any inspection report it may say, there may be defects greater than $1,500.00. At this point a buyer may in fact back out of the deal, or start to negotiate with you.
