Prelisting Home Inspection

Becoming quite the “fad”, home sellers are making a smart choice and having a home inspection performed prior to putting their home on the market. Also referred to as a “seller’s inspection”, these pre-listing home inspections have a number of advantages if you are trying to do that “extra thing” to sell your home.

A prelisting inspection includes all of the items that a standard home inspection comes with, including a pest and dryrot inspection. To see what this home inspection looks like, click here to visit our main Home Inspection page.


Eliminate the Element of Surprise with a Pre-listing Home Inspection
While your potential buyer is probably, and should, have a home inspector take a look at your house as well, our home inspection report will help eliminate the element of surprise for you—you should know what is coming.


Maximize Your Profits with a Pre-listing Home Inspection
Why wait to pay the buyers more money after they have the home inspection? Should you decide to, you can fix some or all of the items we note of on the home inspection and press the full market price for your home!


Sell Your Home Faster with a Pre-listing Home Inspection
Many Realtors across the country are noting of the potential to sell homes faster after having a pre-listing inspection performed.
