A home is probably the largest purchase you will ever make, so it is important to understand the condition of your investment. I will provide a non-invasive examination of the home’s accessible structure, systems
and components. I am trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which areas require immediate attention. While a home inspection is not a prediction of future conditions and cannot reveal every concern that exists (or ever could exist), it will significantly reduce your anxiety by supplying you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.
Seller's Pre-Listing Inspection
Eventually, your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. Let me inspect it before you even list it. A pre-listing inspection informs you of any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates, show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith, avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home pre-inspected now. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first.
Note: Copies of the inspection report, along with receipts for any repairs, should be made available to potential buyers.
