Pre-Purchase or Pre-Listing Home Inspection
Reduce the risk of costly surprises before you purchase your home, you should feel comfortable with the significant decisions you are making. Our inspections will provide you with a prioritized list of deficiencies, maintenance and safety issues, delivered in a clear and easy-to-understand inspection report. All reports include digital images, illustrations and articles for further education, plus information and recommendations for correcting any deficiencies. A home inspection will help buyers during negotiations, and can assist with acquiring financing and insurance. For sellers, a pre-listing inspection can identify and prioritize deficiencies so that modifications can be made before potential buyers see your property. By following the recommendations made in these reports, you can increase the value of your home, reduce the time it is on the market and avoid re-negotiations or deals collapsing during the sales process. Home inspection reports are delivered the same day by an emailed PDF (printed hard copies are available upon request). A typical home inspection duration is two to four hours depending on the size and age of the dwelling. Clients are welcome to join the inspector as he goes through the home, or coordinate to come near the end for a summary and walk through. We are always available to answer questions after the inspection. To learn more about what is and is not covered in a home inspection, view the Scope of Inspection.
