Pre-Listing Home Inspections
Creating Confidence in Home Selling
Sell Your Home Faster, and For More Money!
Are you a home seller looking to maximize your profits and avoid any last-minute negotiations? A pre-listing inspection is the perfect solution! It’s an essential step for anyone who wants to make sure their property sells quickly, and for more money.
Pre-listing inspections help sellers eliminate conditional offers or surprise issues with negotiations that can arise during the sale process. With a pre-listing inspection, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that everything has been addressed before putting your home on the market.
By having a pre-listing inspection, you can also be proactive in addressing any issues that are discovered. This will save you time and money as opposed to waiting for an offer from potential buyers who could use the information against you.
Get a Detailed Report of Your Property
Our professional home inspectors will provide a detailed report on the condition of your property within 24 hours, which will help give prospective buyers confidence in their purchase decision.
Complete Repairs on Your Terms
Additionally, if any repairs or maintenance needs to be done, it can be completed before listing your property so there are no surprises down the road.
Most importantly, a pre-listing inspection provides sellers with more control over negotiations since they know exactly what issues need to be addressed and can fix them on their terms. This helps eliminate last minute haggling between buyers and sellers when trying to come up with an agreement that works for both parties.
Preparing Your Home To Be Inspected
When you put your home up for sale it understandably receives considerable exposure from interested buyers. But given the current conditions of the real estate market, the competition is significantly difficult and potential buyers always have hundreds of properties to choose from.
As such, if they find even a single issue in your home, they are likely to be driven away. What can you do in this regard?
Have it pre-inspected! This will allow you to make repairs at a reasonable cost, and help avoid the dreaded eleventh hour negotiations.

Frequently Asked Pre-Listing Inspection Questions
Normally, the pre-listing inspection is performed before the home is listed on the market. This allows prospective buyers to see the condition of the home prior to negotiations being made. Having the inspection performed after negotiations can cause all kinds of issues on the part of the buyer, so it’s easy to see how this kind of inspection can benefit everyone involved.
That depends on the size of the home, the age of the home, and how many things are being found a good rule of thumb is to allow at least three hours.
Yes, we encourage everyone involved to be present during a home inspection, or mold inspection. Not only will we be investigating the current condition of the home but will also be giving many tips on how to maintain the home.
We tend to book out between 5 and 10 days however we know time is a factor and the inspection needs to be done sooner than that. In those cases we do everything possible to fit your inspection in, as long as it doesn’t make it so the inspector will have to rush anyone’s inspection.
What a Great Question! In general a home inspection does not determine the value of the home. We recommend reading our blog What is The Difference Between a Home Inspection and an Appraisal.
The benefits are numerous. Being upfront about the condition of the home will help to eliminate conditional offers or issues with negotiations, resulting in the seller having to sell the home more than once because the buyer has changed their mind. Everything is agreed upon before the listing is published and the home goes on the market, which minimizes the liability for all parties.
On top of this, if the home is found to be in better condition than originally thought, the price can reflect this. The buyer is also more likely to make an offer without their own inspection because one has already been performed, which can increase the speed at which the house is sold and changes hands. There will be no conflicting information making the transaction complicated—just peace of mind for everyone, and a smoother, quicker process where everyone wins.
If you’re selling your home, we highly recommend considering a pre-listing inspection to make your sale as quick and easy as possible.
