When selling your home many issues can arise. It is important to be prepared. A Pre-Listing Home Inspection will identify and help you prioritize deficiencies, safety issues and maintenance items with your home. This allows you to decide what needs to be corrected well before any potential buyers look at your property. This can decrease the need for costly re-negotiations and time on the market which helps maintain the value of your property. A typical home inspection takes between 3-4 hours depending on the size, age, and condition of the home. The report is easy to navigate and will contain clear digital images, illustrations, recommendations and timelines. All clients are welcome to be present and follow the inspector for the duration of the inspection or to meet up near the end of the inspection for a summary and walk through.
