Features & Benefits

An inspection gives the client an understanding of the house’s  condition, good and bad. Education is enpowerment, and helps to comfort doubts and  eliminate surprises.  Buyers know what they can expect, budget for and better research contactors and materials.


Seller’s Pre-Listing Inspection
It allows you to evaluate your house through the eyes of an objective third party.  How will a prospective buyer see your home?  How can you maximize that critical first impression? It helps you to set the price for your house realistically and gives you the ability to maximize the sale price. So many homes do not sell simply because the owner has no objective way of knowing what it is really worth to a potential buyer

It permits you to make some, or all, of the needed repairs ahead of time so that defects won't become negotiating stumbling blocks later. You will have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if qualified, without  having to scramble to meet a purchase contract imposed time frame.
It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency

It may alert you of items of immediate personal concern, such as asbestos, or active termite infestation. It will relieve the prospective buyer's concerns and suspicions

It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement
