Pre-listing Home Inspections

Accelerate the closing on your home!

Why have an inspection before listing your home?


Better decisions

Your inspection report can give you the information you need to make an informed decision on improvements you should make prior to listing.

Attract serious buyers

Providing a copy of the inspection report to prospective buyers helps to deter those looky-loos who don’t have any real intention of buying while attracting the right kind of buyer who is serious about making an offer.

Reduce negotiations

Realtors know that negotiations that occur after a buyer’s home inspection are common and can add serious delays to the schedule. Providing a report from a professional inspector up front often reduces or eliminates post-inspection negotiations.

We’re “Infrared Certified” by InterNACHI, the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, who holds us to the highest standards in the industry.
