Buyers Inspection (pre-purchase)

A home inspection is a primarily visual process, not technically exhaustive, where all of the items typically used within the home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, electrical outlets and main service panel inspected, water heaters inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems inspected. The inspector will run water at the sinks, tub(s), shower(s) and flush the toilet(s). All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. A detailed report will be delivered to you by email within 24 hrs (in most cases).

Seller Listing Inspection

Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. Some home sales may be hampered do to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. It may look great but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owners knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market, is an ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issues found in the inspection report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most benieficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing this up front and pricing the home based upon this disclosure will often times produce a higher net sale price for the owners.
