PreListing Inspection

Move-In Certified

Are you selling your home?

Here are some advantages of having thorough PreListing inspection before you list it:

There are a number of benefits of having a prelisting inspection done prior to putting your home on the market. First, it may prompt the buyer to waive his own inspection contingency. Which also means you won’t be in for any surprises. This is huge, because a buyer inspection can be a headache for a seller, especially in todays market. Another benefit is that you can schedule your inspection at your own convenience, rather than accommodate a buyer and his inspector. Time is valuable, especially when you are ready to sell. You also can assist your inspector during the inspection, which is something not normally done during a buyer’s inspection.
