Pre-Purchase Inspection – INSPECT BEFORE Selling Your Home
Home Inspections aren’t just for buyers anymore! In the last several years we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of inspections performed for the seller rather than the buyer in the form of a “pre-listing” or “Seller‘s Inspection.”
Why inspect before you sell?
Before putting your house on the market, a consultation with a professional home inspector can yield significant benefits that helps you to:
- reduce lost sales
- increase the asking and/or final sales price
- reduce time on the market for the listing
- stop unreasonable requests of buyers
- disclose the information rather than repair or replace
- ensure proper disclosure and preventing post-closing litigation
- avoid costly delays and hidden surprises
- build trust with potential buyers by disclosing the report
Sellers’ inspections are beneficial for both the buyer and the seller. The electronic report is a comprehensive analysis of over 400 items in the home, and includes photos and technical illustrations to ensure clarity on all issues. There are also marketing materials available to further help with the sale of the home and provide a more aesthetically pleasing breakdown of the property to potential buyers.
New Construction Inspections
New construction inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder’s Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder’s policy. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be distributed to you.
Pre-Warranty Expiration Inspections
Warranty inspections are performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builder Warranty. The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed. You will be presented with a completed report at the end of the inspection along with digital photos taken as needed for inaccessible areas.
