WHAT IS A PRE-LISTING INSPECTION?
A pre-listing inspection is basically the same service as a home inspection. The difference is that the inspection is performed for the home owner, instead of the person buying the home. It is a non-invasive visual examination of the accessible areas of a home. During a home inspection, the home is visually inspected for functional and safety issues.
During a pre-listing inspection, the home inspector will inspect the:
Structure: Foundation, Walls, Flooring, and Roof
Roof: Coverings, Flashings, and Vents
Exterior: Siding, Windows, flashing, and grading
Interior: Appliances, Floors, Walls, Ceilings, Stairs, Handrails, etc.
Electrical: Service Entrance Conductors, Panels, Wiring, and Outlets/Fixtures
Plumbing: Main Valve, Distribution Piping, Water Heater, Drainage, and Faucets
HVAC: Heating & Cooling Source, Venting, Distribution, etc.
Insulation: Basement, Crawlspace, & Attic
Ventilation: Crawlspace and Attic
Garage: Doors, Sensors, Floor, Walls, and Ceilings.
Fireplace(s): Clearances, Damper Doors, and Energy Source
Effortlessly schedule the inspection online using our scheduler! Once the schedule request is sent in, we will send you a confirmation email/text if that date & time works for us.
The home inspector will arrive 15 minutes early to the home and inspect it! You can choose to be there during the whole inspection if you would like. We prefer that you arrive towards the end so that we can walk through and discuss the different issues we found.
The report will be sent within 24 hours (we strive to send it that same day if possible). You may contact us if there are any questions about certain items. After the RE-10 (repair request for seller) is sent and the repairs are made, we suggest considering scheduling a RE-INSPECTION! ... It's FREE!
