Pre-Sale or Pre-Listing Inspections are becoming more common. This type of inspection is typically done before a seller puts their house on the market. It is similar to a Pre-Purchase Inspection in that it looks at the overall condition of the house, inspecting for and prioritizing possible problems, deficiencies or areas of concern that could be found by a potential buyer’s inspector. Such repairs or replacements can then be undertaken before the house is put up for sale, thereby making the selling process easier.
A Pre-Listing Inspection can also be an opportunity for existing homeowners to have a qualified, independent professional go through their house, putting together a To-Do list of repairs, maintenance, replacements and upgrades, not for the purpose of selling the house but rather to maintain the house in the best possible condition.
The inspection includes a comprehensive, easy to read electronic report with dozens of colour photographs, illustrations and links to relevant reference materials.
