FAQs

FOR BUYERS:

As a buyer, wouldn’t I want my own home inspection?

If you wish to have an independent inspection conducted, you are free to do so. However, we believe that with our 30 years of quality service, professional inspectors, and exceptional reporting, you may not require that.

FOR SELLERS:

Why are you offering the pre-listing inspection report to anyone who is interested in purchasing the home at no cost?

We require that you as the seller grant us consent to post your report on this site to allow your prospective buyers to view the report. We will not upload the report without your consent.

We’re taking the chance that we can develop some interest in the home that you’re selling and are limiting the number of people who physically enter your home at this time. By providing potential buyers with as much information as possible online you ensure that only the most serious home buyers enter your home.

What is the value of a home inspection to me, as a seller?

As a seller, you can help prospective homebuyers feel more confident about their home purchase decision by having your listing inspected. By having an inspection performed before you sell the home, you can plan ahead for any repairs or negotiate the selling price. This will make the buyer more confident in the purchase and keep pre-closing problems from hassling both parties.
