Pre Listing Inspections are preformed for a home owner prior to listing the home for sale.  Most home buyers today have a home inspection performed prior to purchasing the home.  Potential buyers use these inspections to bargain on price.  As a seller, getting the best price for your home is possible if you use Certified Home & Property Inspection to perform Pre Listing Inspections.  This will allow you to resolve any unforeseen issues that may come up prior to negotiations by either fixing the issues or having them quoted by qualified professionals.

WE ALSO OFFERING MOVE-IN CERTIFIED HOME INSPECTIONS!

What are Pre Listing Inspections?

A Pre Listing Inspection by Certified Home & Property Inspection are third party, non-invasive, visual examinations of the accessible areas of a residential property which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components.  Home Inspections performed by Certified Home & Property Inspection meet and/or exceed the Standards of Practice (SOP) set forth by both The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI).

More simply put, Certified Home and Property Inspection inspects around and throughout a home (preferably with the client), making note and taking pictures of any defect(s), safety concern(s) and maintenance issues.  Certified Home & Property Inspection then creates a comprehensive but easy to read report including pictures and recommendations regarding these issues.

How long do inspections take?

Depending on the size and condition of the home, most home inspections take about three (3) hours.  At this point, the inspector will return to the office, type the report, review and deliver it to the client in PDF format via email.  Home inspection reports are typically delivered within twenty-four (24) hours.

For a Move-In Certified home inspection, Certified Home & Property Inspection will then allow the client time to address the issues found, if any, during the inspection.  Once the issues are addressed and the home meets “Move-In Certified” criteria, Certified Home & Property Inspection will then reinspect the home providing the client with a final inspection report.  This same report will be uploaded onto the Move-In Certified site, viewable to all potential buyers.  For more on Move-In Certified home inspections, contact us today.
