Presale Inspections

Presale Inspections

People often live in their home for years, even decades and are absolutely certain they know their house and all its flaws; this is seldom true in our experience.

Inspection Overview

A presale inspection can protect the seller from serious problems that result from non-disclosure.

Knowing the condition of the home prior to marketing gives the seller an opportunity to address certain repair issues in the way they choose, and to hire the contractors of their choice providing legitimate receipts for services or repairs.

When the seller has an accurate and unbiased assessment of the home and its condition they are more likely to price it effectively and receive realistic offers.

Why get a presale inspection?

A pre-sale home inspection best serve the interests of all parties involved, but particularly benefits the “Seller”.

  • Seller Has More Leverage
  • Fewer Surprises
  • Less Litigation
  • Less re-negotiations
  • Higher Sales price

Foreclosed Properties

Foreclosed Properties

The inspection is conducted by one of our professional staff who have years of experience.

Inspection Overview

It is extremely important when considering purchasing a foreclosed property that a professional inspection be performed to the highest degree.

The foreclosed property will be offered for sale in an “As Is” condition, this means what you see is what you get including all the hidden defects and damage.

If you purchase a foreclosed property without a home inspection you will assume all the risk and liability when closing the deal.
