Frequently Asked Questions (Sellers)

What is a Pre-Listing / Pre-Sale inspection and why do I need one?

The simplest way to define a pre-listing inspection is to say that it is an inspection of the home and it's systems, HVAC, plumbing, structural, etc., that is done before the home goes on the market or before it is sold. This gives you, the seller, more control over how you want to handle any issues that arise from the inspection. The following video links explain in more detail. 

A good rule of thumb is to estimate around 16 cents per square foot. A 2,000 sf home would run about $320 (2000 x .16) or a 3,000 sf $480 (3000 x .16) This is an approximate estimated example, other factors may cause prices to change.

How much does a Home Inspection cost?
How long does it take?

It should take about 3 to 4 hours depending on the size of the home and the number of issues discovered.

Do I have to be there during the inspection?

No, it is important that you be there at the end of the inspection so that the inspector can go over any major issues that were found, if that is not possible a phone consultation can be done instead.
