What is a Pre-Listing Home Inspection?
A Pre-Listing Inspection reports on the overall status of your existing home to help you better prepare for listing and avoid unforeseen surprises. Knowing the current condition of your home will allow you a chance to make repairs if necessary to maximize the value of your property and to inform prospective buyers so that a smooth transaction can occur.
At Onega Inspection Services, each of our residential inspections abides by the Standards of Practice as stated by The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). This means that we fully accept the role of Home Inspector only and do not advocate non-inspection related services, such as contracting or remediation, as this would be a conflict of interest and interfere with our ability to provide a entirely unbiased assessment of your home.
After your inspection is finished we compile an easy to understand, highly detailed report complete with pictures, videos and informational links, all tailored to educate you, the homebuyer, about your prospective new home. This report is ready within 24 hours upon the completion of your home inspection.
The information gained from a professional home inspection will be useful in pricing your home. Having an inspection report ready for the buyer to review before any negotiations take place can eliminate last minute surprises for the buyer and yourself, aiding to a streamlined real estate transaction.
