Pre-Listing Inspection

A Pre-Listing Inspection is a proven way to help differentiate your listing and attain your maximum selling price.

Performed before putting your property on the market, the Pre-listing Inspection provides you with full details of any current or potential problems areas with your property. Armed with this information, you have the option to:

  • Resolve issues before starting your listing
  • Show your property in the best possible condition
  • Increase the marketability of the listing
  • Drive to your maximum selling price

Selling a property can be a very intense and emotional experience. Performing a pre-listing inspection is an important way to making this a more predictable process.

Reduce possible delays in the selling process

The Pre-Listing Inspection is a check-point to validate your asking price before listing, and decide on a strategy for any recommended repairs.

Make it easy for a buyer to estimate repair costs

If you choose not to perform a recommended repair, providing a contractor estimate reduces the “unknowns” for the buyer, and provides them with an immediate cost that can be validated before preparing an offer.
