 What is a Seller's Inspection?

also known as Pre-Listing Inspections

What is This Type of Inspection?

A listing or pre-listing inspection is performed before or when a home is first put on the market, before a Buyer sees it.

This type of inspection provides a level of comfort to prospective Buyers through honest, upfront disclosure.​

It's everything a Buyer would hope to know about a house.​

What Are the Benefits to The Seller?

A Pre-Listing Inspection...

  • Helps Buyers feel immediately more comfortable with the property
  • Increases the Buyer’s perceived value of the home
  • Gives sellers the opportunity to eliminate certain defects before needing to disclose them to prospective Buyers
  • Allows time to make any necessary repairs in order to more effectively market the home in the most positive light
  • Reduces the likelihood that buyers will hire their own inspectors
  • Reduces the likelihood of costly surprises being found by a buyer’s inspector after the sellers thought they had a firm offer
  • Virtually eliminates emotionally and financially draining re-negotiations
  • Increases the likelihood that offers will turn into closings
  • Reduces the buyer’s negotiating leverage regarding existing property conditions
  • Helps sellers honestly disclose everything about their home, reducing liability for disclosure
  • Reduces chances of being sued by unhappy Buyers
  • Typically shortens the transaction process by 8 to 12 days by allowing buyers to write Purchase and Sale Agreements (RE-21’s) AND Inspection Contingency Notices (RE-10’s) both at the same time without needing to schedule time-consuming inspections that inevitably lead to further negotiations.
