Residential Home Buyer's Inspection
This inspection is intended to give the prospective seller a full report on the current conditions of his/her home. This report prevents the seller from being caught off guard with potential problems and repairs that may be found by the buyer's inspector. This knowledge will allow the seller to make repairs on his/her own time frame or to disclose the issues prior to the buyer's inspection. This type of inspection is becoming more and more popular. Ask your prospective listing agent if a Pre-List Inspection is right for your situation.
