I am so glad I decided on this company.  The home inspector knew his stuff, and he explained the inspection report in a way that was clear.  I was able to negotiate my purchase and saved a lot of money.  Thanks for everything.        -  Karla P., San Diego

Home Inspections for...sellers?

Although it is now common practice for home buyers in San Diego to get a home inspection on a home that they are planning to purchase, there are also many advantages for the current homeowner to have their home pre-inspected before putting it on the market.  Anything that a home seller can do to set themselves apart from other sellers is important and can mean that your home sells faster and for more money than your competitors.

A seller home inspection is a good business decision.

In this crazy market, one of the biggest mistakes that home sellers make is waiting for the buyer's home inspection to assess the condition of their home.  Did you know that one of the main reasons that home purchase transactions fall apart is due to defects and/or issues that are discovered during the course of the buyer's home inspection?  Why wait until the last minute to see what issues may come up in a buyer's inspection that may become stumbling blocks during your transaction?

Introducing the seller home inspection

Eventually your buyer is going to conduct an inspection of your home.  Get a jump on the process by conducting your own pre-listing inspection.  Conducting your own "pre-listing" or seller home inspection ahead of time puts you at a distinct advantage.

Benefits of a seller home inspection 

  • It allows you to select a qualified home inspector of your choice, rather than being at the mercy of the buyer's inspector.  Maybe the buyers home inspector is somehow affiliated with the buyer and could help make the transaction favorable for them.

  • It allows you to schedule the home inspection at your convenience.

  • It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical, unbiased third party.  Often a homeowner cannot see what is right in front of their eyes because they have lived in the home for so long.

  • It alerts you to any immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home.   

  • It permits you to make any necessary or desired repairs ahead of time, and at your pace, so that defects won't become negotiating stumbling blocks later.  

  • It may help your home to show better, after you have completed any necessary repairs or upgrades.

  • It helps you to price your home realistically, based on a true understanding of the condition of your home, and after repairs are made, may help capture a higher price!

  • It is the ultimate gesture of openness and forthrightness on your part, and may help to relieve prospective buyers concerns and suspicions.  

  • It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.
