For the buyer, an inspection will help you make an informed decision. It will familiarize you with the major systems of the home and how they operate. It will also provide you with the information you need for any maintenance or repairs your new purchase may require.
For the seller, a pre-listing inspection can detect previously unknown problems or potential upgrades that you wish to address prior to selling your home. By identifying problems that could stall a future offer or sale, it reduces the chance of surprise and complications of future offers. This benefits all parties for a smoother transaction. Even if repairs are required, we can make recommendations for improvements that could help speed up the sale.
