Pre-Listing Home Inspection for Sellers
A WIN pre-listing home inspection provides you with comprehensive information on the current condition of your home and includes recommendations for property repairs and enhancements to improve the home’s value and marketability. You can work with your real estate agent to either decide which areas to improve before putting the house on the market, or to adjust the sale price to reflect any costs of repairs that would be revealed in a home inspection performed later by a potential home buyer during the contingency process. And if you’ve maintained and updated your home over the years, a pre-listing home inspection report serves as a valuable sales tool documenting the attention to detail and care you’ve taken in protecting your investment.
WIN’s pre-listing home inspection includes over 300 items, from the foundation to the roof and all the major systems of the house – electrical, plumbing and heating/air conditioning. The inspection takes the home inspector between 2 and 2 1/2 hours depending on the size of the home.
Items inspected include:
- Basement or crawl space
- Interior and exterior walls
- Water heater
- Heating and air conditioning systems
- Electrical system
- Plumbing system and fixtures
- Porches and decks
- Fireplace and exterior chimney
