What is a seller's inspection?
Pre-listing inspections, sometimes referred to as seller’s inspections, are initiated by the property owner prior to listing the property. A seller’s inspection is used to find unknown defects and to prevent possible surprises for the home owner when he or she sells the property. Often, seller’s are blindsided by unknown and expensive problems discovered by the buyer’s inspector. With a pre-listing inspection, the seller has peace of mind going forward in the real estate transaction and is able to accurately represent the condition of the home, limiting potential liability.
