Seller Information

More and more people are choosing to have a pre-listing home inspection in order to avoid the problems of killing the deal with surprises just before the sale goes through. When you’re selling your home or commercial property, you don’t want any surprises. Eventually, a buyer will request a professional inspection, so you might as well know ahead of time what they are going to find by getting there first. Our slogan is “We see what you don’t see!” That is our guarantee that we have thoroughly checked every inch of the property, from the roof to the foundation. A pre-listing inspection gets you to contract faster, and ensures that there are no nasty deal-defeating defects at the closing table. We give you the assurance that your home or business is top condition for sale.

What does a pre-listing inspection cover?

Our inspection takes between one to three hours, depending on the size of the house and its amenities. We check and document our findings in each of the following areas:

  • Roof
  • Structural & Mechanical
  • Electrical System
  • Plumbing
  • Appliances
  • Heating and Air Conditioning
  • Windows and Doors
  • Pool & Sprinkler Pump
  • Mold
  • Termite

How will a pre-listing inspection benefit me?

A simple answer is that a pre-inspection can help you to set your sale price at what you deserve for your major investment. Also, buyers are terrified of roof, structural problems, and defects in electrical, plumbing and A/C systems. When you are assured that your property is free from defects, whether hidden or visible, sharing the inspection report with the prospective buyer also gives the assurance and willingness to commit to the deal.

Why can’t I wait for the buyer to do the inspection?

You can, but by then the buyer has seen the report. Seeing these irregular defects listed below will likely send the buyer in another direction, far away from your home:

  • BURNT ALUMINUM WIRING
  • OVER FUSING--DIRECT TAP
  • FIRE HAZARD
  • HAZARD CONDITIONS EXIST
  • POOR GROUND
  • PLUMBING PIPE CORROSION
  • IMPROPER P-TRAP
  • SHOWER PAN LEAKS
  • AC CAPACITY INSUFFICIENT
  • UNUSUAL CRACKS
  • SAGGING
  • SIGNS OF MOVEMENT
  • DETERIORATED ROOF COVERING
  • LEAKS
  • ROOF LIFE AT / NEARING END OF LIFE EXPECTANCY
  • MOISTURE STAINS
  • MOLD

The best time to make repairs is before the house is advertised or listed, so you can select licensed and experienced contractors yourself to do the repairs, and not have to negotiate your price downwards because the buyer(s) has been armed with a seemingly scary inspection report. Once the repairs have been done, we issue an updated report at minimal or no cost.

KRC Home Inspection Company specializes in this type in inspection. We can enhance your profits and make selling your home a pleasurable experience.
