Pre-Listing Consultation

Pre-listing consultations or Sellers Inspections are becoming more popular throughout the Puget Sound area.  Show potential buyers that your home is ready for them to MOVE IN!  A pre-listing consultation of your home will allow you to address any potential issues ahead of time.  Minimize market time by correcting problems, adjusting your sales price or provide the information necessary to disclose the “as is” condition of your home.  Avoid prolonging the sale to wait for repairs and / or being forced to reduce your sales price. Eliminate “repairs” as a negotiating tool for your buyers.

  • You can schedule the inspection at your convenience.
  • The inspection report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion from a licensed home inspector to offer to potential buyers.
  • The inspection will alert you to any items of immediate personal concern.
  • The report can help you realistically price the home if problems exist.
  • The report can help you substantiate a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or have been corrected.
  • Problems revealed ahead of time give you time to shop for competitive contractors, and either make repairs – making the home show better, or attach repair estimates removing over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.
  • The home inspection report can be used as a marketing tool.
  • The report might relieve a prospective buyer’s unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.
  • A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
  • The report might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
  • The report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
