Make the process of selling your home faster, less stressful and more rewarding with a pre-listing home inspection.

Save Money, Maximize Your Return

While home inspections are typically used by home buyers, you — as the seller — also have a lot riding on this transaction. Renegotiations after an inspection may result in you needing to make repairs, a reduction in the price, or if more serious issues are discovered, revocation of the offer from the buyer.

Put yourself in a stronger position for negotiations, and maximize your sale price, by having your home inspected before listing it on the market. If you choose to make repairs before listing, you'll have plenty of time. Fix issues at your leisure, with no looming deadlines.

  • Avoid Surprises, Sell with Confidence

    Go into negotiations with more control and ensure a quicker, smoother transaction. Findings from a buyer's inspection can catch you off guard, just as it can the buyer. If that happens, then you'll be under pressure to correct the problem quickly or lower the price. If a major problem is discovered, or negotiations break down, then the transaction is in jeopardy. And when a deal falls through, no one wins.

We Respect Your Property, and Your Time

Many strangers will be entering your home during the selling process, some more respectful than others. You can rest assured that we respect your time and property as though it were our own. We strive to always be on time and take every precaution to avoid causing any damage to your property. By the time we are finished, it should be as though we were never even there.

We Give a Different Perspective

It's your home. You probably know it inside and out. However, you might underestimate or not even notice some issues. A home inspection is still incredibly helpful because a home inspector is trained to notice things that most people won't. Your home inspector also has a lot of experience to draw on when assessing any problems they encounter.

Although normally used for home buyers, pre-listing inspections are becoming more common.

Preparing for the Inspection

As the seller, there a few things you can do to prepare for the inspection. Being prepared will help the inspection go smoothly and increase your home's appeal to potential buyers.

  • Cleanup

    This may be stating the obvious, but it's imperative that your house is as clean as possible. Not only does this increase your home's appeal, but it also helps the inspector by making it easier to move around and access various areas of interest.

  • Utilities are Connected

    Utilities need to be connected so the inspector can test things like water flow, electrical outlets, water heaters, furnace, air conditioning, and so on. Without the utilities connected, the home inspector will have no choice but to either reschedule or suggest inspection by a specialist.

  • Appliances are Connected and Working

    Appliances that are not connected to water, power, oil, or gas cannot be turned on by the home inspector. All appliances should be working properly, and abandoned appliances should be removed.

  • Brush and Other Exterior Obstructions

    In the Winter, try to provide a path around your house. In the Summer, clear away any overgrowth or dead branches that come into contact with the home.

  • House Number

    This may seem silly, but make sure the house number is visible from the street. People are going to need to check out the house, so you'll want to make sure they can find it without any trouble.

Testimonials

  • " Roger was SOOO amazing! We are first time homebuyers so you can understand the stress of this entire process; but I can genuinely say that the inspection part was the easiest of it all. Everything went seamlessly, Roger came on very short notice and took care of the whole thing while we were out of town. Then he provided us with a very comprehensive report with pictures which made it so so easy for us. I highly HIGHLY recommend little creek home inspections! "

  • " Roger has made purchasing our new home incredibly easier. Not only did he identify ever major issue that needed to be repaired he showed me everything that he was talking about and took pictures with detailed explanations for our seller to understand what repairs need to be made. Without his willingness to inspect every inch of our potential home in the rain we would have purchased this home not knowing all of the major fixes needed. He spent 6 hours making sure that there were literally no stone left untouched. Grateful to have Little Creek on our team to help protect my future investment and make sure my family lives in a safe and fully functioning home.

    You need them to inspect your next home. "

He was available to come on short notice and spent an ample amount of time examining the property we are purchasing. His recommendations were solid and he has been available to reach to answer and explain any lingering questions. "
