Pre-lisiting Inspections

Home sellers wishing to maximize the opportunity for multiple offers will in many cases undertake to do a pre-listing inspection. These inspections frequently offer home buyers enough comfort to drop the inspection condition from their offer.

A pre-listing inspection is essentially the same as a our standard inspection except that an additional scanned copy of the report is provided, in PDF format, suitable for printing, emailing or attaching as a Schedule B item on the listing.

Truly a pleasure meeting with you, Rob, and thank you for your patience and for sharing your breadth of knowledge with me. I certainly learned much in terms of important issues – and I feel more confident with the sale of my house.
The pre-list summary is both clearly informative and descriptive. I realize this report demanded time and I am so appreciative – looks great! – and fair (pics turned out well!). I know this information will provide the buyer confidence as well.
Thanks again and best wishes,
– Michelle

Benefits of a pre-listing inspection include:

  • A potentially faster sale.
  • A potentially higher selling price.
  • Mitigating the likelihood of potential buyers hiring their own inspector.
  • Preparing buyers ahead of time for what their own inspector may find, should they choose to hire one anyway, thereby limiting renegotiation potential.
  • The option to make improvements or to reflect home conditions in the selling price.
  • An optional summary (which reduces the cost of the actual inspection).
  • The ability to transfer ownership* of the report to a purchaser.
HomeCore remains available to interested parties prior to the offer date to answer telephone queries about the property inspected.


Note: An on-site walk-through and review of the report is available to the buyer of the property for a fee of $275.00. This service allows for the transfer of ownership of the report from the seller to the buyer.
