The “Inspect to Sell” inspection package includes inspections of Roofing, Plumbing & Electrical Systems, Air Conditioning Systems, Kitchen Appliances, Structural Components and Termite/W.D.O. Infestations (additional inspections available upon request).
The “Inspect to Sell” inspection package actually consists of three separate visits to the property.
- The pintail inspection at time of listing, before any prospective buyer enters the picture.
- A second inspection to update the initial inspection findings, with the buyer present, after the sales contract has been signed.
- Re-certification of the Roofing and/or Termite Infestation reports, if either or both are required by the buyer’s mortgage lender.
All This for One Fee Payable at Closing.
“Inspect to Sell”, when used correctly, will support you, the seller, from the moment you list until after you close. Receive a fair price, limit costs associated with the transaction and avoid costly surprises…“Inspect to Sell”.
