A standard clause in any purchase
Once you’ve decided to sell your home we highly recommend you hire a professional home inspector to do a ‘pre-inspection’. Because almost all buyers request home inspections before closing any deal, we think that taking the initiative to do a pre-inspection is always a good idea. A pre-inspection removes any doubt the buyer may have about the condition of your home and what repairs might be needed in the next few years.
The process is very easy. A home inspector will go through a checklist and will provide you with a report of the findings of the age, condition, and gaps between current equipment and building codes.
- Plumbing and electrical
- HVAC systems
- Overall integrity
- Insulation and potential moisture
- Mould and infestation issues
Before inspection day
- Ready your home the way you would for a showing before the inspector arrives
- Clear space against basement walls, so they can be inspected for damages and cracks
- Make sure both the garage and the attic are accessible
- Have your renovation and repair documents ready for review
- If you’re not currently living in the home, make sure all utilities are still connected
