Advantages of selling a home that has been Pre-Inspected.


A Pre-Listing Inspection of your home before it is put on the market is a smart investment and will make your home stand out to potential buyers in a competitive marketplace. A  Pre-Listing Inspection from Hemlock Homes Inspection Services will identify problems with a home before those problems can become a deal breaker.

The Pre-Inspection Program is a unique home seller friendly program specifically designed to avoid inspection issues that can delay the closing process, or worse, prevent a buyer from even making an offer. The program protects the home seller’s property as well as their bottom line. We think having a pre-inspection performed on a house before it’s put on the market – or while it’s on the market – is not only a wise decision, it’s one of the easiest decisions you’ll make in selling your home.​​

  • The seller can have a Hemlock Homes inspector inspect the home properly before the buyer's inspector arrives.

  • The seller can schedule the inspections at the seller's convenience.

  • It might alert the seller of any items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.

  • The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's inspection.

  • The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.

  • The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.

  • A seller inspection reveals problems ahead of time which:

       - Might help the home show better.

       - Gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.

       - Permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.

  • The report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.

  • The report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential buyers.

  • A seller inspection permits a clean home inspection report to be used as a marketing tool.

  • Pre-Inspected yard signs attract potential buyers. 

  • A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.

  • The report might relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.

  • A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour renegotiations.

  • The report might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.

  • The deal is less likely to fall apart as they can when a buyer’s inspection unexpectedly reveals problems last minute.


Advantages of buying a home that has been Pre-Inspected.

  • The report provides a more accurate, third-party view of the condition of the home prior to making an offer. 

  • A seller inspection eliminates surprise defects. 

  • Problems are corrected or at least acknowledged prior to making an offer on the home. 

  • A seller inspection reduces the need for negotiations and 11th-hour renegotiations. 

  • The report might assist in acquiring financing. 

  • A seller inspection allows the buyer to sweeten the offer without increasing the offering price by waiving inspections.
