• 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 make 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.
  • Removes over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.
  • The report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home

The report provides an accurate third-party view of the condition of the home that the new owner most likely doesn’t know much about.

Problems can be corrected, or at least acknowledged, prior to selling the property.
The report might assist in acquiring financing.


A RedBeard Inspections pre-listing home inspection will provide a thorough inspection on the physical structure as well as each of the home’s major systems and provide a detailed report and summary. It provides you with comprehensive information on the current condition of your home and includes recommendations for property repairs and enhancements to improve the home’s value and marketability. You can work with your real estate agent to either decide which areas to improve before putting the house on the market, or to adjust the sale price to reflect any costs of repairs that would be revealed in a home inspection performed later by a potential home buyer during the contingency process. And if you’ve maintained and updated your home over the years, a pre-listing home inspection report serves as a valuable sales tool documenting the attention to detail and care you’ve taken in protecting your investment.
