Pre-Listing Inspection ChicagoAre you ready to move out of your current home? Before putting it on the real estate market, you may want to consider having a Pre-Listing Inspection.  A pre-listing inspection is performed by a professional and certified property inspector who knows just what to look for to make sure that the home you are planning to sell is safe for others to live in. Our property inspectors are thorough and will spend time looking at every inch of the home.

Pre-listing Inspection Chicago is something that has been discussed in the property inspection and real estate business for many years. Resisted at first by nearly every real estate agent and seller this timing of having a property inspection done is beginning to gain traction. There are definitely positives and concerns with having your property inspected before listing it for sale.

The main advantage to a potential property seller for getting their property inspected is to be forewarned of potential buyer concerns. No one knows for certain what issues a buyer will be concerned with since buyers come from all sorts of backgrounds and handyman experience levels. Pre-Listing property Inspection Chicago gives the seller a heads up warning for what issues are present in the property. With this list, the seller can now decide which things to have repaired. The sellers with their listing real estate agents can decide which items from the report are more likely to be a concern for a property buyer. These items can range from serious foundation issues, electrical concerns in the electric panel to minor safety things like a lack of outlet covers to keep small fingers safe.

Lower repair costs is another advantage to the property seller who had their property pre-inspected. With the inspection completed and the list of repair items in hand, the seller has the advantage of not being under time pressures by a potential buyer to get things repaired fast and at top dollar. The owner of the property has time to either fix the issues themselves or find a handyman who is reasonably priced. Both of these options save the seller money.

An inspection of the property paid for by the seller or the listing agent providing information on the pre-sale condition of the property. This inspection could uncover issues that might otherwise compromise a sale and gives the seller the information they need to fix or correct issues before putting the property on the market.

Many property sellers are concerned that Pre Purchase Property Inspection Chicago will reveal flaws in their property that they will be obligated to disclose during a sale. In actuality, however, the majority of pre-listing inspections only turn up minor flaws in properties that can be easily corrected. In the rare case that a pre-listing inspection lists a major item to be repaired, it is important to keep in mind that the pre-purchase inspection that the potential buyer would pay for would discover the same problem. At that point, however, a buyer could use the information to walk away from the sale. In most cases, pre-listing inspections turn out to be a great selling point for the homeowner.

The inspector will give you the property inspection report with any concerns listed on it. Although the information is not provided to anyone else, it is still a good idea for you to review those concerns and fix anything that you possibly can. Even though it may cost you some money to fix certain problems within the property, you can end up earning that money back for your property when you finally do sell it. When potential buyers visit the property, the real estate agent you hire can be completely honest about the renovations and improvements you made, which easily increases the value of the property.


There is no reason to fear a property inspection. In many instances, there is nothing wrong with the property at all. However, it is good to know if a few improvements should be made, especially if you want to make a larger investment when you sell your property. Not only will you make more from the sale, but you will also rest well knowing the property is safe for its new owners.
