A certified professional home inspector from HOME INSPECTIONS 4U inspects the house before it is listed for sale. The inspection can be scheduled at seller’s convenience with little effort on Realtor’s part. The Seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something that is not typically done during a buyer’s inspection. This can streamline the inspection process and give a Seller confidence in the condition of the home they put for sale. The Seller pays for the inspection however the inspection is intended for the benefits of potential buyers.

· The Seller will have the opportunity to correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is made public.
