A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. I check:
Using the notes compiled on the condition and operation of the areas inspected, a complete report is put together and emailed directly to you.
New construction inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk-through with the Builder.
The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk-through. This will ensure that most, if not all, last-minute items have been completed.

Listing inspections can help determine the condition of a home and help determine its current value. Many sales are canceled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. It may look great but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner's knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing it on the market may identify concerns that the owner can either repair or disclose at the time of the sale.
Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons why the owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often produce a higher net sales price for the owner.
