Types of Inspections
A pre-purchase inspection is typically requested by the people interested in purchasing the house. Its purpose is to identify any conditions which could influence the purchaser’s decision whether or not to purchase the house. After receiving the inspection report, the purchaser can either request that the homeowner address some or all of the conditions found, negotiate a new price for the house, decide to purchase or not to purchase the property.
A pre-purchase inspection is also an excellent way to learn more about things that may need to be addressed in the future, about regular house maintenance items and about the house in general.
A pre-listing inspection is typically requested by the homeowner or a real estate agent. Its purpose is to identify any condition with the house which need to be addressed prior to putting the house up for sale. After receiving the inspection report, the home owner can then address any conditions found during the inspection. The house will then be more presentable, can be listed for a higher value and could be easier to sell.
