Pre-Listing Inspection Services

Help Make Your Listing Easier to Sell

Because a home purchase is often the largest investment most people make, you can help prospective buyers gain peace of mind with a professional inspection by AmeriSpec. Complete home inspections also help sellers and buyers plan for repairs or alterations that could affect the sales price. An inspection by AmeriSpec will add confidence and peace of mind—on both sides of the deal—while reducing potential pre- and post-closing issues.

Back Up Your Listing with Real Evidence

The AmeriSpec Report is comprehensive, easy to read and covers more than 400 points examined by your AmeriSpec professional home inspector. It also contains a Seasonal Maintenance Checklist and a DIY Home Repair Manual. There’s no better way to confirm that your listing really is a dream home!

How Do I Choose the Right Home Inspector?

Choosing the right inspector is a critical first step. You’re right to look into the decision thoroughly and do your homework. When you’re selecting a qualified, local home inspection service to conduct a thorough inspection of your home, ask the following questions:

  • Fees may vary based on region, location, the home’s size and age, additional services provided or requested and other factors. Please be sure to ask which factors will affect the price of your professional home inspection.

  • The process usually takes two to three hours, depending on the home’s size, age, condition and additional services provided.

In addition to general inspections, we provide testing for radon, septic, water quality, carbon monoxide, pools, spas, pest inspections and many other services. Check with your local office for details, as local service offerings may vary.

  • Qualified, confident inspection companies like AmeriSpec will never hesitate to provide a sample report that proves their compliance with industry standards. Samples are often found on an inspector’s website.

  • Most AmeriSpec offices prepare reports within 48 hours of the inspection, and some even print the report onsite.

  • AmeriSpec offices operate on a full-time schedule and are able to schedule inspections five, six and sometimes even seven days a week. Your convenience is always a priority, so feel free to inquire.
