There is no such thing as a perfect house, subsequently, all homes have room for improvement. A pre-listing inspection identifies these areas and gives you the option to fix any conditions identified prior to listing your home. This takes those items off the table as a negotiating point against you.

Disclosing the condition of the home allows you to reflect its condition in the listing price, rather than have to negotiate again later when the issues are discovered in any subsequent inspection.

We will provide a visual inspection of the homes various systems, including interior and exterior components.

Interior systems that we check include; electrical, heating, air conditioning, ventilation, plumbing, insulation, flooring, ceiling and wall finishes, windows and doors.

As with the outside of the home, the interior inspection is visual in nature, meaning that the inspector will not be able to see behind walls or under the floor.

A home inspection does not include appraisals, exact quotes for any repairs, or the pointing out of non-compliance with building code or regional bylaw requirements.

Your home inspection is intended to help you make an informed decision about buying a particular home and is not to be mistaken as a warranty on the house.
