Pre-Listing Home Inspections

Opting for a pre-listing (or "home seller")  inspection before putting your home on the market can help your house not only sell faster but also save you money. Pre-listing inspections also alert you to areas of your home to address before they become deal breakers for potential buyers. With a home seller’s inspection, you won’t be taken by surprise by a major issue prior to selling your home. A thorough inspection report by Onega & Sons Inspection Services included in your home’s disclosure documents can improve your bargaining power while letting prospective buyers know you’ve done your homework.
