When putting your house on the market, it's beneficial to become aware of the home's condition and any deficiencies, well before the buyer's inspector comes through. Insight's Pre-Sale Walk-through will alert you to correct deficiencies or obtain quotes for failing systems before listing your home. Limit your risk of surprises and receive the highest value by putting your home's 'best foot forward'.
WHAT DO WE LOOK AT?
Our whole-house approach will look at all the major systems and components, especially the roof, attic, exterior moisture control, electrical, heating/cooling systems, and more. The goal is to alert you to what the buyer's inspector will make issues of.
WHAT SETS US APART FROM OTHER HOME INSPECTORS?
Insight's inspectors are thorough, honest, and want you to understand the condition of the home you are buying. Our inspectors are experienced building analysts and energy raters, a level of evaluation beyond that of a typical IL licensed home inspector, and regularly evaluate high performance and Energy Star new homes. Our inspectors will provide you with the most comprehensive home insight in the Chicago area.
DO YOU PROVIDE A REPORT?
No, we provide you a copy of all pictures taken and review them with you, while you take notes. We explain what the issues are and recommend measures to be taken. We can also assist you in prioritizing the 'To Do' list. If you need a full written report, ask for a Home Inspection.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
1.5-2.5 hours, depending on the size of the home.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
$175 for the first hour, $100 for every hour after that.
DO YOU PROVIDE ANY OF THE CONTRACTOR SERVICES?
No, it would be a conflict of interest. We can provide you with a list of trusted contractors if you need recommendations.
