Looks aren’t Everything!
When you walk through a house as a potential buyer, you’re likely just looking at things like the stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen, the open concept living area, and the updated hall bathroom. Those things may be aesthetically pleasing, but they’re not going to tell you the whole story of your house and if it’s in decent shape.
Before you close on a house, you’ll need to hire a Home Inspector to look at the structure and stability of your new home and ensure that there are no serious issues hiding behind the surface.
It’s important to remember that we as a Home Inspection company are not there to tell you how beautiful everything is or how the house flows or even about the school district. We’re there to educate you on the nuts and bolts and the current condition of the house.
Typically, you will order an inspection once you have an offer accepted, but it may also occur before if you choose to conduct a pre-inspection in a very competitive market. The inspection is such an integral part of the home buying process that often the offer is contingent on how the inspection goes.
What to Do During the Inspection
Once you’ve had an offer accepted you want to hire an inspector right away. In fact, we recommend that even speak to us before you put in an offer.
On inspection day, we highly recommend that you be at the house during the inspection so that we can go through everything step by step.
We know that not everyone can take off work, therefore just like your Real Estate professional we work weekends! If you are still not able to attend the entire inspection we recommend that you at least try to be present at the end of the inspection, because we like to wrap up and summarize what’s been seen to help you better understand the digital home inspection report that will be provided to you within 24 hours after the completion of the inspection.
During the inspection we recommend you follow us around so that we can give you real time updates on what we’re seeing. If you can't no worries we will still provide everything we observe in our written report.
After the inspection has been completed which will typically take 2-3 hours depending on the size and condition of the home, we will go over the details with you and then give you a professionally prepared computer generated digital report within 24 Hours!

Seller's Pre-Listing Inspection
Sell Your Existing Home For More Money, In Less Time, With Less Hassle!
Performing a Pre-Listing Inspection with Bulletproof Home Inspection can help you do just that. Making the decision to sell your home is a huge step for most homeowners. But once the decision is made to sell, then making your home marketable should be your number one goal! We understand the emotional attachment you have to your home but you must be realistic about the home as well. No home is perfect and as soon as you realize that you are on your way to making your home more marketable. Remember, making your home the most marketable should be your number one goal!
Potential home buyers want to purchase a home that is in tip-top shape, no matter the age of the home. That’s why having a Pre-Listing Inspection makes complete sense.
Having a home inspection before you put your house on the market will allow you to understand any current or potential problem areas with the home that can be resolved before the buyers arrive. Therefore, your home will be in better condition for viewing, making it more marketable and this will help you attain the maximum selling price for the home.
No Surprises or Deal Breakers Here!
Resolving problems prior to the buyer’s inspection will save you money in two other ways as well. First, when you know what needs to be repaired in advance of the sale you can obtain multiple bids for the work that needs to be done and select the best contractor at the best price. Secondly, the work can be done by the contractor in a time frame that fits his schedule as well thereby avoiding the “Rush Charges” to get the work completed.
Empathy, imagine you are in their shoes and your inspector finds a leaky roof, water in the crawlspace or even worse …RATS in the attic or crawlspace!!! What would you do? Run Away???
Finally, there is one secret all Sellers need to know. Buyers make their decision to purchase a home based on emotion and justify that decision with logic. Another thing is equally true, buyer’s can fall out of love with a home just as quickly as the fell in love it. So why let the Buyer’s Inspector develop a long list of items needing repair thereby jeopardizing your sale? Making the repairs in advance of the sale will save you tons of frustration and disappointment! You may also find that disclosure will prevent you having to adjust your price since the buyers know what to expect going in. Simply put … the unknown or freshly discovered is far scarier than what is disclosed going in to the sales decision.
So let’s review the facts, having your home inspected before the first buyer shows up will help you to sell the home for more money, reduce the cost of the needed repairs, and minimize your frustration with the entire sales process. Where’s the down side to getting a Pre-Listing Inspection?
