Pre-Listing Inspection

$300.00

*Getting your home inspected before your buyer does can streamline the sales process and help you avoid any unexpected surprises. What sellers don't realize is the home inspection is the place where most sales fall apart. A seller home inspection will allow you to get a clear picture about the state of your house, including any problems that may derail a sale. You will have a chance to address major issues, using your contractor, and the information you gain from the inspection will be useful in pricing your home. By getting most, or all of the problems taken care of you increase the chances of having a smooth and pleasant transaction.

  1. Reduce the stress of selling your home.
  2. Help with pricing your home correctly.
  3. Speed up the sales process.
  4. Allow you to make repairs on your terms and time table.
  5. Avoid the need for renegotiation.
  6. Help improve buyer confidence.
  7. Make your agent's job more effective.
Radon Testing

$75.00

Radioactive gas could cause health problems for yourself and your family for life. Stop the cycle before it begins, and call for an inspection on a previously owned home you're interested in. The cost of a one-day inspection is next to nothing compared to thousands of dollars of remediation, not to mention the priceless health and safety of your family.

Wood Destroying Pest Inspection

$50 - $100

A wood-destroying insect (WDI) inspection looks for indications of infestation of wood-destroying organisms that may exist in the house using a visual-only examination. The organisms applicable to NYS are carpenter ants, carpenter bees, powder-post beetles and termites. We are looking for such evidence as: live insects; damage to wooden components; habitat that is conducive for WDO’s; mud tunnels; entrance/exit holes; insect parts and insect droppings.

Any observations will be reported on and documented with photos, and further evaluation by a licensed pesticide applicator will be recommended. The report will be emailed as a separate attachment with photo documentation.
