Our pre-offer inspections are most common in competitive real estate markets with multiple offers, this preliminary, information-only home inspection evaluates a home’s major systems and any potential issues, giving home buyers the information to make an informed decision on whether to place an offer on a property. Pre-offer verbal home inspections take about an hour and a half and are a valuable option in time-sensitive situations.
The verbal pre-offer inspection is not a replacement for a standard buyers’ home inspection. If you choose to make an offer on the home and decide to move forward with the purchase you will still want to get a standard buyers’ inspection which inspects fourteen major home systems, takes about three to four hours, and includes a computer generated report with photos. The standard home inspection is the type of inspection required by the state when requested by a home buyer after the offer on a house is made.
