Home buyer's pre-purchase inspection
Often scheduled prior to closing on either new or existing homes. This inspection covers numerous components in the home and includes a written report succinctly detailing safety concerns and the the home's overall current condition. The report gives buyers crucial information needed to make the an informed decision about the home while gaining knowledge for future maintenance. Be sure there is an inspection clause in your sales contract, making your final purchase obligation contingent on the findings of a professional home inspection.
Home seller's pre-listing inspection

This is for the seller looking for the confidence of an objective report on the condition of their home. Performed prior to listing or selling this inspection gives owners an idea of maintenance items to address. Knowing all your homes issues can reduce time spent in contract negotiation because a qualified independent source has established what should be addressed. If repairs can't be made ahead of selling, then disclosing this up front often results in higher net sales price for the owner.
