​​I had questions/concerns about some issues with my 18 year old house in Milton. I called and spoke with Dan who took the time to share his expertise and advice. No pressure sales, no BS. When I need somebody with whom to consult on any future issues I will definitely pull up this number first.

​As a licensed real estate salesperson here in the Capital district, I can speak from personal experience that Dan Wos of House Detective Inc. does an amazing job on his property inspections. The inspections were thorough, the reports were insightful, easy to read and understand, and come complete with lots of photos. I highly recommend House Detective!

​Called and talked to Dan. He answered a few of my questions just to be a great guy. Anyone who takes the time to answer the questions of someone who isn't a client, just to make sure they understand what they need is probably going to take great care of their paying clientele.

What is a Pre-list Inspection? 

A Pre-list Inspection is a full structural examination of the property.  House Detective will go through the property before it is listed and complete a full inspection of the home.

Why should sellers do a Prelisting Inspection?  
It has been proven that Pre-list Inspections help sell the home faster. 

Discounted inspection price.


No surprises when it comes time to close.

Your buyer will have an inspection done, but you will already be aware of any issues. 

A Pre-listing inspection could prevent any delays when it it comes time to close.

Potential buyers will likely appreciate your pro-activity with respect to you completing any necessary repairs prior to listing.

A much more attractive listing to buyers.

How does a Prelisting Inspection sell a home faster?
A Pre-list Inspection makes the home more desirable to buyers because they know it has already been inspected and any issues are disclosed upfront.  Sellers will not have to worry about problems that may arise when the buyer's inspector looks at the property.  It might help the buyer narrow down their choice between homes by helping your property stand out.  

How much is a Prelisting Inspection discounted?
House Detective Pre-list Inspections are discounted $25 from a regular structural inspection.  For more information on home inspection pricing please see services and pricing.  

What is meant by no surprises?
If there are any issues during the Pre-list Inspection, it allows time for the seller to make repairs before the home hits the market.  Most of the time the issues are minor; cracked outlet, doorknob hole in the bedroom, etc.

After completing a Pre-list Insepection sellers can have their house listed with confidence.
