Pre-Listing Home Inspections For Toronto & The Surrounding Areas
Pre-listing inspection (Sellers inspection) are becoming more popular because they eliminate the pitfalls and hassles associated with waiting for a buyer’s home inspection. Waiting to schedule the inspection until after a pre-purchase offer is made, reduces the efficiency of selling a property.
