2. SELLER'S PREPOBSERVATION- is not a home inspection, it is a COMPREHENSIVE PROPERTY OBSERVATION performed by a certified home inspector, for the home seller to help ascertain the true condition of the property. This observation is essentially the same inspection that a buyer will request to have completed by a home inspection company prior to purchasing your home. The only difference is that with the SELLER'S PREP observation, your written observation reports only on items in need of repair or replacement. By knowing what repairs are needed prior to listing your home, you have the opportunity to remedy any issues or adjust your asking price prior to listing.
