How to Reduce the Suprise Factor of a Home Inspection

Home Inspector with EKAN Home Inspection CPBC #69177


EKAN receives many inquiries about pre-listing inspections from our North Shore and Sunshine Coast property owners. Also referred to as a seller’s inspection, this is where an inspection report is delivered  prior to having a home posted on MLS. There are a number of reasons why a seller should consider this service of value. Here are some of the more important reasons to do this now, rather than relying on a buyer’s inspector.


  • Find out in a non-threatening environment what others will see as defects, deficiencies or concerns in a property that you as the seller are too emotionally attached to notice. A seller’s inspection report removes the surprise factor, later when an issue is brought up by the buyer. 
  • The property owner can obtain competitive pricing and quotes in advance for any repairs and know in advance how much the remedy would cost. This knowledge may be priceless when negotiating with a buyer. 
  • Pick and choose which items to correct. Issues made good in advance of an open house may pay big dividends when it comes to first impressions. This is especially important to do in a buyer’s market.

At EKAN Inspections, not only do we deliver a concise report, we pride ourselves on exceptional follow-up support.
