Pre-Purchase Inspection (For home buyers)
Resale home inspections are key in discovering issues
such as aluminum wiring, knob and tube wiring, old or
abandoned oil tanks (current home insurance issues),
visible structural, heating, cooling and plumbing issues.
Remember, no house is perfect. A thorough home
inspection will help bring to light possible issues so
you can make an informed and intelligent decision for
your home purchase.
The cost of having Attic 2 Basement perform your
home inspection is very small when you compare it to the purchase price of the home and your peace of mind.

Pre-Listing Inspections (For home sellers)
One of the most popular inspections being requested! A pre-listing inspection helps prevent surprises for homeowners who are thinking about selling their home. A good inspection report makes your home more attractive to buyers and distinguishes your home from similar properties for sale.
Having a pre-listing inspection will allow you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party. A pre-listing inspection will permit you to make repairs ahead of time so that deficiencies will not become a negotiating stumbling block at the time of your sale.
One way to be sure you obtain a better price for your house is to have a home inspection before you list it. Pre-listing inspections can also prevent a lost sale because of confusion on an issue that is not a big problem, it will eliminate the need for multiple inspections if you are in a multi-offer situation, and it may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency. It may also relieve the buyer’s concerns or suspicions and may help sell your house faster! A pre-listing inspection can also alert you to issues that are of immediate personal concerns.
We inspect your home and provide you with a comprehensive report complete with colour digital photographs, a binder and a summary of the inspection highlights. We also provide 10 copies of the summary report for distribution at your open house.
For Pre-Listing fees
The home inspection fee is payable to the inspector upon completion of the inspection.
We accept personal cheque or cash. The above fees are subject to HST
