5 Key Items to Minimize Unpleasant Surprises When Selling Your Home 

  1. Independent appraisal…by a licensed appraiser.
  2. Preliminary title report…will inform a homeowner of any liens that might be on the property.
  3. Inspection by local municipal building inspectors(s)…to advice of any building code or zoning violations.
  4. Home Inspection…having a qualified home inspector complete a professional home inspection will assist you, the homeowner, in making sure all mechanical systems are in good working order. A home in good working order will sell faster than a home in need of repairs.
  5. Plat survey…will notify a homeowner and prospective buyer of the actual lot lines of the property and will indicate any encroachments to the property.
