Progress with your Real Estate transaction with Pro-Tek!


Today, smart proactive home buyers and sellers understand the advantages and benefits of a professional home inspection. A basic understanding of home inspections is therefore indispensable for real estate professionals. Every Pro-Tek home inspection is performed by a thoroughly qualified and ASHI certified inspector. We provide convenient scheduling for you to attend the inspection, and professionally developed and understandable reports to review with your clients. These benefits will provide the buyers with documented information needed to make progress with your real estate transaction.







Imparts Good Will

When you recommend that a pre-purchase home inspection be performed, you increase your credibility and enhance your reputation with the buyer by showing that you respect the importance of this major investment. This, in turn, builds buyer confidence and helps to develop a solid long-term client referral network. In short, every satisfied buyer represents a potential future listing and commission.



Supports Seller and Agent Obligations

A pre-purchase home inspection helps demonstrate your good faith effort to protect the seller’s interest in terms of any legal obligation to disclose the condition of the house. Such disclosure before the sale helps to reduce the possibility of litigation afterward. In some areas, a pre-listing inspection is becoming popular as a way of helping sellers to identify necessary repairs in advance. This allows them to prepare their property and set an equitable price for a quicker and smoother sale.



Maintains Impartiality

Although many buyers have a friend or relative in the building trade who may be able to offer some friendly advice, it is not to their advantage to rely on opinions which may be not be completely objective. In addition, only a trained professional home inspector is equally familiar with the many elements of home construction and their proper installation, maintenance and inter-relationship.


Motivates Buyers

Occasionally, home buyers are reluctant to move forward on a transaction, due to either financial or other personal concerns. In these instances, an objective, professional home inspection helps to answer questions, allay apprehensions, and put the home and the transaction into proper perspective.


Provides Education

The home inspection is a source of useful information which you can apply to future marketing activities. The more knowledgeable you become about home construction and maintenance, the more accurately you will be able to evaluate and market homes. You will also be in a better position to overcome any negotiation obstacles that may arise, and to keep the purchase process moving forward.


Increases Buyer Satisfaction

A buyer who decides on a home based on objective, professional information will be more realistic and, as a result, more satisfied with the property than one who does not. He or she will understand that no house is perfect, and appreciate in advance that some maintenance and repair work will be necessary.
