Pre-Sale Home Inspection

Collins Realty Group, Crown Point Free Pre-Sale Home Inspection ImageYou need to sell your home fast and easy.  With no time to waste, you want to close on your home  quickly, on your terms, and for top dollar.  Like  insurance, a pre-sale inspection can protect sellers  and help lower the stress of selling your home.  


Collins Realty Group, Crown Point Free Pre-Sale Home Inspection Image 2According to the National Association of Realtors, 
99% of Realtors encourage buyers to use a home inspection and 84% do.  But less than 10% of sellers hire a home inspector, according to  As a seller, you need a pre-sale home inspection to protect your interest.  

3 Reasons You Need a Pre-Sale Home Inspection

1.  You can repair defects or safety issues before you list and market your home.  If you know your problems and fix them before the sale, you can net more money. 

2.  You’ll have a better bargaining position when the buyer’s inspection is complete.  You can better negotiate requests because you’ll know exactly what you must fix on the buyer’s wish list.

Collins Realty Group, Inc. gives our sellers extra value.  When you list with us, you get a pre-sale home inspection by a licensed Indiana home inspector, our owner, Shaw Collins.  Shaw has over 10 years of experience in the construction and home improvement field.  Shaw’s professional home inspection helps sellers decide their best pricing strategy.  Whether you want to sell in its current condition or make repairs or upgrades, Shaw’s pre-sale home inspection is a must for any seller.  And the pre-sale home inspection is included for listing clients of Collins Realty Group, Inc.!

What my clients are saying  

We went with Collins Realty Group because they offered the full service that other Brokers were offering, but for only 4% instead of 5% or 6%. And they did a lot of other things the other Brokers could not do, and they were all for free. They provided a Home Inspection by a licensed Indiana Home Inspector. They built us a custom Website with our address as the URL. They helped us stage the home with a Certified Staging Professional. And they provided Drone Video and Photography by a FAA Licensed Drone Pilot. They said they did all this to help sell our home quickly and make the transaction as easy as possible for us. It worked. The transaction went very smoothly. Our house was opened for appointments to view on Friday, August 21st. By Saturday, August 22nd, we had 7 requests to view, 5 offers (2 for full price) and we accepted one of those. The closing was set for October 2nd and was closed on time. It couldn’t have been any better. Jeff and Kirsten Limbaugh

We were drawn to Collins Realty Group when we read their advertisement in our local paper. We saw that they dealt with helping seniors move and with downsizing. It was a pleasure to work with Georgene throughout this process. Her patience and understanding were exceptional with helping us deal with the difficulties we encountered with the buyer.
