    I like how you mentioned that having a pre-listing home inspection can help you find any issues that potential buyers will come across later. My husband and I are going to be selling our house, and we want to put it up after doing some improvements. Maybe it would be a good idea to have an inspection done so we know what areas we should work on.

    Like Lillian mentioned, it’s so helpful for knowing what improvements to make. Everything thinks about bathrooms and kitchens, but it’s super helpful.
