A year ago I gave advice to a friend to have a pre listing inspection done. He did not take my advice. He was planning on moving into a condo and would be selling his house. Well, he got his condo and put his house on the market only to find out he would lose $20,000 because the buyer's inspector had everything he needed to repair/ replace in his inspection. If you know you are going to be moving out of your current residency, have it inspected now so you can fix things before you sell it.
