Complete your Title 5 inspection as soon as you decide you want to sell your home, but before you list your home for sale. The outcome of the inspection may dramatically effect how you market your home. For example, if your system fails inspection, you may be looking at several months before you can have the system upgraded and the cost can easily be $15,000.00 to $20,000.00 or more. If you have this information before you list your home, you can try to recoup some of that expense in the sale price, or decide to be less generous with some repair requests that a buyer may have after the home inspection.
