Additional Fees – California

California Inspection Surcharge

California Real Estate Law, requires Listing Brokers to visually inspect all property, or have a licensed 3rd party visually inspect the property, prior to listing any residential real properties in the MLS. This applies to all properties, including vacant land.

The additional fee charged to list your property in California is used to cover the expense of a licensed real estate professional to conduct the inspection. You will be contacted directly to arrange a time for the inspection that suits your schedule.

Please note that we will need the inspection report prior to us being able to list your home in the MLS.
