Author, Paul Duffau's book, The Essential Seller's Guide for Surviving The Home Inspection is an invaluable tool that all listing Realtors should keep on hand.

Not only does this book offer practical information, it also has a handy summary at the end of each chapter. Brilliant! This summary can be used to reinforce what the homeowner has just read or it can be used by those of us who are time-challenged and want a to-do list without any fluff.
Although Paul is an expert in the home inspection field, he has written this book as a simple, easy read. No homeowner will be intimidated by it's style or content.
Thank you Paul for providing me an avenue to help my homeowner clients prepare for their home to be inspected. Not only will they benefit, but it keeps Realtors from the unenviable task of having to point out clutter and minor home maintenance issues. It's a win/win for us all!!
