Pre Listing Inspections
- Pre Listing Inspections
Advantages of selling a home that has been Move-In Certified include:
- A Move-In Certified seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
- The seller can choose a certified InterNACHI inspector to inspect the home properly before the buyer’s inspector arrives.
- The seller can schedule the inspection at his or her own convenience.
- The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection — something not normally done during a buyer’s inspection.
- The inspection may alert the selle
- r to any immediate concerns, such as radon gas or an active termite infestation.
- Move-In Certified yard signs attract potential buyers.
- A seller inspection reveals problems ahead of time, which: gives the seller time to shop for competitively-priced contractors to make repairs; permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report; makes the home show better after problems are addressed; and removes over-inflated buyer-procured repair estimates from the negotiation table.
- A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
There are other distinct advantages of having a Move-In Certified inspection report, including:
- The seller is given an opportunity to dispute any misstatements in the inspection report before it is distributed to real estate agents and prospective buyers.
- The report provides an unbiased, third-party, professional opinion to potential buyers.
- The report may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency, so the deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer’s inspection reveals unexpected problems at the last minute.
- The report can be hosted on www.FetchReport.com, which can be used as an effective marketing tool.
- The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
- The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or have been corrected.
- The report may relieve a prospective buyer’s unfounded suspicions, before he walks away.
- The report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
