Are you buying a home?
Here are some advantages of buying a home that is Move-In Certified™:
ü The inspection has already been completed by the time you tour the home.
ü The inspection has already been paid for by the seller, giving you the option of waiving your inspection contingency, which streamlines the sales process.
ü A Move-In Certified® Seller Inspection can help prevent 11th-hour re-negotiations and delays.
ü A Move-In Certified® Seller Inspection can reveal problems ahead of time, which:
ü gives the seller time to make repairs;
ü permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report; and
ü gives you the information you need to make an informed home-buying decision.
ü Easy-to-read inspection report that provides an accurate assessment by a qualified third-party of the condition of the home. This is an essential step in helping you in your decision-making process prior to making an offer.
ü The report may relieve your unfounded suspicions and concerns before you decide to walk away from an otherwise great deal.
Are you selling your home?
Here are some advantages of having your home-for-sale inspected before you list it:
ü You can call us to inspect your home first, which may prompt the buyer to waive his own inspection contingency. And even if he doesn't, a Seller Inspection means you won't be in for any surprises.
ü You can schedule your inspection at your own convenience, rather than accommodate a buyer and his inspector.
ü You can assist your inspector during the inspection, which is something not normally done during a buyer's inspection.
ü A Move-In Certified® Seller Inspection may alert you to any immediate concerns, such a broken pressure-relief valve or an active termite infestation.
ü The Seller Inspection:
o allows you to take the time to shop for competitively priced contractors to make repairs, rather than making rushed decisions to get things fixed in a hurry;
o lets you attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report; and
o removes over-inflated buyer-procured repair estimates from the negotiating table.
ü Move-In Certified® yard sign, free from us, will attract potential buyers touring homes in your neighborhood.
A Move-In Certified® Seller Inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on your part.
There are other distinct advantages of having a Move-In Certified® Seller Inspection report:
ü You're given the opportunity to dispute any misstatements in the inspection report before it's distributed to real estate agents and prospective buyers.
ü The report provides an unbiased, third-party, professional opinion about the condition of the home to potential buyers.
ü The report may encourage the buyer to waive his own 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.
ü The report can help you realistically price the home if problems exist.
ü The report can help you substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.
ü The report may relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions and concerns before he walks away from an otherwise great deal.
ü The report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
