Move-In Certified, Pre-Inspected Homes

There are a multitude of advantages to selling a home that has been Move-In Certified: 

  • The seller can choose a certified InterNACHI inspector to inspect the home properly before the buyer's inspector arrives.

  • The seller can schedule the inspections at the seller's convenience.

  • It might alert the seller to any items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.

  • The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's inspection.

  • The seller can have the inspector correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is generated.

  • 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.

  • A seller inspection reveals problems ahead of time which:
    • might make the home show better.
    • gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.
    • permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
    • removes over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.
  • The report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.

  • The report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential buyers.

  • A seller inspection permits a clean home inspection report hosted on www.FetchReport.com to be used as a marketing tool.

  • Move In Certified yard signs attract potential buyers. 

  • A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.

  • The report might relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.

  • A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.

  • The report might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.

  • The deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer's inspection unexpectedly reveals a problem, last minute.

  • The report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
