Make sure your listings are Move-In Certified™

For Buyers

 

Advantages of buying a home that is Move-In Certified™ include:

 

  • The inspection has already been completed by the time the buyer tours the home.

  • The inspection has already been paid for by the seller, giving the buyer the option of waiving the inspection contingency, which streamlines the sales process.

 

The inspection can reveal problems ahead of time, which:

  • Gives the seller time to make repairs;

  • Permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report; and

  • Helps the seller realistically set the price.

 

There are distinct advantages of having access to a Move-In Certified™ inspection report, including:

  • The inspection generates an easy-to-read report that provides an accurate assessment by a qualified third-party of the condition of the home.  This is an essential step in helping the buyer in his decision-making process prior to making an offer.

  • The inspection report is hosted online on this website  

  • The report may relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before he walks away.

For Sellers

 

Property owners are turning to new strategies.  And one tactic that is increasingly bringing buyers and sellers closer together is a property inspection obtained by the seller before the home is even listed.  A seller’s inspection report is not in lieu of one commissioned by the buyer, but it often accomplishes the goal of signaling openness and good faith while at the same time unearthing any unpleasant surprises.

According to one source, buyers typically expect a $2 to $3 price discount for every $1 worth of defects turned up by their inspector.

With their own report, sellers can choose, for example, to spend a few hundred dollars fixing a plumbing problem that might otherwise mushroom into a claim for more than $1,000 off the price and, in the process, spark further potentially prickly negotiations.


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.

  • 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 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.
