A Pre-Listing Home Inspection Adds Value, but a Certified Pre-Owned® Home Inspection is a Major Selling Point!
And is a proven concept to Sell Homes Faster and for More Money
“…home sellers are turning to new strategies to sell quickly and at the right price… hiring inspectors before they put their homes on the market”.
So, why are more sellers hiring an A-Pro Home Inspector before they have a buyer?
Simply because it’s a proven concept to sell homes faster and for more money…
“Liz Moore, a Real Estate broker in Newport News, Va., says her firm pays for a pre-listing inspection for all her sellers. ‘It’s fair to say that is the reason our listings sell 30% faster than the market average,’ she says. And early anecdotal evidence suggests that inspected houses ‘consistently sell for a few thousand dollars more.’ USA Today”
Conducting a pre-listing inspection benefits sellers in a number of ways…
But first, why a “Certified Pre-Owned Home”? The Certified Pre-Owned home concept was developed by A-Pro in 1997. The purpose of this unique and innovative program is to ensure that potential buyers will NOT need to undergo another home inspection after signing the purchase agreement.
After all, we at A-Pro feel the home inspection process is backward. A-Pro Home Inspector Brentwood has always believed the home inspection should be done on the front end, not the back-end. We won’t get into that now. Here’s a summary of how our unique “Certified Pre-Owned Home” program works. The seller hires A-Pro Home Inspection to perform the home inspection before the house goes on the market for sale.
A-Pro then performs the home inspection then presents the findings of the home inspection to the seller. The seller then has the opportunity to make repairs, if desired ( if so, the inspector may inspect the repairs for nominal fee or seller can simply keep the receipts of the repairs and attach with the report).
If the seller forgoes the repairs -NO problem. The important thing is that the problems are noted and the seller can now help justify the asking price. To further clarify, the asking price -now takes into consideration the inspector findings – fixed or not.
What’s more, since no other Home Inspector Brentwood company offers any type of guarantee – there is NO need to hire them.
