Home Buyers

Buying a home? Make sure it's Move-In Certified® before you even think about moving in.

 
Are you buying a home?
 

Here are some advantages of buying a home that is Move-In Certified™:

  • The inspection has already been completed by the time you tour the home.

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

  • A Move-In Certified® Seller Inspection can help prevent 11th-hour re-negotiations and delays.

  • A Move-In Certified® Seller 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

    • gives you the information you need to make an informed home-buying decision.

There are distinct advantages of having access to a Move-In Certified® Seller Inspection report:

  • 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 you in your decision-making process prior to making an offer.

  • The report may relieve your unfounded suspicions and concerns before you decide to walk away from an otherwise great deal.

Sell My Home in Seconds!™ Add value to your home for sale by having it Move-In Certified®.

 
Are you selling your home?
 
 
Here are some advantages of having your home-for-sale inspected before you list it:

 

  • You can choose an InterNACHI Certified Professional  Inspector® 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.

  • You can schedule your inspection at your own convenience, rather than accommodate a buyer and his inspector.

  • You can assist your inspector during the inspection, which is something not normally done during a buyer's inspection.

  • A Move-In Certified® Seller Inspection may alert you to any immediate concerns, such a broken pressure-relief valve or an active termite infestation.

  • The Seller Inspection:

    • 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;

    • lets you attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report; and

    • removes over-inflated buyer-procured repair estimates from the negotiating table.

  • Move-In Certified® yard signs, free from your InterNACHI inspector, 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:

  • You're given the opportunity to dispute any misstatements in the inspection report before it's distributed to real estate agents and prospective buyers.

  • The report provides an unbiased, third-party, professional opinion about the condition of the home to potential buyers.

  • 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.

  • The report can help you realistically price the home if problems exist.

  • The report can help you substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.

  • The report may relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions and concerns before he walks away from an otherwise great deal.

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

Real Estate Professionals

Sell in Seconds!™ by making sure your listings are Move-In Certified®.

 
Here are some important advantages of listing a home that has been Move-In Certified®: 

  • You can recommend an InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector® to inspect the home before the buyer's inspector is hired.

  • Your client (the seller) can schedule the inspection at his convenience, with little effort on your part.

  • Your client can assist the inspector during the inspection, something that's not typically done during a buyer's inspection.  This can streamline the inspection process and give your client confidence in the condition of the home you're helping them sell. 

  • You and your client will be alerted to any immediate safety issues discovered, before other agents and potential buyers tour the home.

  • A seller inspection relieves you of having to hurriedly procure repair estimates and schedule repairs for your client.

  • Repairs can be made ahead of time and will help the home show better.

  • Your client will have the opportunity to correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it's generated and distributed to prospective buyers.

  • The inspection report will help your client see their home through the eyes of an unbiased third party, thus making them more realistic about their asking price.

  • A Move-In Certified® yard sign, provided by the InterNACHI inspector, will attract potential buyers looking for a home in the neighborhood.

  • The Move-In Certified® inspection report can be used as a marketing tool that goes beyond the seller's disclosure.  This kind of forthrightness is a great way to help sell the home and engage in a low-stress transaction.

  • The inspection report can help relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions and concerns before they walk away from an otherwise great deal.

  • A Move-In Certified® seller inspection report helps eliminate "buyer's remorse" that can sometimes occur after the buyer's inspection.  With a pre-listing inspection, the facts are up front and there are seldom any new issues or surprises by closing.

  • A seller inspection helps prevent protracted negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations. 

  • The seller inspection and report may persuade a buyer to waive his own inspection contingency.

  • The deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer's inspections reveals unexpected problems at the last minute. 

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