Are you selling your home?
Here are some advantages of having your home-for-sale inspected before you list it:
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.
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 be hosted on www.FetchReport.com, which can be used as an effective marketing tool.
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.
