Certified home pre-inspection programs are designed to provide seamless real estate transactions for all parties. A certified pre-inspection guarantees that a property has been inspected and that any issues found have been addressed even before negotiation begins.
The main benefits that sellers receive from certified home pre-inspections relate to the marketability of their property. A seller can confirm that there are no major systems in need of immediate repair or replacement, and no known safety hazards.
A certified pre-inspection informs the seller of any defects or problems in advance of listing their property, allowing the seller to address those issues before prospective buyers discover them. Sellers can then take the needed time to obtain reasonable repair estimates and avoid costly 11th hour negotiations and repairs, making it easier to justify their full asking price.
There are a number of advantages to home pre-inspection for buyers as well. Buyers benefit from knowing that an inspection has been completed by a professional inspector and the items addressed during the inspection have already been taken care of by the seller. That gives a buyer the option of waiving the inspection contingency, thus streamlining the sales process.
The certified home pre-inspection process helps prevent 11th hour negotiations and delays by revealing any problems or issues regarding the property ahead of time. The buyer then benefits directly by seeing the repair estimates and or paid invoices of the items outlined in the report. This process gives the buyer the information needed to make an informed home-buying decision.
The inspection process plays such a pivotal role in real estate transactions that in many cases it can make or break a deal. By moving the inspection to earlier in your timeline, pre-inspection can provide advantages to all parties.
