A move-in inspection can help you and your seller close the sale. Here are some of the benefits.
• The agent can recommend a certified inspector to inspect the home before the buyer’s inspector arrives.
• The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something that is not normally done during the buyer’s inspection.
• The seller and agent are alerted to any immediate safety issues discovered before other agents and potential buyers tour the home, and any issues or repairs can be resolved ahead of time, without rushing, which will help the home show better.
• The seller is given the opportunity to dispute or clarify any misstatements in the report before it’s generated for distribution.
• The inspection report helps the seller see his home through the eyes of an unbiased third party, thus making him/her more realistic about the asking price.
• A move-in inspection report can be used as a marketing tool to help sell the home at the open house.
• A Move-In yard sign attracts potential buyers.
• A move-in inspection helps eliminate buyer’s remorse that sometimes occurs just after a buyer’s inspection.
• A move-in inspection reduces the need for negotiations and the 11th hour renegotiations.
• A move-in inspection may encourage a buyer to waive his own inspection contingency.
• Deals are less likely to fall apart the way they sometimes do when a buyer’s inspection unexpectedly reveals problems at the last minute.
• A move-in inspection provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
Prepare your home as if your open house is tomorrow
