Why you should schedule a “Move In Certified” seller’s inspection with Hanson Home Inspections:

In today’s  real estate market most Homebuyers have their real estate sales offer contingent on an acceptable home inspection. This can be very stressful for all parties involved. A new home is a major investment and homebuyers want to be sure the home they are considering is structurally sound and that all the components are in working order at the time of the inspection.  They also want to know that the components will have a reasonable life expectancy that is comparable to the price the sellers are asking. But what happens when their home inspector finds key deficiencies such as a failing roof or a foundation that shows signs of movement and or moisture penetration? Chances are the homebuyers, especially first time homebuyers, will demand additional evaluations or may even want to back out of the transaction.

You may think this scenario seems unavoidable since most homebuyers hire a home inspector, and more than likely that home inspector will find something wrong, whether it be something major like the foundation or something minor like a leaking faucet.  However, situations like this can be avoided or their impact greatly reduced with a “Move in Certified” seller’s home inspection. Just as a homebuyer’s inspection is for the buyer’s peace of mind, the “Move in Certified” pre-sale home inspection is for the seller’s peace of mind. A “Move in Certified” pre-sale home inspection can provide the seller with a list of deficiencies likely to be discovered by the buyer’s home inspection and give them time to find acceptable and affordable solutions to them prior to showing, in short, it gives the seller a glimpse into the future of the sale.

The seller must anticipate that some problems are going to arise during the homebuyer’s inspection. Buyers will try to use these issues to negotiate a lower sales price and in many instances they will want two to three times the actual cost of the repairs in price concession. The benefit of a “Move in Certified” pre-sale inspection is that the inspection will mention the deficiencies, if any, and provide a baseline for the seller to get cost estimates completed. More importantly, however, the pre-sale inspection will highlight the homes attributes and provide the seller with firm reasoning for the asking price and leave little room for the buyers to negotiate a reduced price after receiving their home inspector’s report.
