Pre-listing home inspection

How a pre-listing inspection can help you sell your home faster and for more money.

Many sellers believe that a home inspection should be paid for by a potential buyer prior to the sale. In reality, buyer inspections often result in a reduced offer, and sometimes scare buyers off altogether. Pre-listing inspections set realistic expectations and prevent surprises that result in costly 11th hour re-negotiations.

home sellers are turning to new strategies to sell quickly and at the right price” hiring inspectors before they put their homes on the market. ”

Liz Moore, an expert Real Estate broker and small business person of the year in Newport News, Va., says her firm pays for a pre-listing inspection for all her sellers. “It’s fair to say that is the reason our listings sell 30% faster than the market average,- she says. And early anecdotal evidence suggests that inspected houses “consistently sell for a few thousand dollars more.”

“The buyer has the upper hand when they have an inspection,” says
Coldwell Banker consumer specialist and agent Jessica Edwards. “If you are willing to do it ahead of time, you give the
control back to the seller.”

A-Pro’s “Certified Pre-Owned Home™” Program

A “Certified Pre-Owned home™” is a trademarked concept provided by A-Pro since 1997.

More than just a pre-listing home inspection, the purpose of this proven program is to provide actual security and value to the buyer of a property – and to give you, the seller, a marketable selling point in your listing.

Here’s how it works: the seller hires A-Pro to perform a pre-listing inspection. A-Pro completes the inspection, certifies it to the seller and guarantees the findings to the new buyer – thus, a Certified Pre-Owned home. The buyer no longer needs to pay for an inspection of their own, since our reports are transferred to the new buyer..

How’s that for piece of mind!
