A Pre-Listing Home InspectionAdds Value,
but a Certified Pre-Owned® Home Inspection is a Major Selling Point!
And Has Been Proven to Sell Homes Faster and For More Money
“…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.
So, Why are more sellers hiring A-Pro Home Inspection before they have a buyer?
Because they understand that a pre-listing A-Pro Home Inspection can lead to more buyers, and quicker sales.
“Liz Moore, a broker 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.’ USA Today”
Conducting an A-Pro Home Inspectionbefore the house is listed for sale benefits sellers in a number of ways. But first, what is a Certified Pre-Owned Home? A Certified Pre-Owned home is a trademarked concept provided by A-Pro since 1997. The purpose of this proven program is to assure potential buyers that they will not need to undergo another home inspection after signing the purchase agreement. Here’s how that works, the seller hires A-Pro to perform a pre-listing inspection. A-Pro then certifies to the seller the inspection and guarantees the findings to the new buyer a Certified Pre-Owned home. And, since competitive Home Inspection companies do NOT offer guarantees on their inspections, there is no need to hire them, since the home is now guaranteed for 120-days by A-Pro. How’s that for a piece of mind!
