Advantages to the Real Estate Agent:
  • Agents can recommend certified InterNACHI inspectors, as opposed to being at the mercy of buyer’s choices in inspectors.
  • Sellers can schedule the inspections at seller’s convenience, with little effort on the part of agents.
  • Sellers can assist inspectors during the inspections, something normally not done during buyers’ inspections.
  • Sellers can have inspectors correct any misstatements in the reports before they are generated.
  • The reports help sellers see their homes through the eyes of a critical third-party, thus making sellers more realistic about asking price.
  • Agents are alerted to any immediate safety issues found, before other agents and potential buyers tour the home.
  • Repairs made ahead of time might make homes show better.
  • Reports hosted online entice potential buyers to tour the homes.
  • The reports provide third-party, unbiased opinions to offer to potential buyers.
  • Clean reports can be used as marketing tools to help sell the homes.
  • The reports might relieve prospective buyers’ unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.
  • Seller inspections eliminate “buyer’s remorse” that sometimes occurs just after an inspection.
  • Seller inspections reduce the need for negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
  • Seller inspections relieve the agent of having to hurriedly procure repair estimates or schedule repairs.
  • The reports might encourage buyers to waive their inspection contingencies.
  • Deals are less likely to fall apart, the way they often do, when buyer’s inspections unexpectedly reveal last-minute problems.
  • Reports provide full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
Advantages to the Home Buyer:
  • The inspection is done already.
  • The inspection is paid for by the seller.
  • The report provides a more accurate third-party view of the condition of the home prior to making an offer.
  • A seller inspection eliminates surprise defects.
  • Problems are corrected, or at least acknowledged, prior to making an offer on the home.
  • A seller inspection reduces the need for negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
  • The report might assist in acquiring financing.
  • A seller inspection allows the buyer to sweeten the offer without increasing the offering price by waiving inspections.
