Move-In Certified Logo – Means Homes Pre-Inspected and Ready!

Advantages of selling a home that has been Move-In Certified™ include:

  • A Move-In Certified™ seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
  • The seller can choose a certified InterNACHI inspector to inspect the home properly before the buyer’s inspector arrives.
  • The seller can schedule the inspection at his or her own convenience.
  • The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection — something not normally done during a buyer’s inspection.
  • The inspection may alert the seller to any immediate concerns, such as radon gas or an active termite infestation.
  • Move-In Certified™ yard signs attract potential buyers.
  • A seller inspection reveals problems ahead of time, which:
    • gives the seller time to shop for competitively priced contractors to make repairs;
    • permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report;
    • makes the home show better after problems are addressed; and
    • removes over-inflated buyer-procured repair estimates from the negotiation table.
  • A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.

There are other distinct advantages of having a Move-In Certified™ inspection report, include:

  • The seller is given an opportunity to dispute any misstatements in the inspection report before it is distributed to real estate agents and prospective buyers.
  • The report provides an unbiased, third-party, professional opinion to potential buyers.
  • The report may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency, so the deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer’s inspection reveals unexpected problems at the last-minute.
  • The report can be hosted on, which can be used as an effective marketing tool.
  • The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
  • The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or have been corrected.
  • The report may relieve a prospective buyer’s unfounded suspicions, before he walks away.
