Home Inspections – A Win-Win Investment!
More and more real estate professionals are encouraging home buyers to invest in a professional home inspection before purchasing a property. Additionally, a growing number of agents are even suggesting pre-listing inspections to sellers. The reason is simple – a quality real estate inspection is to the advantage of everyone involved in a transaction. Buyers learn about the property up front and can proceed with greater confidence and peace of mind. Furthermore, sellers who’ve had a pre-listing inspection may sell their homes more quickly and with fewer surprises. Finally, real estate professionals enjoy more efficient transactions with less chance for unpleasant and potentially costly post-closing problems.
An AmeriSpec® Home Inspection offers these and other benefits to real estate professionals:
Reduced Liability - AmeriSpec inspectors carry extensive Errors and Omissions insurance and General Liability insurance, and we offer negligent referral coverage to help protect real estate professionals in the event a claim is brought against them for recommending AmeriSpec. Real estate agents must have a written agreement with AmeriSpec in order to qualify for coverage, along with their own Errors & Omissions insurance policy. Contact your local AmeriSpec inspector for more details.
Less Buyer Discomfort – Whether the property your client is considering is old or new, our professional inspectors help provide peace of mind that the home is live-in ready.
Curtailed Buyer’s Remorse – Many homebuyers believe that a brand-new home is a worry-free investment. But even the best homebuilders make mistakes, and that’s where AmeriSpec can help. Our impartial inspectors can conduct a new home inspection that may disclose items in need of repair, therefore helping to reduce buyer’s remorse after the purchase.
Professional Image and Credibility – A professional AmeriSpec home inspection report helps lend credibility and stature to the image of the real estate professional. It can tell customers that the firm and its sales associates are working in the best interests of both the buyer and seller.
More Sales – The home is priced closer to its value, which can help improve the speed and likelihood of a sale.
Less Negotiation – Prior acknowledgement of any defects that are already reflected in the sales price may often leave buyers with fewer objections.
Reduced Listing Time – A home inspection benefits all parties involved by providing insight into the condition of the home, thereby helping to reduce the overall listing time of your client’s property. The AmeriSpec Seller’s Assistance Program (ASAP) helps provide a more accurate depiction of a home’s condition, and allows everyone to become more familiar with the property. This may help your listings sell faster and closer to the asking price. Click here for more information on the ASAP Program.
