A Move-In Certified™ Seller Inspection can save you a lot of headaches and potentially streamline the selling process. If problems are discovered, you will have time to make needed repairs or corrections without having to make rushed decisions about the contractor you choose.

Here are the big advantages to having a Move-In Certified™ Inspection:

  • A Move-In CertifiedTM inspection report can be used as a marketing tool, both at the open house and online.
  • Reduces the need for negotiations and 11th-hour renegotiations.
  • Deals less likely to fall apart they way they do when a buyer’s inspection reveals problems at the last minute.
  • You and your agent are alerted to any safety issues before other agents or buyers tour the home. Issues can be addressed so home shows better.
  • A Move-In CertifiedTM Seller Inspection helps eliminate buyer’s remorse that sometimes occurs just after a buyer’s inspection.
  • Allows you to take the time to shop competitively priced contractors to make repairs, rather than making rushed decisions at last minute.
  • You will have the opportunity to dispute any misstatements in the inspection report before it’s given to real estate agents and prospective buyers.
  • The report provides an unbiased, third- party, professional opinion about the condition of the home to potential buyers.
  • The report can be hosted online, which can be used as a marketing tool.
  • The report can help you substantiate a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or have been corrected.
  • The report helps provide full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
  • Schedule inspection at your convenience, rather than accommodate a buyer and their inspector.
  • The report may relieve a prospective buyer’s unfounded suspicions and concerns before he walks away from an otherwise great deal.

How Much Does a Home Inspection Cost?

Home Inspection costs vary by size, age, and complexity of the property and can impact the price just like it affects the time to complete an inspection.

Generally, your Top Dog Inspection for homes built after 1980 and up to 2,200 square feet will cost a base fee of $350, plus $.10 per square foot thereafter.

Older homes, multi-building homes, or homes with uncommon features or equipment take a little more time and cost a little more.
