What Is a Certified Pre-Owned Home and Why Is it Good For Me?
Our Certified Pre-Owned Home marketing program for sellers is designed to eliminate the perils of post-offer inspections with its surprises and often high unexpected expense to the sellers. This warranty-backed initiative provides sellers a no-cost upfront home inspection that is completed and repairs made before any buyers are involved.
This will eliminate much of the post-offer re-negotiations that can lead to a fail contract as neither buyer nor seller wants to undertake costly repairs. Of course, one of the best benefits of this is that many of the hassles will be eliminated by getting the potential deal-breaking problems solved prior to the homes being put on the market for sale.
As you may know, most home sales in Florida require an inspection by a state-licensed professional. In cases when we are representing the buyers, home inspections are an absolute must for the buyer’s peace of mind as well as most mortgage companies require an inspection before the loan can get an approval of the mortgage. Unless it is a cash offer or buyers are intending to make major renovations or perhaps the buyer merely wants the lot and intent to tear down the home.
These inspections usually happen after the buyer makes an offer which frequently results in nail-biting price re-negotiations, delayed closings, exaggerated costs or worse a cancellation of the sales contract. Nobody wants that outcome because everybody ends up exhausted, frustrated and disappointed.
You are probably familiar with the expression “Buyer Beware“. It really is a bit misleading because both the buyer and the seller must be aware of the potential pitfalls that can pop up on either side of the contract. Buyers can miss out on the home of their dreams and the sellers miss out on an opportunity to sell their property which is their goal in the first place!
Our program is designed to eliminate the pressures associated with the buying and selling of property. For the buyer, they get the benefits of having a move in ready, smooth closing and carefree worry about what might be wrong with the house they are purchasing. As for the seller, they are the biggest benefactors because they are secure in knowing that their home has passed all inspections required by the mortgage company and any qualifier buyer can immediately set a closing date to buy their dream home.
No intense re-negotiations are required because the house will have a certificate verifying the home has passed the inspection process. Buying and selling a home should be a positive experience for people.
