CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED HOME
Our Certified Pre-Owned Home program is a valuable tool for sellers, and places your home at the top of the list for every buyer in your market.
What is a Certified Pre-Owned Home?
When you use the Certified Pre-Owned program you are taking proactive steps to prepare your home to look and be at it's best before it hits the market. We do that by hiring a certified home inspector to check your home top-to-bottom, making improvments noted on the home inspection and including a two-year warranty for the future buyer of your home.
BENEFITS TO THE BUYER AND SELLER
For a buyer; finding a home that has little to no defects, is priced at a great value, and also includes a warranty is a gem of a deal. They have peace of mind knowing the home is actually Move-In Ready: the three most powerful words in the MLS system.
For a seller; there will be very few "surprises" as a result of the buyer's home inspection plus you will be able to do many of the repairs yourself (a buyer typically requires a licensed contractor to perform even the most minimal repairs). As a seller, you can also use the home warranty during the listing and contract period for any unplanned repairs that need to be addressed (ie: HVAC, plumbing leaks, electrical work, etc.)
Ultimately, a buyer will pay more money for a Certified Pre-Owned Home. Their agent will know the home is of great value and they will be working with a professional on the other side of the transaction. The cost of the Certified Pre-Owned Home program is minimal to the seller. There are three steps to the program.
The home is completely inspected by a recommended home inspector.
Most all repairs noted in the inspection are completed prior to the home going live on the market.
The seller will offer a 2-year Home Warranty to the future buyer.
Your home will be advertised as a "Certified Pre-Owned Home" and will feature a "Certified" logo on the sign and in any marketing materials.
