What is a pre-listing inspection?

Pre-listing inspections from Northerneer certify your home move-in ready – BEFORE you list your home! It catches problems before they’re problems. Therefore, the future buyers encounter very few surprises because you’ve already taken care of them. Or, at the very least, they’re revealed in the pre-inspection report. The inspection is scheduled on YOUR time with YOU present right along side the inspector. Some benefits are: 

  • 120-Day Warranty Included
  • Pre-listing inspections let you attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
  • Allows you to take the time to shop for competitively priced contractors and make repairs, rather than to get things done in a hurry.
  • The report may encourage the buyer to waive their own inspection contingency, so the deal is less likely to collapse. 

Having a pre-listing inspection by Northerneer deems the home officially ‘Move-In Certified’. That’s really a thing! ‘Move-In Certified’ homes are searchable on our trade associations website via Fetch Report. This gives the inspection report to anyone who visits the home for a showing. We even give you a yard sign!

  • The report can be distributed to buyers via fetchreport.com. This adds a layer of transparency to the transaction that today’s buyer needs but aren’t accustomed to. It gives the home an edge. 
  • Move-In Certified homes often warrant higher asking prices and yield better offers. 
  • The buyers may choose to waive the buyers inspection.
