Selling a home

A Pre-Listing Home Inspection Adds Value, but an Certified Pre-Owned® Home Inspection is a Major Selling Point!


And is a proven concept to Sell Homes Faster and for More Money


“…home sellers are turning to new strategies to sell quickly and at the right price… hiring inspectors before they put their homes on the market”.


So, why are more sellers hiring A-Pro Home Inspection Services before they have a buyer?



Because they understand that an A-Pro pre-listing  Home Inspection can lead to more buyers, and quicker sales.


“Liz Moore, a Real Estate broker in Newport News, Va., says her firm pays for a pre-listing inspection for all her sellers. ‘It’s fair to say that is the reason our listings sell 30% faster than the market average,’ she says. And early anecdotal evidence suggests that inspected houses ‘consistently sell for a few thousand dollars more.’  USA Today”


Conducting a home inspection before the house is listed for sale benefits sellers in a number of ways…


But first, why a “Certified Pre-Owned Home”? The Certified Pre-Owned home concept was developed by A-Pro in 1997. The purpose of this unique and innovative program is to ensure that potential buyers will NOT need to undergo another home inspection after signing the purchase agreement. After all, we at A-Pro feel the home inspection process is backwards. We at A-Pro have always believed the home inspection should be done on the front end, not the back-end. We won’t get into that now.

Here’s a summary of how our unique “Certified Pre-Owned Home” program works. The seller hires A-Pro Home Inspection Services to perform the home inspection, before the house goes on the market for sale. A-Pro,  then performs the home inspection and guarantees the findings of the home inspection to the seller. The seller then has the opportunity to make repairs, if desired ( if so, the inspector may inspect the repairs for nominal fee or seller can simply keep the receipts of the repairs and attach with the report).  If  the  seller forgoes the repairs –NO PROBLEM – it really doesn’t matter. The important thing  is that the problems are noted and the seller can now help justify the asking price. To further clarify, the asking price  -now takes into consideration the inspector findings – fixed or not.

What’s more,  since no other home inspection company offers any type warranty  — there is NO need to hire them.


Once the inspection is complete,  the home earns the proud new exclusive status – “Certified Pre-owned Home.”  Which simply put, the report is guaranteed for 120- days. How’s that for piece of mind!
