Thanks again for visiting our website. I am looking forward to getting out and meeting each of you as I make my way around the North Florida Realtor offices. I have company folders that you can keep handy that give a brief description of my services, as well as brochures and business cards for your customers that may be considering a Home Inspection prior to their purchase. I even have some treats for your break room.

I understand if you already have an Inspector that you use regularly and have built a relationship with, and I am not trying to replace them. I am simply looking to give you another option if you need Inspection services. I believe competition is needed in the service industry. It's what keeps us from getting lazy, and not always trying to do our best.

One service that I am proud to offer to all Realtors is the Move In Certified - Pre-Inspection. This has really taken off for me lately, and more and more Realtors are asking for it.

Basically, here's how it works... When you have a customer who wants to list their home with you, you ask the seller if they would consider having it Pre-Inspected. I will come out and perform my Standard Home Inspection, with the Detailed Water Analysis, and present the seller with the inspection, I will also hang my sign, as a rider on your sign, to show everyone this house is "Move In Certified".

Here's a few of the advantages of selling a home that has been Move In Certified 

  • The seller can schedule the inspections at the seller's convenience.
  • It might alert the seller to any items of immediate personal concern, such as mold or active termite infestation.
  • The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's inspection.
  • The seller can have the inspector correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is generated.
  • The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
  • The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.
  • A seller inspection reveals problems ahead of time which:
    • might make the home show better.
    • gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.
    • permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
    • removes over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.
  • The report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.
  • The report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential buyers.
  • Move In Certified yard signs attract potential buyers. 
  • A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
  • The report might relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.
  • A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
  • The deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer's inspection unexpectedly reveals a problem, last minute.
  • The report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.

This way anyone who is interested in the house can see the complete inspection while they tour the house, thereby taking all of the guess work out for everyone. The seller does not have to worry that when the potential buyer gets the home inspected something will pop up before closing, and the buyer does not have to worry that something major is hidden inside, yet to be discovered, and that there are no major systems in need of immediate repair or replacement, and no known safety hazards.

It's also a great  tool for "Open House" time. The full Pre-Inspection is available to everyone to see during your Open House. You can even pass out copies to anyone who is really interested.

And here's the best part.... I will take $25.00 off of my price of my Standard Home Inspection for anyone who schedules the Pre-Inspection, and you can use these logos in your listing and advertising. It's a true Win-Win-Win !



Periodically, I send out emails keeping everyone up to date on my business, and the Home Inspection Industry in general. I'll let you know if any new laws come into effect concerning Home Inspections (July 01, 2011 - The entire State of Florida will be requiring Home Inspectors to pass State Licensing Requirements and obtain a Florida Occupational License to remain in business). I'll let you know when I am certified in new areas (I am always taking Continuing Education classes). I'll let you know when there are new problems in home construction (like Chinese drywall).

I would also love to speak at your Office Meetings when you bring in all of your Associates, or if you are having a Workshop or Seminar, I would love to conduct a Presentation. You can always call me Toll Free anytime if you have any questions or concerns, and yes, I do answer my phone.
