Find out more about the Pre-Certified Program
With "Pre-Certified Homes" the Seller has taken the initiative to demonstrate their commitment to you, the Buyer, by having their home inspected by a State Certified and Professional Inspector to review the condition of their home prior to your purchase. The inspection report will most likely be made available to you at your showing with an explanation from the Sellers as to their choice of either addressing defective items ( if any ) or disclosing to you repairs which may need to be completed. The Seller may provide you with copies of receipts and/or invoices for any repairs completed. In any event, you are now in a better position to decide if this truly is the home for you.
The Seller's home inspection report is not intended to replace your opportunity to have a full and complete inspection as addressed in the offer to purchase. We encourage every Buyer to have their own home inspection. However, as an added bonus, if you hire the same home inspector the Seller employed, the inspector may discount his fee to you. In addition, if you close on a property that is a "Pre-Certified Home", you will receive American Home Shield's (AHS) Home Warranty Protection Plan ($420+ value) at closing. This protection plan provides for the repair or replacement of an existing home's covered mechanical systems that break down due to normal wear and tear for one full year after closing. You can now gain the confidence that unexpected repair bills won't inflate the cost of your investment. AHS founded the home warranty industry in 1971, and has since brought responsive, high-quality protection to more than 6 million customers nationwide.
