Seller Inspections

Are you looking to sell your commercial real estate property? One of the most effective ways to expedite the sales process is by having a seller inspection performed on the property. At VERIDORN, our CCPIA® members provide comprehensive seller inspections, also known as pre-listing inspections or pre-inspections, to help you sell your property with confidence.

What Is a Seller Inspection?

A seller inspection of a commercial property is carried out by the seller, typically before it is listed on the market. The seller is the inspector’s client, and the inspection is conducted in accordance with the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties. In some cases, the property may be designated as “Move-In Certified®" following the inspection.

Advantages of a Seller Inspection

Having a certified inspector from VERIDORN perform a seller inspection offers numerous benefits:

  1. Proactive Approach: A qualified member of the CCPIA® will thoroughly inspect the building before the buyer’s inspector arrives, allowing you to address any issues proactively.
  2. Convenient Scheduling: You can schedule the inspection at your convenience, ensuring minimal disruption to your property’s operations.
  3. Identification of Immediate Concerns: The inspection can alert you to any items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
  4. Seller Assistance: Unlike a buyer’s inspection, you can assist the inspector during the seller inspection, providing valuable insights and information.
  5. Report Accuracy: You have the opportunity to review and correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is finalized.
  6. Realistic Pricing: The report can help you price the property realistically based on its condition whether problems exist or have been corrected.
  7. Proactive Repairs: Identifying problems ahead of time allows you to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors, removing overinflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.
  8. Safety Assurance: The report can alert you to any immediate safety issues found, ensuring the safety of agents and visitors touring the property.
  9. Unbiased Opinion: A seller inspection provides a third party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential buyers, demonstrating your transparency and commitment to a smooth transaction.
  10. Effective Marketing: A clean property inspection report hosted on VERIDORN’s website can be used as a powerful marketing tool to attract potential buyers.
  11. Reduced Suspicions: The report can help alleviate a prospective buyer’s unfounded suspicions, preventing them from walking away unnecessarily.
  12. Streamlined Negotiations: A seller inspection can streamline negotiations and reduce last-minute renegotiations, as potential issues have already been addressed.
  13. Waived Contingencies: With a comprehensive seller inspection report, buyers may be more likely to waive the inspection contingency, further expediting the sales process.
  14. Reduced Risk of Fallout: By identifying and addressing issues early on, the risk of the deal falling apart due to unexpectedly revealed problems during a buyer’s inspection is significantly reduced.
  15. Legal Protection: A seller inspection provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims related to the property’s condition.
