Eligibility Requirements

  1. Hire us: we’re InterNACHI® Certified Professional Inspectors who participate in the program. Not all InterNACHI® members participate or can participate.
  2. Purchase the inspected home as your primary residence.
  3. Submit a written or electronic request to InterNACHI® to buy back your home within 90 days of closing if a covered defect is discovered.
  4. List your home for sale at the original purchase price with a licensed real estate agent, following InterNACHI®’s commission requirements.

If your claim is approved, InterNACHI® will pay you the full purchase price of your home, as shown on your original contract. You’ll be responsible for any closing costs, commissions, and other fees associated with the sale.

To ensure a smooth process, it’s important to note that:

  1. Your home must be registered, but: we’ll automatically register your home with InterNACHI® within 30 days of performing the inspection, and before you contact InterNACHI® about an issue. We will pay for program registration at no cost to you.
  2. The program does not cover defects caused after the inspection or issues outside the scope of InterNACHI®’s Residential Standards of Practice.
  3. InterNACHI® will conduct its own inspection(s) and appraisal of the property to verify the claim and ensure the home is valued at no less than the sale price.
  4. Homes within HOAs may not be eligible if the HOA does not approve the sale or repairs.
  5. You have a duty to mitigate further damage by making reasonable repairs.

The “We’ll Buy Your Home” Guarantee does not apply to:

  1. Homes not used as primary residences (e.g., flips, rentals, vacation homes)
  2. Mobile homes or homes on leased land
  3. Homes with known issues not disclosed by the seller
  4. Homes with incomplete repairs or remodeling, or lacking a current Certificate of Occupancy
  5. Homes with unpermitted work
