Dear Home Seller:


I am Sam Benson of HomeSpec Residential Inc. I am writing to encourage you to contact me about inspecting your home before any more potential buyers tour it.  The advantages of having it inspected now are many:

          You can have me, a certified Inter-NACHI inspector, do the inspection rather than be at the mercy of the buyer's choice of inspector.

          You can schedule the inspection with me at your convenience.

          I might be able to alert you to any items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.

          You can assist me during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's inspection.

          You can correct any misstatements in your inspection report before I generate it.

          The report can help you realistically price your home if problems exist.

          The report can help you substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.

          My report will reveal problems ahead of time which:

o          might make your home show better.

o          gives you time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.

o          permits you to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.

o          removes over-inflated buyer procured estimates from any future negotiations.

o          My report might alert you to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.

o          My report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to your potential buyers.

o          A seller inspection permits a clean home inspection report to be used as a marketing tool.

o          A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on your part.

o          My report might relieve prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before they walk away from your home.

o          A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour renegotiations.

o          My report might encourage your buyer to waive the inspection contingency.

o          Your deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer's inspection unexpectedly reveals a problem, last minute.

o          My report provides you with full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.


I would like to talk with you in person to explain how I can help streamline your real estate sale.  And of course I always stand ready to inspect the home you are buying as well.  Please contact me.
