“Informative Inspection” versus traditional “Inspection Contingency”

When looking to buy a home during a seller’s market, bidding wars resulting from limited inventory have seen many homebuyers opting to forgo home inspections altogether, so the prospective buyer’s offers are more attractive. So, how do our clients get the best of both worlds – make a more appealing offer and ensure your clients get a full home inspection before making a huge purchase? The devil is in the details.

How does an informative inspection differ from an inspection contingency?

During accelerated housing market/bidding war conditions, many sellers are hesitant to accept any offers that require a traditional home inspection. But you can change the offer language to an ‘informative inspection’ instead of the typical ‘inspection contingency’ so the seller understands your clients will be getting a full professional inspection, but that the transaction is NOT contingent on the results of the inspection or any information that the buyer discovers. In other words, the deal is firm – the buyer is waiving their right to cancel the transaction based on the outcome of the informative inspection. In addition, the buyer won’t be asking the seller to pay for any issues that may be uncovered during the inspection.

An informative inspection still empowers the buyer to better understand the property and exactly what they’re purchasing. After all, the value a buyer derives from a Prism Informative Inspection includes:

  • Information that empowers better planning
  • Mitigation of risk for unexpected surprises
  • Full disclosure on the property so they can prioritize and budget upon possession
  • Inspection report acts as an instruction manual for the new home
  • Education on how the property operates
  • Complimentary technical advice from their inspector for as long as they own their home
