Around here, sellers don't care about pre-listing inspections. Smart buyers don't trust them anyway, so I don't see this going anywhere, but good luck just the same.

Pre-Listing inspections do sell houses faster and for more due to the lack of negotiation and they get more offers. If people have to shell out $500 each to get a home inspection before they submit an offer and aren’t guaranteed to get the house, you’ll likely get fewer offers. Fewer offers likely means a lower selling price. There are a million other reasons that have been posted a million time about the benefits of pre-listing inspections but not everyone will want to rely on it anymore than just a guide.

Perhaps all the comments, criticisms, praises I read here of what the outcome could be,
who (or how many) will truly benefit.
Consider signing up so we can review the results over time.

Don't get me wrong. I am a firm believer in listing inspections. Get the issues out, full disclosure, less hassle and negotiations. I have had Realtors agree it is a great program, but they will not pay for the inspection.
