The OC Certified Home™ Marketing Option
While not a requirement, We can market your home as a traditional resale or we can enhance Your Homes salability by marketing it as a OC Certified Home™ at no additional sales commission. SELLERS who choose the OC Certified Home™ typically NET MORE.
Consider the difference between a typical ‘used car’ and a Certified Pre-Owned Automobile. Which do You have more confidence in? We’ve learned that both the Seller and Buyer benefit when they go into escrow with their eyes open.
HAS THIS HAPPENED TO YOU, OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW?
You’ve listed your home and a buyer makes an offer. To negotiate a mutually acceptable offer, you and your real estate agent determine your “bottom line” by calculating your selling costs.
The bottom line is the net amount you will walk away with from your sale. You and the buyer come to terms. You relax knowing your home is sold.
Then, a few days later, the nightmare begins with a phone call from your agent informing you the buyer wants to have your home INSPECTED by a third party.
The inspector will need to schedule several hours to turn your home inside out, so he can report everything that is not quite up to par to the buyer. You discover that if problems are found and you refuse to fix them, the buyers can cancel their contract. On the other hand, if you agree to fix and repair the home to make the buyer happy, you will probably give away a great deal of the money you thought you were going to net on the sale.
At every turn, more surprises. People are chipping away at the money you thought you had made on your home. Wouldn’t it make better business sense to know in advance what all your costs are instead of finding out after you agree with the buyer on a price? Of course it does. It's Simply A Smarter Way To Sell!
SO, WHAT IS AN OC CERTIFIED HOME?
At the core of our philosophy is the fact that home sellers and buyers benefit when they know what to expect “upfront” instead of “at closing.” Simply stated, a OC Certified Home is the result of a typical resale home undergoing an intensive, 3rd party 323-point inspection which includes, but is not limited to, the physical condition of the home, other critical inspections where applicable and a review of the preliminary title report and HOA information.
Important problem areas are identified, thereby allowing the home to be certified based on standards established by OC. This is all done before the home is placed on the market and before a listing price is established on your home.
Once sold, the OC Certified Home is delivered to the buyer with a 12-Month Home Protection Plan. Again, NO SURPRISES!
OC Certified Homes Are Seller-Friendly
Unlike ordinary resale homes, a OC Certified
Home is simply the highest quality resale home
on the market-guaranteed. And, if you’re selling,
that matters. Sellers enjoy the following
More money. Buyers are willing to offer more because they know they’re getting a quality home.
“Inspect First, No Surprises”. Sellers will keep the money they expected in their pockets.
Confidence and knowledge of your home’s condition give you and your OC Representative the necessary conviction to ask for – and receive – top dollar for your home.
Competitive edge. While your neighbors are trying to sell their standard used home in the typical way, you increase the chance of buyers competing for your OC Certified Home.
By identifying and correcting the home’s problem areas before the sale, you can negotiate from a “position of strength.”
Peace Of Mind And Confidence. Priceless.
The bottom line: With a OC Certified Home, whether you’re a buyer or seller, you know we’ve minimized the surprises. That’s priceless.

A Better Investment For Buyers
Each home has passed an intensive 3rd party 323-point inspection by an OC Approved Provider
Covered in the inspection are all major systems including, but not limited to, the physical condition of the home, other critical inspections where applicable and a review of the preliminary title report and HOA information.
OC Certified Homes are sold with a 12-Month Home Protection Plan that covers most of the major systems.
Never A Compromise On Quality
Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. That’s why OC is so selective with the comprehensive details of the inspection and home protection plan. If an important system or appliance is not right, we want to know about it. Plain and simple.
So, remember, if you want to net more from your home, make it worth more. Make it a OC Certified Home.
You can purchase a typical home, and take your chances. Or, you can buy an OC Certified Home, and enjoy Peace Of Mind.
