Certified Pre-Owned Homes From Patton Property Group at Keller Williams.


CPO Homes - what it means

CPO = Certified Pre-Owned 

Home Inspection, Appraisal, Home Warranty is in progress or completed. Check with listing agent for current status.

Inspection
Imagine purchasing a home that has an inspection. All the issues that arise on MOST homes are now unlikely to be a problem. YOU know going in, if there are any issues with the home as determined by a
licensed home inspector.



Old-fashioned real estate
The average inspection turns up 12+ items that need repair. At this point, you as the buyer will have paid for an inspection, and now have to renegotiate the terms of your offer. 

Homes with a full CPO take a lot of these issues off the table. You are still welcome to have your own inspection, of course, as well as order your own appraisal if you wish.

Appraised for your peace of mind
Imagine the peace of mind you will have, purchasing a home that has an appraisal in place. We have been using this approach since 2011, and only one of these homes has not appraised when the buyer attempts to get a loan. We sell more homes than any other team in the mountains, so this says something about our approach!

Now you are purchasing a home that is appraised, and has an inspection for your perusal. A full CPO home also offers a home warranty, to take care of most issues that would arise during the first 12 months of your ownership. 

The owners of this home have
decided to do all of this preparation upfront for you. 

Let's change the real estate process together - and make buying and selling a home closer to what it should be - FUN!

  1. This makes sense for all sellers. As a buyer's agent, I have seen transactions go smoother when the seller has done their homework upfront. I have also seen transactions go south very quickly when the inspections come back with surprises. As we know, once a seller has signed a contract, they have very few options to back out, if any. On the other hand, a buyer can walk for any or no reason during the due diligence period. I would imagine this could give a seller piece of mind when choosing to go under contract and turn other buyers away. Tyler Elstrom- Buyer Specialist- 828-337-2730

  2. As a buyer's agent finding homes that are certified are a real bonus. As quickly as homes are going under contract in Asheville having a seller that has done their homework can be the difference between a buyer choosing one home over an other. Surprises on inspections always create doubt in a buyers mind as to the integrity of a home. Home warranties give the buyer the peace of mind.

    The value of a seller having an appraisal before listing is paramount. Values can be different from neighborhood to neighborhood and there are many factors that determine the "current market value" of a home. The majority of buyers have to qualify for loans and then the home must be appraised. If a home doesn't appraise for the contract price because the home was listed outside the range of its current market price, that is a deal breaker unless the buyer is willing to come out of pocket for the difference in contract price and the appraised price. That is simply not an option to many buyers. A renegotiation of the contract and possible termination of said transaction often occurs.

    Both Sellers and Buyers benefit by having a CPO home for many reasons. If you'd like to discuss all of the advantages of a CPO home give me a call. Reese Morgani, Buyer Specialist, 828-545-5880

  3. Patton Property Group is in a class by itself with our program of Certified Preowned HOmes. As a Buyer's Agent, I have so much more confidence showing a home that has no SURPRISES. This makes purchasing home so much less stressful for my clients. I am grateful that Rowena has put this program together for both our Seller's and Buyer's.

  4. What a great program. Why didn't someone think of this a long time ago?
    It takes a lot of the stress, worry and unknown out of the equation. Buyers can now make offers with confidence, knowing they won't have to start their search over because of unknown issues.

  5. Before buying your dream home it is very important to make sure that is this home is perfect according to your requirement or not, or to find out defects in home, for all these purposes home inspection is very important because as we know buy a property is not a very easy task and this is a long term financial transaction so it is very important to find out all the defects and drawbacks of home before buying. For this purpose you need a perfect home inspector. For more information you can visit:-

  6. This is a simple and terrific way to sell your home quickly! Also, when looking at homes, it's great to have the inspection, home warranty and appraisal in place. It takes guessing out of the equation! Gwen Bowers

  7. This process takes a lot of the guessing out of buying and selling a home. Why not already have an inspection and appraisal so that you know the actual value of the home you are purchasing or selling?

  8. This is the first time that I heard about this warranty, will it depend on the conditions that the buyer will have for the owner?

  9. The home inspector should be able to provide all professional history and should have some referrals, or have more qualified inspectors to help or assist. I consulted Redondo Beach home inspection for my newly constructed home.

  10. Takes all of the mystery and guesswork out of the home buying process and eliminates the "surprises" that can shatter the idea of someone's dream home. Buyers have all the information they need up front and can be rest assured that they are buying a home of great value and quality!

  11. We talk about this on the radio show all the time. It just makes sense. You know what your house is worth, you know what needs to be fixed, and you provide the extra confidence that comes along with a home warranty. It is selling homes, made easy!

  12. After watching this, I would never want to buy or sell a home any other way. Very straightforward and informative.

  17. The CPO program that we offer really benefits both sides of the home purchasing process. Sellers become more knowledgeable about their home and buyers feel more secure about purchasing.

  18. The CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) program is unique to Rowena Patton's All Star team here in the mountains. The program benefits sellers and buyers, it is a proactive way to remove objections during the process before they happen. This helps make the process smoother and gives a much clearer picture of a property giving both buyers and sellers peace of mind.

  19. The CPO program takes so much of the worry out of buying a home. Buyers know what they are buying and Sellers have a much better idea about their house before an offer comes through

  20. CPO is the way to go! You can't go wrong with it! Take out the risks of buying a home! Get your warranty and get a Certified PreOwned Property! No one else is doing this!
