Sellers can schedule the inspections at seller's convenience with little effort on the part of agents.

 Sellers can assist inspectors during the inspections, something normally not done during buyer's inspections.

 Sellers can have inspectors correct any misstatements in the reports before they are generated.

 The reports help sellers see their homes through the eyes of a critical, third-party, thus making sellers more realistic about asking price.

 Agents are alerted to any immediate safety issues found, before other agents and potential buyers tour the home.

 Repairs made ahead of time might make homes show better.

 Reports hosted online entice potential buyers to tour the homes.

 The reports provide third-party, unbiased opinions to offer to potential buyers.

 Clean reports can be used as marketing tools to help sell the homes.

 The reports might relieve prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.

 Seller inspections eliminate buyer's remorse that sometimes occurs just after an inspection.

 Seller inspections reduce the need for negotiations and 11th-hour renegotiations.

 Seller inspections relieve the agent of having to hurriedly procure repair estimates or schedule repairs.

 The reports might encourage buyers to waive their inspection contingencies.

 Deals are less likely to fall apart the way they often do when buyer's inspections unexpectedly reveal problems, last minute. 

 Reports provide full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
