What makes a home SG Certified?

Prior to putting a home on the market, a Seven Gables real estate advisor works with a seller to complete the following requirements:

  • Physical Inspection
  • Termite Inspection
  • Preliminary Title Report
  • Cost of Repairs per physical inspection reviewed by a third-party company
  • Roof Inspection (If recommended by physical inspection)
  • Pool Inspection (If recommended by physical inspection)
  • Lateral Sewer Line Inspection (Properties 20+ years old)
  • Natural Hazard Disclosure
  • Buyer Home Warranty
  • Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Detectors Installed
  • Water Heaters Properly Strapped
  • Complete Disclosure Package
  • Permit History
  • Clue Report (Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange)

Once a Seven Gables listing has been certified, an SG Certified Seal will be branded across all marketing channels including property signs, printed & digital marketing materials and the property website.

Why choose to certify your home with SG Certified?

  • Attract Qualified Buyers: Buyers are more likely to consider homes when they have all of the facts. The more knowledgeable a buyer is about a home, the more confident they will feel in making a solid, well thought-out offer.
  • A Stress-free Process: Laying out all of the facts up front eliminates surprises and paves the way for a smooth transaction.
  • Better Prepared: Identifying needed repairs before putting a house on the market allows sellers time to get competitive bids and save money.
  • Confidence: A SG Certified home gives a seller assurance that their home is ready for a quick and smooth sale.

  • A Stress-free Process: Getting all of the facts up front eliminates surprises and paves the way for a smooth transaction.
