More and more real estate professionals are encouraging home buyers to invest in a professional home inspection before purchasing a property. The reason is simple – a quality real estate inspection done by a professional home inspector is to the advantage of everyone involved in a transaction. Buyers learn about the property up front and can proceed with greater confidence and peace of mind. Furthermore, sellers who’ve had a pre-listing inspection may sell their homes more quickly and with fewer surprises. Finally, real estate professionals enjoy more efficient transactions with less chance for unpleasant and potentially costly post-closing problems.
Signature Home Inspection offers these and other benefits to real estate professionals:
Reduced Liability – Signature home inspectors carry extensive Errors and Omissions insurance and General Liability insurance, and we offer agent indemnification coverage to help protect real estate professionals in the event a claim is brought against them solely for recommending Signature Home Inspection. Real estate agents must have a written agreement with Signature Home Inspection in order to qualify for coverage, along with their own Errors & Omissions insurance policy. Contact your local Signature Home Inspection office for more details.
Less Buyer Discomfort – Whether the property your client is considering is old or new, our professional home inspectors help provide peace of mind that the home is live-in ready.
Curtailed Buyer’s Remorse – Many home buyers believe that a brand-new home is a worry-free investment. But even the best home builders make mistakes, and that’s where Signature Home Inspection can help. Our impartial inspectors can conduct a new home inspection that may disclose items in need of repair, therefore helping to reduce buyer’s remorse and life interruption after the purchase.
Professional Image and Credibility – When a real estate professional provides potential home buyers with our comprehensive Signature Home Inspection report, it tells customers that the firm and its sales associates are working in the best interests of both the buyer and seller. It adds credibility and professionalism to the home buying/selling transaction.
More Sales – The home is priced closer to its value, which can help improve the speed and likelihood of a sale.
Less Negotiation – Prior acknowledgement of any defects that are already reflected in the sales price may often leave buyers with fewer objections.
Reduced Listing Time – A home inspection benefits all parties involved by providing insight into the condition of the home, thereby helping to reduce the overall listing time of your client’s property.
