The best way to leverage a home inspection

There is reward in taking an educated risk

Professional home inspections provide great benefits to realtor and estate agents that know how to leverage them effectively. Here are a few tips on how agents can generate more commission and increase their quality of customer service.

As an agent, it’s your duty to educate the customer on what a home inspection is. By educating your customer, it will alleviate and disperse any false expectations and myths surrounding the home inspection service and the sale of the home. The agent is meant to be the expert in this transaction so it’s important that they know how a routine home inspection goes and what it includes.

A home inspection is simply a visual evaluation of the overall condition of any home. That is needed and it’s important for a home to be assessed either before purchase or being listed on the market. Items that are not usually included in a home inspection are things like lawn sprinklers, cable TV, telephone wires, and installed alarm systems.

Most home inspection companies do offer specialist services in which things like swimming pools and Jacuzzi’s, out buildings, air testing, well water testing, and termite inspections are all included or can be added on to the pre-purchase/pre-listing home inspection service.

Once you have the completed inspection report, in your hand, go through it with the customer. The completed report will have lots of vital information included in it. If you go through the report with the customer it ensures that they understand what it’s all about and what needs done, it also shows that you as the agent have taken the time out to help them understand it.

As the agent you should do your best to be educated well on all that is involved with a home inspection, this will help you in providing a high level of service the type of services clients are looking for.
