Are You An Agent Who GETS IT?
As a buyers or sellers
agent why should you want a thorough and objective home inspection from
Pelican State Inspection?
The reason for a
buyer’s agent wanting a thorough and objective home inspection is obvious.
It will protect the buyer. It can bring to light issues big and small. In
today’s market most buyers barely have enough money to buy their dream home
and the certainly don’t have extra money to repair surprises that can come
up after the purchase. Let’s face it, some homes really need a lot of work. A quality home inspection can bring repair issues
to the buyer’s attention. Some deals may fall apart because of the condition
of the home, but if it happens your client will be thankful to you for
recommending a through Home Inspection Report from Pelican State Inspection. You just saved your client money and
helped them stay away from a house that might not right for them. As a
real estate agent you have earned your clients trust, future business, and
referrals. A part of every home sale is to build the future of your
business. A happy client is a return client.
Seller’s agents should
also want a detailed home inspection, but the reason is less obvious. A
seller’s failure to disclose problems, repairs they have made, or other
similar misrepresentations are a large source of lawsuits in the real estate
industry today. Most sellers do not intentionally misrepresent. Many sellers simply
forget about problems or repairs from many years ago. A detailed inspection
can bring to light these issues before it is too late.
