3 Things You Must Consider When Referring a Home Inspector

As a real estate agent, you’ve worked hard to earn the trust of the buyers and sellers that work with you.

When they approach you with the inevitable question: What home inspectors would you recommend?

You know that by referring a home inspector that you personally believe in, you increase the odds of creating the best overall experience for your clients.

If you don’t have a solid working relationship with a local, Colorado Springs home inspector right now or if you’re new to the real estate market, you may be wondering where to start in researching a reputable home inspector for your clients.

Here is a helpful list of some top factors to keep in mind:

1. Look for warranties that add more coverage for your clients.

You can also avoid the worry of a sticky situation later on by referring a home inspector that not only has a good reputation, but also backs their work by extensive warranties. For more details, check out the full list of coverages offered by AmPro’s standard warranties here.

If these seems out of the ordinary for the home inspectors with which you’ve worked, you’d be right. Not so at AmPro. We know that these coverages give homebuyers a peace of mind about life in their new home, while giving real estate agents the assurance that they won’t be dealing with upset clients that aren’t covered when things come up for their buyers once they are in the home.

Home inspections should be thorough and detailed, but they can never predict the future performance of every appliance or system in a home.

2. Recommend an inspector that carries adequate insurance

If you want to make sure that your clients receive great service and that no headaches come back your way after recommending a home inspector, here are a few extra things to keep on you radar.

Here are a few questions to ask:

What types insurance does the home inspector carry?

What level of insurance coverage does the inspector have?

3. Ask about guarantees offered by the home inspector

The vast majority of home inspectors write their reports and operate their business in a way that tries, as much as possible, to push liability away from themselves.

Most don’t offer any sort of warranty, much less a guarantee on their inspection.

Nonetheless, you’d be missing an opportunity for your clients if you didn’t ask:

What guarantees does the home inspector offer to back up their work?

On this note, AmPro offers an unmatched 90 Day Home Buyback Guarantee that is very unique for the Colorado home inspection market.
