This is a marketing plan. They offer a slew of services to their clients. CB has taken home inspections off of their list of Concierge-style services. I just became an “authorized” inspection company. The criteria was training, certs, and experience. Add to that the ability to indemnify CB in the event of a lawsuit, and a signed agreement. I modified the agreement so it was no longer one-sided. They agreed and were quite nice about it.


You will see more and more of these "bundled" services down the line. Some home buyers will go for the package and some will not. This was born out of their relocation package, which handles most issues for the client. YHD Foxton is trying to do something similar here in NY/NJ.
