Folks, can someone help me with presentation topis for home inspection issue. I am new to the business and going to do a presentations in next month, and the realtors are asking to talk about current relevent home inspection issue rather then my prices or packages. They are not interested in Mold, Asbestos, Oil talk, Alminum wiring, 60 amps, UFFI and Vermiculite related issues.
I am wondering if someone have any suggestions/recommendation about what to dissucss for 10 minutes in there meeting…
Introduce yourself. Do not use any lingo suggesting you are a greenhorn.
Remind them you are important because it shifts liability from the realtor to the home inspector.
Take a sample of a good report that contains no alarming lingo.
Do not cite code or speculate in your report.
Open the floor to questions. Only the agents know what is an issue to them. There is not a one size fits all presentation. Let the agent tell you what their concerns are and try your best to ease their minds.
Believe you are the best inspector for them and it will show.
Start with smaller offices to bust your cherry and then move on to the heavy hitters.
You will not capture the entire office…you should make it your goal to get to at least one of these agents and do such an outstanding job, that word gets around.
Do a sloppy job or skunk a deal…word gets around too.
And always follow up. Don’t go to an office and think that one visit is sufficient. Make your face known in the office.
This only applies to listing agents, as buyers agents have no influence on this. Listing agents have little control. Otherwise I would not have found turds in toddler potties, sex toys in all sorts of places, people having sex and the list goes on.
You can tell them that as home inspectors we show our clients how to maintain their homes. We are not there to kill the deal, but to educate the buyer on how best to maintain the home. You could explain the value of a seller having their home inspected before putting it on the market.
All the best
