I have some exciting news to share about a deal I’ve negotiated with Porch’s CEO, Matt Ehrlichman.
Here are the highlights:
Every InterNACHI member gets to offer the Porch Home Assistant for free to their customers. I’ve negotiated this to now include $100 in handyman services that you’ll be able to provide to every customer. Additionally, InterNACHI members only will be able to get InterNACHI’s “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee for free for every customer – sponsored by Porch. We are going to start with making the free “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee available to all InterNACHI members using ISN and every InterNACHI member in Texas and Georgia (initially, until we hire additional InterNACHI staffers to deal with the increased Buy Back volume). We do plan to roll this out nationwide, but if you don’t use ISN and until our “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee is available in your state or province for free, I’ve negotiated for you to get a 2nd $100 in Handyman Services to give to each of your customers.
I know there are a lot of open questions about Porch, particularly because people want to make sure their security and data policies are good. It’s the reason I invested in Porch. I’m now able to ensure no data is being shared. If Porch is going to be a partner in our industry, I wanted to make sure I have some oversight and everything looks to be all good at this point.
If you are still an ASHI member and haven’t yet advanced up to InterNACHI, you cannot get the “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee unless you first join InterNACHI (sorry ASHI members), but Porch has a 90 Day Inspection Guarantee they can offer you instead. If you miss something on an inspection, this offer has Porch fixing the problem up to the cost of the inspection. Obviously, InterNACHI’s “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee is much more compelling to real estate agents and consumers and so now is the time for you few, remaining ASHI holdouts to upgrade to InterNACHI membership.
If you’re an ISN member, log into your account, go to Settings and opt into Porch, and select the Buy Back Guarantee to get this going. If you’re not an ISN member, sign up for the “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee on InterNACHI’s site and select for Porch to sponsor it for you. If you still have some questions before activating, you can post them here on this InterNACHI message board thread, and Porch’s CEO Matt Ehrlichman will answer them.
Our goal at InterNACHI is to all but eliminate the financial risk of buying a home. Toward that end we aim to have every real estate transaction in North America include InterNACHI’s “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee.
