I’m happy to announce that after good early results and feedback from inspectors who are providing the Porch Home Assistant and $200 of Handyman Services to their customers, we are making this available in more states.
On top of any inspector using ISN, we initially made the “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee available for free (sponsored by Porch) to all InterNACHI inspectors in Texas and Georgia who are partnering with Porch. As of now, we are now making this same free “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee offer available in California and Florida.
Just click here to sign-up and then upload each inspection here for it to automatically have the “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee applied and to get a Home Assistant Gold and $200 of Handyman Services for free. Email me if you want me to open your state next. Fastreply@nachi.org I’m going to expand this program across all of North America just like I do with everything.
Also, a couple of things I want to clear up based on message board comments:
Homeowners really like getting the $200 of Handyman Services and a Home Assistant to help them with their move. They just do. The feedback we are seeing is consistently clear: They like having all of their trash/gas/electricity/water transferred over, etc. There hasn’t yet been a single “No Complaint Guarantee” filed, and no checks have been taken off my wall.
One of the reasons that Home Assistant calls the homeowner is that part of what Porch provides is a 3rd party review service for the inspector. If a homeowner isn’t happy, this helps to make sure you are in front of it before they post on Google or Yelp. If they are happy, it gets posted online to help you get more business. If agents ever ask you why someone needs to call the homeowner, just let them know that you have an independent 3rd party collect reviews to make sure you are doing great work, and if the homeowner needs any other help with their move during that call, they’ll get help.
There was a concern if the Home Assistant will introduce a different inspector in the future when the homeowner needs an inspection done. No. Forever the Porch Home Assistant refers all inspections back to the original InterNACHI inspector. They will even ask a year from now if the homeowner wants an annual inspection performed by an InterNACHI member to help get us more business for InterNACHI members.
Even if you turn on Porch in ISN and you are an InterNACHI member, Porch doesn’t even get the inspection report ever sent to them except if the homeowner provides it directly to their Home Assistant. If you are an InterNACHI member, your data is safe.
Porch has agreed that it is not selling leads to InterNACHI inspectors at all. Free leads forever (for members of InterNACHI).
These are things to offer to your customers to help you stand out. And now the “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee will be included free for every InterNACHI member working with Porch in CA, FL, TX, and GA. If you are in one of those four states you can sign up here to take advantage of these offers. I’ll roll the Porch/ISN deal out in more states soon.
And as has always been the case, you can participate in just the “We’ll Buy Your Home Back” Guarantee](https://www.nachi.org/buy) on your own without ISN or Porch involvement if that is what you want. It is and has been available as a stand-alone program in all of the U.S. and Canada and will continue to be.
Planet InterNACHI… resistance is futile.
