5 reasons why an agent should attend to inspection
The realtor is the anchor of the real estate transaction.- Sometimes that includes a bit of hand holding with customers to make for a smooth sailing in what can sometimes be stressful situation.
Buyer and Seller expectations.- Many buyers and sellers expect that the agent will attend their inspection, particularly sellers who may be skeptical about allowing an inspector and buyer, basically two strangers all over their home for several hours.
Staying in the Loop.- It's essential that you know, hear, see and understand what the inspector saw, what he said, how he said it, what report says and the recommendations made. It helps you to prioritize the inspector's findings for your client so you can effectively walk him/her through the next process requesting repairs.
Professionalism & trust.- A quality professional is a reflection of an agent's own high level of professionalism. Forming a strong, professional and competent team, shows clients that the agents's professionalism extends to all aspects of the transaction.
Disclosure.- Attending the home inspection is a great opportunity for agents to affirm that they are interested in full disclosure.
