Who is paying for it?
Participating agents who believes in pre-listing inspections to help sell their client’s house faster and for more money. They will refund the fee of the pre-listing inspection in order to gain a client.
Why would agent pay for it?
Agents are already paying tons of money for advertising and and leads. We already know that pre-listing inspections will sell houses faster and for more money. Now, not only they get these benefits but they gain a client.
What's the process?
Since it is starting, we don’t have many participating agents, if you can let the agents you know about it and that they can sign up on www.pre-listinginspection.com/agents that would speed things up. Check the agent page often and once there are some around your area then you can start promoting it.
Is this ethical?
You do everything as usual, get the contract signed, do the inspection, get paid, give the report and point them out to a site where participating agents are willing to refund them the pre-listing inspection fee if the seller decides to work with them. You are not referring any specific agents, you are not offering anything other than an opportunity for your client to get their inspection fee back.
Is this a special program?
No, it’s a marketing way to increase client acquisition for both inspectors and agents when using PreInspected.com or your own social media, ppc marketing.
How can I get started?
If you have not yet joined the PreInspected.com program go to www.pre-listinginspection.com/add-listing to add your company and an account will be created on PreInspected.com. You will now be able to upload reports and start getting leads for you and your agents. You can then market free pre-listing inspections to those leads to increase client acquisition for both you and the agent.
What if the agent doesn't want to pay?
When they add their profile on pre-listinginspection.com/agents, they agree and understand that they will be refunding the inspection fee in order to gain a new client. If somehow they decided to stop doing it and try to gain clients without paying, they will be removed and we will try to accommodate the client with another agent in their area who has integrity.
