As a real estate professional, it’s your job to guide your clients through the process of selecting and purchasing a new home.
From first-time buyers to seasoned shoppers, they’ll be depending on you to help them find their dream home. And while they’re sure to have their checklist of must-haves in hand—whether a big yard, open floor plan or two-car garage—they may be overlooking some crucial factors when considering purchasing a home.
A new survey from Esurance shows that many home owners aren’t nearly as savvy as they should be when it comes to home maintenance issues. With limited knowledge about recognizing and repairing issues relating to a home’s core systems, it’s not a stretch to assume that many potential buyers are overlooking these same issues when shopping for a new home.
Helping your clients see beyond the surface will not only help them find a home they won’t regret purchasing, it will also establish a valuable level of trust between you that they won’t soon forget. Armed with a foundational knowledge of home maintenance basics, they’ll be fully prepared to care for their new investment, and they’ll have you to thank for it.
