Home Inspection Contracts – Manage Risk ($50 value)

Nationally recognized home inspector attorney Joe Denneler adds a layer of protection to your inspection business by providing inspection contracts written to the home inspection standards applicable and specific to your state. There are many factors to consider, including state and local regulations, association standards and consumer protection laws. If you’re using a generic agreement, or one patched together over many years, it may have elements that don’t include or conflict with superseding state and local requirements. These agreements are written based on existing state home inspector standards of practice and regulations where applicable. In non-regulated states, they are written to conform to the standards of practice used by the inspector. OREP insureds/members enjoy a $50 discount on this essential service. This service is part of the OREP Professional Support Network. Email Isaac Peck for your discount code.

“I collected many estimates but the combination of value, flexibility and knowledge was unsurpassed by OREP.” —Henry Toman, 1st American Home Inspections, LLC

 

Home Inspection Warranties – Increase Business, Reduce Headaches (at no cost)

The 90-Day Home Warranty distinguishes you from your competition when you include it free with your home inspections. Sometimes you only get one conversation with a potential client or one click to your website to close the deal. Here’s how to make you and your business the obvious choice for homebuyers. A warranty also makes nuisance problems go away. The small, warranty-related issues that you are often forced to deal with are taken off your plate and handled by professionals, so you spend your time and energy inspecting, not fixing client problems. You can enjoy more business with fewer headaches and at no cost to you because the OREP insured price is low enough ($12.50) to be added to your inspection fee without notice.

"The warranty program fits squarely in line with our approach to business. They stand behind everything they say and the commitment really shows.” —Tom S. (Home Inspector)
