Homebuyers, even in the hottest markets, are hungry for knowledge about their new home. And as always, a professional home inspection provides invaluable knowledge they can use right away and in the future. Now, however, it’s possible to expand that knowledge in ways that weren’t imaginable just a short time ago.
In a word, the greatest differentiator in home inspection today is technology. Technology allows advances in how the inspection is conducted and reported. For example, specialized cameras can produce an interactive report summary that enables the client to more easily see issues or areas of concern called out in the report. The interactive aspect of this feature means clients can pause and revisit areas in the entire home at their convenience, including both the interior and exterior. This gives them greater knowledge about the home’s details and condition.
Creating and providing a digital homeowner’s manual is also a reality made possible by new technology. With this feature, home appliances are screened for current recalls, and the homeowner is alerted should future recalls occur. Owner’s manuals, warranty information and much more are accessible via an app that puts everything the homeowner needs to troubleshoot, operate and maintain their home right at their fingertips.
Now more than ever, technology helps homebuyers get to know the home better, which means they’re more satisfied and confident clients.
