For as tough as finding a home is right now, maintaining the home and enjoying home ownership is nipping at its heels in terms of difficulty. As a trusted real estate agent, your Buyers will likely expect you to be there for them both during and after closing. Here are three ways to make home ownership more convenient for your clients.
1. Provide or recommend a Home Warranty Service Agreement
In this market, many Buyers face a troubling dilemma. After you manage to find them a house they love and win it, your Buyers may not have the means to address unexpected breakdowns around the home. In fact, according to a recent NPR piece, one of the biggest sources of buyer’s remorse is dealing with unexpected breakdowns.

You can make dealing with this common problem more convenient with a Home Warranty Service Agreement (i.e., home warranty) from 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10 HBW).
With 2-10 HBW’s new product, you can provide several standout benefits to your Buyers:
- A budgetary safety net against expensive, covered breakdowns
- Access to vetted, trustworthy Service Contractors
- Easy-to-understand invoices, which can reduce questions
2-10 HBW’s new product can also benefit you as an agent. With 24/7 account access, your Buyers have a convenient way to file claims, check coverage details, and access perks and programs. This can help you reduce client callbacks while building trust.
2. Provide a list of trustworthy service technicians
2-10 HBW can provide trustworthy Service Contractors for breakdowns to covered home systems and appliances. But there are countless services your Buyers may need that you can help them find that don’t fall under home warranty coverage.
For example, if your Buyers need an expert to mudjack a porch that’s no longer level, helping them find one can pay dividends for you. In fact, providing a list of trustworthy service technicians can help you succeed in two ways.
- It builds trust with clients by showing you care about them even after the sale. That can lead to more referrals.
- It helps you foster relationships with local professionals, which can expand your footprint.
So, for covered breakdowns to important systems or appliances, 2-10 HBW’s got your clients covered. And we have an article to help you compile lists of important professional services for your clients.
