Home buyers need real estate agents more than ever to lay the groundwork for a happy homeownership experience. This National Homeownership Month, combine your expertise with support and services from 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10) to help your clients achieve their dreams and help yourself stand out in the market.

Set Expectations for Your Clients

According to a 2024 survey from Clever Real Estate, 82% of home buyers have regrets about their purchase. Many of these regrets revolve around mismatched expectations:

  • The upfront and ongoing costs of homeownership
  • Compromising on their home purchase
  • Feeling like their agent isn’t doing enough to help them

To address these issues, you need to set clear expectations for your clients right off the bat.

For example, many buyers underestimate how much they’ll end up paying for a home. Educating them on the reality of your individual market can help them prepare for what’s ahead.

Once you’ve prepared them for what may be a tougher road than they expected, you can guide them toward a more successful pursuit of homeownership with help from 2-10.

Addressing the Money Issue

Affordability is still a huge challenge. However, there are some ways you can help buyers address some affordability issues with help from 2-10.

For example, according to the Clever survey, more than 80% of buyers asked for a seller concession, including a lower price and funds for repairs.

While it may not be possible to get a lower price for the home, you can help buyers address repair costs with a Home Service Plan (Home Warranty) from 2-10.

In fact, a home warranty is the #1 home-selling incentive of 2024. Sellers are willing to offer Buyers a home warranty, which can help reduce the costs of breakdowns to major systems and appliances.

You can help your home buyers address a common financial pain point by bringing a 2-10 Home Warranty to the closing table.

Enhancing Your Reputation With a 2-10 Home Warranty

Your reputation is a big part of your success. So, the fact that 54% of buyers claimed that their agent cared more about making a deal than representing their best interests may be jarring.

Agents who go the extra mile in representing their clients’ interests can stand out among home buyers. With 2-10, you may be able to help them address one of the biggest sources of buyer’s remorse: the ongoing costs of maintenance and addressing unexpected breakdowns.

When a major system or appliance breaks down, everything grinds to a halt. When it happens to someone who already just spent a huge sum of money to buy a home, it can make home buyers desperate for help.

A 2-10 Home Warranty can help offer home buyers the help they need. It gives them access to local, independent contractors to diagnose their problem. It also could help vastly reduce the costs of addressing breakdowns when they need it most.

Offering a 2-10 Home Warranty can help you stand out as an agent that goes the extra mile. Proving a proactive solution to a major pain point is a powerful way to show that you’re representing your clients’ bests interests while still helping you close deals successfully.
