Florida Wind Mitigation Inspections... Significance for the Realtor Community
Six out of ten Florida homeowners already qualify for a discount on their homeowner's insurance policy without doing anything other than having an inspection and filing a Wind Mitigation Certificate with their current insurance company... What does that fact mean to the Realtor community?
Simple... You can improve your relationship with your clients by helping them save up to 40% on the cost of their homeowner's insurance policy. Lower insurance costs on homes you have listed can be used as a unique selling point to attract buyers, while wind mitigation inspections performed in conjunction with a standard home inspection can over the lifetime of the certificate return much more than the cost of all inspection procedures performed.
Information gleaned from a wind mitigation inspection report performed during the listing process could alert the savvy Real Estate agent to conditions which could impinge the easy sale of a home and help screen the best listings, thus saving precious marketing resources.
Today the Realtor who is seeking every edge in an attempt to gain market share and provide the very best service to their clients would be wise to incorporate wind mitigation inspections into their checklist for both buyers and sellers. It is a win-win solution you can't afford pass up.
