Give Your Listings the Platinum Advantage!

Give Your Listings the Platinum Advantage! We announced our new Certified Pre-Owned Home Program launching in April.  Platinum Home Warranty and Advantage Inspection Service, two of our corporate partners, have developed a strong tool for you to use during your listing presentation that will separate you from your competition.  Together they have created a new “Certified Pre-Owned Home Program” that will help real estate agents add value to their listings and gain an edge on the competition. This is a pivotal moment in real estate where we are quickly changing into a buyer’s market.  For listing agents and their sellers this means more inventory, more competition, longer selling times and related issues that arise because of those lengthened times on the market. A Platinum Advantage ”Certified Pre-Owned Home”  will go through a comprehensive inspection prior to being put on the market. The inspection will uncover anything from potential deficiencies with any major mechanical systems in the home as well as termite issues. These deficiencies will be readily listed comprehensively by the seller, earning the home a “Certified Pre-Owned Home” status which will greatly reduce a buyer’s anxiety about potential unknowns.  Buyers will also receive $150 credit on their buyer warranty policy by choosing to stay with Platinum. Sellers benefit as well, by offering a home that stands out above the competition with its excellent condition both cosmetically and mechanically.  Combine this with the Platinum Home Warranty package during the listing period and sellers will greatly reduce expensive repairs in the future or canceled offers.  To participate in this great program sellers must remain with their HomeSmart listing agent in order for the package to apply.  Buyers must hold their warranty through Platinum to be eligible for the buyers discount and termite warranty. Program Details: During your listing presentation you’ll present the benefits of the program to the seller.  Prior to the listing going “live” the following will be put in place*: -A Special Warranty Sellers’ package from Platinum Home Warranty -A 500 point home inspection and termite check by Advantage Inspection Services -One year termite warranty for buyer (if home has no evidence of termite infestation) -Preventative termite treatment (optional) -A sign rider and certificate at your listing indicating that the home is pre-certified Are you ready to add value to your listings?
