Why Realtors should partner with a roofing company

Nothing can slow a home sale going through for a real estate agent like an inspection that uncovers needed roof repair or replacement. You’ll go from ‘sign right here,’ to ‘we’ll get someone out to repair that,’ faster than you can say ‘water damage.’

Avoid more delays than necessary by establishing a partnership with a trusted roofing company. A relationship with a roofer you have on speed dial. This will allow you to offer cost-conscious and time-efficient options for needed repairs that hold up closings. Not only saving time and money, partnering with a roofing company will help you work through sticky situations like who pays for what and how to negotiate with both the seller and the buyer. Here’s some other benefits to consider:

A roofing partner can give a second opinion.

Typically, you’ll reach out to your roofing partner once your inspector has already determined the home you’re trying to sell needs roof work. That’s means when you call your trusted roofer, he or she will actually be checking the work of the inspector. They’ll give you a second opinion.  They will offer a fresh perspective that you can pass along to your buyers and sellers.

Here are some tips on how to inspect the roof yourself. 

The roofing partners can make repairs needed quickly.

As a real estate agent, you have a pre-existing relationship, once your roofer has inspected the needed work, they can jump in with repairs as soon as everyone’s schedule allows. You won’t need to search for a company or wonder if you can trust the work. Building a relationship means you know who to call first and you can trust the work will be quality.

You’ve got built-in free estimates.

Have questions?  If you have a partnership with a roofing company, call them when you have questions. Call them for a free inspection on a re roof or roof repair. You might need a roofer to give an estimate as the seller is ready to put a house on the market. Some roofing companies will give free estimates, but having a partnership guarantees free estimates — and free answers to any of your questions.

Partner roofing companies can speed up closing with quick and timely reports.

When sellers complete repairs on a roof for a sale to go through, closing companies require proof that repairs have been made. A partner roofing company can provide a detailed report of completed work as soon as the repairs are completed. At Turner Roofing, it is crucial for the sale of the home to be completed.

Overall, a roofing partner makes real estate agents’ lives easier.

Partnering with a roofing company can help you get:

  • second opinions
  • estimates
  • completed work
  •  faster sales for your clients
