The Sellers Report™ this report will have all the maintenance records and any projects done to add value to the home. There is also a public link that can be used in the listing, but even more valuable, it can be given to the Real Estate Appraiser. This report is key in determining “condition” of the home and can impact the appraisal value a great deal. When the home sells for more, the Realtor® earns more! Here is a case study you can also share with them, about a agent who got 14/14 homes appraised above value, using Seller Report.

What is HomeBinder and why is my branding/information on this product when I didn’t request or purchase this product?
HomeBinder is an online platform designed to help the homeowner protect the value of their home through regular maintenance practices, management of professionals connected to the home, and creation of reports related to the home. You were added as the Agent of Record to the binder via one of our partners - usually the Lender or the Home Inspection company.
How much does HomeBinder cost my client?
HomeBinder is purchased for your client by the HomeBinder partner. There is never a charge for the binder for as long as the homeowner is in the home. HomeBinder will never share or sell your clients’ data.
What if my client does not close on the home or does not want the binder?
The Welcome Email provides a “No Thank You” option so the client can opt out of the binder. No information from the client is stored on the HomeBinder site.
What type of email communication will my clients receive, and can I see a sample?
In addition to the Welcome Email, each HomeBinder partner sets up maintenance reminders (usually 6-8 per year), and we send Recall emails for appliances when applicable. You may log into your Agent Profile, go to Settings, then Branding to send yourself sample copies of the three types of emails that go to clients.
What if I change from one brokerage to another? Do you charge me to change my profile?
