Realty Resources: 4 Business Contacts Every Realtor Need

Written by Posted On Friday, 05 May 2017 19:09

Selling real estate requires that agents have a list of trustworthy contacts. These contacts include professionals who are able to make critical repairs, perform inspections and get the house in good working order for prospective buyers. Consider these four key types of business contacts that every real estate agent should have.

Radon Testers and Mitigation Providers
Many parts of the country have naturally high levels of radon. Radon is a gas that seeps into a house through tiny cracks or gaps in the foundation, slab or windows. This gas has no color or odor. It emits radiation that is absorbed into your body through your lungs. A home should be tested for radon. A real estate agent should have a connection with a radon testing and mitigation service provider to protect buyers from exposure to this gas.

Roofing Contractors
Issues with a home's roofing system are common discoveries during a real estate transaction. A roofing contractor contact is important to real estate agents so that a prompt roof inspection can be performed. Some companies, like Stevens Roofing Corporation, know how important a timely inspection can be. A roofing contractor can also make timely and thorough repairs in order to facilitate a transaction and have a home in good condition at the time of the sale.

Pest Inspectors
The last thing a home buyer wants to deal with is a surprise infestation of mice, termites or some other pest. Real estate agents should have a licensed, bonded and insured pest inspector and control service in their list of contacts. A pest inspection identifies many different types of pests, including wasps, bees, and carpenter ants. If an infestation is detected, the treatment process can begin. 

House Cleaners
A house should not be listed for sale if it smells bad, is dirty or has clutter from the owners. A professional team of trustworthy house cleaners is critical for every real estate agent. An efficient cleaning crew can clean up a house in a day or two, allowing for the quick listing of the home. Buyers will appreciate a house that is clean, free of odors and has no clutter.

With this list of important contacts, real estate agents can ensure that every transaction goes as smoothly as possible. Unexpected discoveries such as infestations or a roof leak can be promptly dealt with when the agent has dependable contacts ready to provide services. Each of these contacts offers an important type of service that is essential to a quick sale and a great sales price for a property.
