Resources For Our Agents

Providing Assets for Our Local Agents in South Richmond and Surrounding Areas

At NPI South Richmond, we truly value the relationships we create with our agents. Here are a few valuable, free resources for you and your clients that demonstrate our appreciation. From our 120-Day Warranty, a 200% Guarantee, 5 Free CE Courses for Agents, and more, we want this to be your One-Stop-Shop for all your home inspection needs.

 

1. Buyer's Inspections
Before buyers close on their new home, an NPI homebuyer’s inspection sheds light on hundreds of a home’s most important components. From the roof and furnace to plumbing and foundation, our residential inspectors take detailed notes on the condition of the property, giving our clients the information they need to make the best home-buying decision and prepare for future maintenance.

2. Pre-Sell Inspections
Getting an inspection before a home hits the market can help you sell faster and save money. Pre-listing inspections also let you know which parts of a home to fix before they become deal breakers for potential buyers. With a home seller’s inspection, homeowners won’t be taken by surprise by a major issue before they sell their home. A thorough NPI inspection report included in a home’s disclosure documents can improve bargaining power.

3. Radon and Mold Inspections
Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas and the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US, according to the Surgeon General. Radon can enter a home through cracks in the foundation, and because it’s odorless and colorless, the only way to detect it is with a professional inspection.
Your NPI inspector can check the basement, crawl spaces, attic, carpet and more for potentially hazardous mold. If mold is suspected, samples can be collected and analyzed to confirm the extent of the contamination and determine necessary remediation.

4. 1-Hour Walk Through Consultations
A one-hour walk through consultation is designed to help investors gain more insight about a home and is perfect for those that do not require a home inspection but would like more information about a property. This is a great, budget-friendly way to help understand potential issues so clients can make informed decisions moving forward in the property transaction.

120-DAY COMPLETE PROTECTION WARRANTY
Buying or selling a home comes with a unique set of potential problems. Homeowners find a leak, their furnace breaks down, their roof needs some work. With the 120-Day Warranty from National Property Inspections in partnership with Complete Protection, our clients don’t have to worry about these unexpected expenses. Whether buying or selling, inspection warranties save clients money and protect their investment. Click here for more details on the 120-Day Warranty from NPI South Richmond.

PROTECTION SUMMARY
Between the inspection and this Complete Protection (CP) 120- day warranty, clients can proceed without worrying about an unexpected repair bill or a major appliance replacement. Here's what's covered:

  • Appliances
  • Climate
  • Plumbing
  • Foundation
  • Framework

SECURITY
CP protects any part that is inside the sheet-metal skin of appliances. We also have no exclusions for age, rust, lack of maintenance, or unknown preexisting conditions.

SAVINGS
CP pays 100% of the repair costs (parts and labor); there is no deductible for clients to pay when a servicer comes out. CP has a guaranteed reimbursement toward the replacement of protected appliances.
