Why Have A Maintenance Tech On Your Team At Your Real Estate Office?

by Arnold Gomez

Whether you own and operate a real estate company or you are a real estate agent who works for a real estate firm, you want to make sure the end customer, who is buying or selling real estate, has the best experience. After all, purchasing real estate for many people is the most expensive investment a person can make and you want to make sure people feel they are getting their money's worth in your hands.

A maintenance tech on your team can be a great asset, both for those trying to sell their homes and those buying them. You can use a maintenance technician on a per-needed basis to help make homes ready to sell or to make newly-purchased homes just right. There are maintenance technician jobs that can be done on nearly any property you are helping to promote, and having a professional on hand can mean the difference between a real estate sale and losing a property — and a client.

Learn why you should have a maintenance tech on your team at your real estate office. You can also hire a maintenance technician as an outsourced professional if this works better for your company or if you don't wish to keep a maintenance tech on staff or on your constant payroll.

You can help homeowners get their properties ready to sell

It's not uncommon for a home to need a little fixing up to make it ready to sell. Have your clients simply work with your maintenance tech on staff to get their homes sell-ready. Your fees for the maintenance work can simply be taken out of the home sale so homeowners don't feel pressured to pull extra money out of their pockets.

You can help make negotiations easier for buyers

When you have a buyer who wants to purchase a home but the seller won't budge on fixing something, you can help buyers out by having your maintenance tech do some fixing up as part of the purchase agreement after the home has been sold. Sometimes this can be just the gentle nudge your clients need to help them get their home ownership dreams realized.

Your maintenance tech can help you and your clients make real estate deals much easier for everyone. You can use your maintenance tech to fix up your real estate property as well. An investment in these professional services can benefit everyone and lead to happier clients and more successful real estate adventures.
