When it comes to real estate, time is of the essence, whether you’re on the buying or selling end of the transaction. But last-minute hiccups like a positive test for asbestos, mold, or other serious health concerns could mean huge setbacks and headaches for everyone involved. Fortunately, there are some things you as the realtor can do to better prepare yourself and your clients for these situations, and, in some cases, maybe even detect them before they have a chance to create bigger problems. Here’s how signing up for a FREE presentation with the Certified Inspector professionals at Bioterra Environmental Solutions can help you and your clients!
Stop Wasting Time Searching for Certified Inspector
When asbestos testing, mold testing, air quality tests, or oil tank sweeps are needed before a sale can go through, realtors know better than anyone that there’s no time to waste in getting the process started. However, finding a reputable certified inspector and testing company can be a time-consuming process.
During our free presentation, we will discuss how you can avoid wasting precious time in this process and get right to the matter at hand. We bring in Scott Leifer from Hawkeye Services for professional oil tank sweeps, Simon Alves from Lesa Inspections for certified home inspections, and our very own Rick Eustaquio for certified asbestos and mold inspections. Together, we travel to various real estate agencies throughout New York and New Jersey to share our knowledge with you so you don’t have to feel pressured and crunched for time should you run into one of these roadblocks with a future client.
Learn How to Detect Asbestos and Other Possible Setbacks
Another key component of our presentation is equipping you with the knowledge and experience necessary in order to make you better prepared and able to deal with these types of situations when they inevitably do crop up.
For example, we bring in samples of what could be potentially asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) to look at so you can get a better idea of what these materials are, what they would look like, and where they can be found. And who knows—maybe YOU might be the one who catches a possible ACM before the problem presents itself at the last minute.
Ensure Your Transaction Stays on Schedule
Finally, if the homeowner does need to order an oil tank sweep or asbestos or mold test, we can work with you to ensure that the inspection and testing process goes as smoothly and quickly as possible. The last thing you want to happen is to have the sale delayed because you’re still waiting on test results. Here at Bioterra, we work with a fully vetted, group of Certified Inspector professionals to provide the quickest turnaround times for your reports to ensure that your transaction stays on schedule!
