As a Realtor and broker with over a decade of experience, I have been through hundreds of home inspections. Whether representing the buyer or the seller, I take each home inspection as a learning opportunity to teach my clients about major versus minor repairs. As the years have passed, I have learned some easy DIY fixes that all agents should know. Advising your clients on easy DIY fixes gives you the opportunity to do a few things: Build even more trust between you and the client Get more referrals for future business from each client with whom you spend a little bit of extra time and impart valuable knowledge Save your clients a lot of money on easy repairs they otherwise wouldn't know how to do I started conducting a short learning session with all of my buyer clients after the close of their new home, and I can't tell you how much the goodwill of doing these sessions is worth to your business. During these sessions, I point out a few easy DIY fixes and repairs ...
