The Benefits of a Home Binder
A new platform is simplifying the home selling and buying process. Learn more about HomeBinder.
Imagine a tool that makes owning a new home easier. Picture a software program that alerts you when appliances are due for maintenance. Visualize a virtual secure platform that can replace your heavy-duty 3” binder that precariously stores all your loose-leafed, home-related documents. Sound too good to be true? It’s not, it’s HomeBinder.
HomeBinder takes the stress out of organizing your documents. It consolidates your home history on its simple, easy-to-use platform. You’ll know when the roof was last replaced, what parts are needed for pipe replacement and more. When you decide to sell, it speeds up the home inspection process with quick access to information.
What is a HomeBinder?
HomeBinder is a residential home management software platform where homeowners can digitally save all information related to their house. HomeBinder has become a popular tool for owners, real estate professionals, and inspectors. This diverse tool not only allows for a more seamless sale of a home, it also makes owning a home a less stressful experience.
Three Benefits of Creating a HomeBinder
The first year of owning a home can be the most stressful. Unforeseen problems can occur which will require you to access information about parts, appliances and past inspectors quickly.
HomeBinder is that centralized source where you can find this information. This leads to faster resolution and can even improve the value of your home. Here are additional benefits of utilizing HomeBinder.
1. Easier To Shop For Parts and Appliances
Does the children’s room need a fresh coat of paint? Do you remember if you used periwinkle or aqua blue? If you don’t have a photographic memory, you may need to scrounge for a 5-year old receipt and cross your fingers you didn’t throw it away. Parts, appliances, paint brands and other home-related purchases are saved in HomeBinder. No need to turn the house upside down looking for receipts.
2. Improved Home Value
When you put off required car maintenance, you know you’re driving on borrowed time. Your dashboard will display a maintenance reminder every time you start your engine. This helps you stay on track with your car maintenance.
Home maintenance is a different story. There are so many appliances in your home, it’s easy to lose track of maintenance due dates. Often it’s put off until an emergency occurs or severe damage takes place. This can lead to costly repairs that could have been avoided with timely maintenance.
Your HomeBinder acts like the warning sign in your car. It emails you maintenance reminders to help you stay on track. You’ll also receive alerts for appliance recalls. Improve your home’s value with regularly scheduled maintenance.
3. Faster Home Inspection
Wise home buyers will have an extensive home inspection checklist so they have peace of mind about making a smart purchase. Instead of becoming apprehensive when they inquire about the last time you upgraded the roof, you can simply refer them to your HomeBinder. There, they can securely access information about your home. This will cut down on the back and forth between you, the agents, and the buyer, speeding up the selling process.
What if access to HomeBinder is the persuasive point to convince a buyer to purchase your home? It’s many real estate agents’ secret weapon to finalizing sales.
HomeBinder for Real Estate Professionals
Realtors love HomeBinder too. It’s an essential tool that helps their sellers stay organized. If a homeowner is unavailable to answer questions, the agent can easily access information on HomeBinder.
In addition, realtors can add their branding information and create a HomeBinder profile for additional exposure and recognition by clients. More and more real estate agents are using HomeBinder and their clients love the seamless, stress-free experience it provides.
