1. Agents already have inspectors.
2. Agents can buy their own cookies. Leave those ineffective actions to the mortgage broker.
3. Unless the email is sent by the agent broker, it will not be read. (hint)
4. Read number 3 again. Did you get the clue?
5 .Inspectors who have been with their agent for years and years often go flaky with the reports or become too busy to respond quickly. A recently fired inspector wrote up as 'Must do" indicating the plug for the range was not fully seated in the receptacle. Rather than push the plug into the receptacle, it became an action item on the report. Of course there are a gazillion excuses for not pushing in the plug...but he won't be sharing them with me. HE IS FIRED! You are looking to exploit these moments of dissatisfaction to your benefit. Since you can not know when calamity will happen, you need to be positioned, passively to be the beneficiary. What I did following the 'receptacle 'Must Do' is the action I felt I 'must do.'
6. YOU need, you must, to get into the agents cell phone.
a. Make the agent a value offer (What's in it for me?)
b. Use a QR code for them to respond (contact data embedded)
c. Be explicit regarding the 'exact' business you want.and what you are offering (i.e. need an inspection in 18 hours, weekends, Sunday, graduated schedule, additional services, report available upon completion of inspection, Free plastic Pink Flamingo for every yard!) Well, maybe not that last one.
7. I looked up my Plan B inspector on my cell and didn't miss a beat. Yes, I do have a Plan C.
Moral: Get your number into their cell phone. You achieve that by making it clear the precise problem they are having that you can and will solve. (I have already provided you a working list.) Then make it easy for them to do what you want. FOLKS like EZ.
Best of success to you,
