Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 06, 2011
The real estate industry is rife with consumer-based review and information sites, such as the numerous websites where consumers can seek opinions about local real estate agencies or realtors. There has long been an absence of similar directories for home inspection companies, however, but a new site is seeking to change that. At HomeInspectionReviews.com, prospective homeowners can make informed decisions about the home inspection company they choose to employ. The site has recently launched and is open to consumer reviews from recent or soon-to-be-homeowners wishing to provide insight into different home inspection companies they have worked with.
According to Jason Kay, the site’s developer and company president, HomeInspectionReviews.com fills a big gap, and could be invaluable to consumers. “There have always been sites offering advice and reviews on real estate agents, but never one that helped buyers find a home inspection company,” observes Kay. “That’s an area in which a lot of folks don’t have a lot of experience, so this site should prove to be an essential resource.”
Kay says HomeInspectionReviews.com was designed with consumers in mind, something that is evident in its emphasis on customer reviews over professional ones. Rather than feature paid reviews of different home inspection companies, the site features a directory of companies, allowing users to submit their own reviews for each one. Homebuyers are encouraged to share their own consumer experiences, and help others seeking to find the best home inspection company, by submitting their reviews of the services they have used. According to Kay, the site is intended to provide consumers a window into the home inspection industry.
In addition to the directory of reviews, HomeInspectionReviews.com also offers informative articles that highlight the basic concepts of hiring a home inspection company. The articles are written with first-time buyers in mind, according to Kay, and offer simple explanations of what to look for in a home inspection company.
Still, the bulk of the newly-launched site is the review directory. Kay says he hopes those who have recently bought a home will submit their feedback of the home inspection company they employed. “By sharing these experiences, the homeowner can allow other consumers to make better-informed decisions,” he says. “Our hope is that this will blossom into a site where consumers can find ample information about different home inspection companies, and ultimately make the right decisions about the companies they choose to employ.”
