January 20, 2015 – Haymarket, VA and Ewing, NJ – Housefax, a leader in residential property history information and reports, and HouseMaster, one of the largest and oldest inspection companies in the U.S., today announced a new alliance that provides HouseMaster home inspectors with the ability to offer their customers access to co-branded reports, powered by Housefax, containing property-specific history and insurance claims information. The reports include extensive home history data such as, insurance claims, building permits, incident history, voluntary lien history and a comprehensive list of natural hazards. The reports also include any insurance claims filed on the home and alerts and possible issues based on the specifics of the property. The reports offer great value to home inspectors and their clients by bringing attention to areas of the property that may have otherwise been missed without these inclusive reports.
“With the launch of this new pact, we are helping home inspectors provide their clients with an abundance of intelligent and accurate data, and at the same time addressing the growing real estate consumer demand for transparency and self-empowerment,” said Hassib Amiryar, CTO for Housefax.
HouseMaster has been a leading innovator in providing home inspection services to the national residential home market. The collaboration between the two companies allows HouseMaster to expand and fortify its inspection reports made available to their residential home buyers and sellers.
“We are excited to align our services with Housefax and are, as always, committed to equipping our business owners with cutting edge resources that provide deeper insight into the client’s prospective home,” said Kathleen Kuhn, president of Housemaster.
The co-branded property history and insurance claims reports are immediately available to Housemaster home inspectors. For more information, go to housemaster.com.
