Hassle-Free Homeowners Insurance Quotes with the HomeGauge Extra Care Program

“Offering Extra Care means less work for me, less work for the home buyer, and less stress for the agent.”

Dennis Kruger
Southern Wisconsin Home Inspections

Home Buyers Love It!

After an inspection, the next step for buyers is to get a quote for homeowners insurance. This can be a complicated process for home buyers, but you can make it easy for them. Since you've already collected all the information needed during the home inspection, it's simple to help your home buyers turn their inspection report into a quick and easy homeowners insurance quote.

The HomeGauge Extra Care Program is the easiest way for home buyers to get proof of coverage to provide to their bank for closing. Home buyers using participating home inspectors will see a link near their online inspection report to request a quote. It's that easy!

With Extra Care, you can rest assured that privacy is our priority — if your home buyer doesn't actively opt in and ask for a quote, they will never be contacted. Your home buyer can then accept the quote or simply use it as a price comparison. Either way, you're now able to provide a great service, saving time and money for your home buyers.

Agents Love It Too.

Agents prefer HomeGauge Extra Care because they see it as a beneficial add-on service for their home buyers. Best of all, it saves those agents from having to answer questions for insurance applications, eliminating a full step in the process. You can make it easy for them to get their home buyers a quote and empower them to see if they can get it for less somewhere else. May the best insurance company win their business!

No Extra Work Required!

This program doesn’t require any extra work on your part, since all info needed is already collected at the inspection — and 100% of your buyers will love it because they specifically opted in for the quote.

Stand out from your competition by bringing more value to your buyers and agents. Try it risk-free with no limitations for cancellation. We know that you and your customers will love the convenience Extra Care provides!
