Gaining a Competitive Advantage with Sellers Shield

In the highly competitive real estate industry, agents are constantly seeking ways to differentiate themselves and gain a competitive edge. When agents use and offer Sellers Shield’s Gold Standard Disclosure Process™ and Home Sale Legal Protection™, they gain just that, a competitive edge. In this post, we’ll explore how agents can use Sellers Shield as leverage to enhance their market position and prove to be more valuable to clients. 

Gold Standard Disclosure Process

Inviting sellers to disclose their property through Sellers Shield offers agents the opportunity to provide a superior level of service. Make sure your sellers completely understand the forms and the importance of accurate disclosure.  Agents can proudly state, “I provide you with a Gold Standard Disclosure Process,” emphasizing their commitment to thorough and compliant disclosures. Sellers receive tips, resources, and definitions while filling out their forms. The disclosure process also ensures every question is answered and signatures are applied to all necessary spots. By leveraging Sellers Shield’s advanced online disclosure system, agents streamline the process, ensuring accuracy and minimizing the risk of legal disputes.

See how one agent uses Sellers Shield to set herself apart as a trusted advisor

"When selling a home in Texas, a seller disclosure and other potential disclosures (when applicable) are usually required. The disclosure documents are designed to cover the seller's legal bases, but they can be a little tricky to fill out if you aren’t a legal or real estate expert. That’s why we provide all our clients with Sellers Shield when filling out disclosures prior to selling."

Home Sale Legal Protection

When agents purchase Home Sale Legal Protection from Sellers Shield for their clients, they gain a powerful selling point to attract potential clients. By being able to confidently say, “I provide you with $75,000 of legal protection,” agents showcase their commitment to safeguarding their clients’ interests. This protection extends for up to three years after the transaction, instilling peace of mind and demonstrating the agent’s dedication to long-term client satisfaction.

Enhanced Risk Management

Traditional insurance policies offered by brokerages may often fall short in preventing lawsuits. In contrast, Sellers Shield empowers agents with proactive risk management strategies. By educating sellers about potential risks associated with home sales and providing them with the necessary tools to protect themselves, agents shield their clients from frivolous lawsuits and save them from the clutches of money-hungry litigants.

Cost Savings and Client Retention

Sellers who partner with agents utilizing Sellers Shield benefit from significant long-term cost savings. By avoiding legal battles and potential financial liabilities, clients can preserve their hard-earned assets. This not only fosters client satisfaction but also contributes to positive word-of-mouth referrals, resulting in client retention and a growing client base.

Mental and Emotional Well-being

The intangible advantages of Sellers Shield cannot be overstated. By offering comprehensive legal protection and a better disclosure process with tips and resources, agents provide their clients with peace of mind. This sense of security contributes to clients’ mental and emotional well-being, allowing them to focus on other aspects of their lives during the home sale process.

Conclusion

In an industry where agents must constantly strive to stay ahead of the competition, Sellers Shield offers a distinct competitive advantage. By leveraging the Home Sale Legal Protection and the Gold Standard Disclosure Process, agents can position themselves as trusted advisors who prioritize their client’ best interests. With the ability to provide substantial legal protection, streamline disclosures, and mitigate risks, agents using Sellers Shield enhance their market position, improve client satisfaction, and pave the way for long-term success. Embracing Sellers Shield is not just a business strategy; it is a commitment to exceptional service, peace of mind, and protecting clients from potential legal challenges in the dynamic world of real estate.

Common questions

If you don’t see the answer you need below, call us at (844)747-4435

Our tools and forms are 100% free to use for all of your clients. 

During disclosure, we give definitions, tips, and guidance throughout the form.  The disclosure form includes expandable fields, meaning that sellers can provide as much information as they would like without being limited by the space provided on the traditional handwritten forms or fillable PDFs. Sellers are also required to answer all questions, so that no questions are missed. Once the seller completes and signs, a custom formatted, legible, and fully completed PDF is emailed directly to the agent and home seller, and stored in their dashboard.

Depending on the state, addenda will either be automatically added based on the seller’s answers (ie. lead-based paint form) or the agent can choose which addenda are required.

Disclosure forms are legal documents and sellers commonly ask their agents how to answer questions on the forms. These questions put agents in a difficult situation legally, because they are not attorneys.  Our Gold Standard Disclosure Process™ guides sellers through disclosure, separating the agent from the disclosure, reducing agent liability. 

Additionally, purchasing or informing sellers of Home Sale Legal Protection™ fulfills fiduciary duty and proves the agent has provided the highest standard of care in the event of a claim.

You’ll be able to track all of your seller’s progress in your dashboard. Once your seller completes the disclosure process, you will receive an email with the completed PDF. You can also manage and download completed forms from within your dashboard.

The seller can access their forms in their dashboard anytime to edit and make changes.  If edits are made on a fully executed document, the seller(s) will have to resign and date.

Great! Your broker can reach out to our team at [email protected] and one of our account managers will get your brokerage set up.

When sellers get sued the agent and brokerage are almost always named in the lawsuit. Leading national insurance companies have endorsed Sellers Shield™ in their E&O policies, offering brokers and agents deductible waivers on claims where Sellers Shield is used. 

No, we do not sell personal information.

If Home Sale Legal Protection™ was purchased and there is a claim after the sale, Sellers Shield will appoint an expert, local real estate attorney to defend the seller against a buyer dispute. Sellers Shield™ will support the seller from start to finish and pay up to $20,000 in legal fees.

The protection activates on the day the home closes.

No.  Home Sale Legal Protection™ can only be purchased up until the closing of the sale.
