Leading aggregation group eChoice has teamed up with an emerging company to expand its broker proposition.
The partnership with beforeyoubid.com.au will enable eChoice’s broker network to offer their customers the capability to order an independent building inspection and report once their loan is approved.
eChoice national sales manager Blake Buchanan said the new partnership will enhance the group’s broker proposition, “particularly as the industry focus on the importance of building inspections in a property purchase continues”.
“Brokers can now offer customers an add-on service which is a natural adjunct to the news of their loan approval,” Mr Buchanan added.
“This partnership provides the next stage of securing the property to be further streamlined as the customer now has the opportunity to order a building and pest inspection, obtain a strata report and have their sales contract reviewed by a solicitor.”
The process is made possible through the beforeyoubid.com.au platform which gives customers the ability to share the costs of their reports with other parties interested in the same property.
This platform is supported by a cost structure that decreases in line with the number of users which, according to eChoice, has the potential to save customers considerable money, particularly if they are looking at multiple properties.
“This is yet another tool for brokers to fortify their businesses by offering services that continue to increase their value proposition for customers,” Mr Buchanan said.
Chief executive officer of beforeyoubid.com.au Rhys Rogers said the company is excited about its new partnership with eChoice.
“Our shared commitment to saving consumers’ time and money during the process of buying a property was really at the core of consolidating this partnership between the two organisations,” he said.
The beforeyoubid.com.au platform is an online hub designed for consumers who want to purchase residential or commercial property.
