COA Announces New Program to Help Inspectors Stand out from the Crowd by locating money for their clients:

We all find appliances, such as Furnaces, A/C-Heat Pumps, Water Heaters, etc. every day that are at or near the end of their useful life.  We report this bad news to all parties involved.  How’d you like to include some good news as well about real rebates and other incentives to help people pay for these new appliance replacements?  We have the answer.  With a little bit of additional information gathered at the site you can provide a custom detailed report for the property citing the rebates and discounts available for the specific property!  This is not just local utility, this new program provides all rebate information at one consolidated location.  What a way to market yourself and stand out as different!
Below is the link to the training for a new program for home inspectors.  This is training and certification to learn how to use the BigBread site to obtain consolidated information regarding manufacturer, utility rebates and tax subsidies in one location nationwide for your clients.  We think it a win-win for inspectors, agents, buyers and sellers (how often does that happen?) as when the inspector identifies outdated or failed appliances, this software locates rebates and discounts in any locale in the country to help with the replacement costs.   Even if no appliances need immediate replacement the value of the report is in the information, and it can be updated.  Please check COA as the referrer when you register!

Appliance Rebate Program
