|What’s New at HomeBinder|
Homeowner Home Health/Home Score Dashboard
Think of it as being similar to the “Check Engine” light in your car. This dashboard for homeowners provides a quick status of items in their HomeBinder such as:
– The number of overdue or upcoming maintenance items
– Any active recalls on items in their home
– List of service providers to assist with home maintenance tasks
– A home inventory option to safely store your information in case of fire or theft
A corresponding “HomeBinder Home Score” grades homeowners based on how up-to-date they are with their home requirements. A homeowner score over 80 is good, 90 is great, for those not doing as well, there are recommendations on how to improve.
The dashboard is now visible on all homeowner binders.
Partner Review System for Homeowners
This major new feature allows homeowners to leave reviews for the partner who created their HomeBinder account, with the option to share written feedback on the partner’s public reviews profiles such as Google or Yelp, only if they intend to leave a positive review. The homeowner provides the review through a widget that automatically appears in their binder. We are seeing a substantial number of partner reviews since its launch this Spring. Partners are beginning to use this either as their primary review system or as an ancillary system that complements other review system(s) already in place.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the review system or how to link this important new feature to your public profile of choice.
