North America’s Largest Home Inspection Company to Offer PunchListUSA’s Instant Repair Estimates and Tech-Powered Marketplace Services to Homeowners
PunchListUSA, the first consumer marketplace to digitize home inspection data for instant estimates and online ordering of home services, today announced that it has signed an exclusive five-year inspection data partnership with Pillar To Post Home Inspectors® – North America’s largest home inspection company.
With this agreement, the two companies will expand on their existing data integration and, through a phased launch, provide all of Pillar to Post’s North American franchise partners and customers with streamlined access to instant repair estimates via PunchListUSA’s dynamic pricing engine. PunchListUSA’s technology is powered by machine learning and leverages exclusive inspection data with real-time material and labor cost feedback loops to decode home inspection reports into simplified, priority-based repair estimates.
Tampa-based Pillar To Post has led the industry by evolving and perfecting the processes involved in the craft of home inspection. “Working diligently for the past few years on cutting-edge technologies for home inspections has been a long but uplifting journey,” said Pillar To Post President and CEO Dan Steward, “but well worth the effort to revolutionize and modernize one of the key elements to real estate transactions.”
“Our mandate at Pillar To Post is to ensure confident home buying and ownership,” added Steward. “Our partnership with PunchListUSA ensures that millions of homeowners across North America will receive not only the best-quality inspection but also tech-enabled line-item pricing guidance from the industry-leading services provider to make informed decisions with peace of mind.”
“Technology simplifies our daily lives – yet homeownership remains unpredictable and difficult for many to navigate,” said PunchListUSA CEO and Co-Founder Min Alexander. “In connecting PunchListUSA’s dynamic pricing engine and homeowner tools to Pillar To Post’s advanced home inspection platform, we’re taking a bold step forward to deliver on our mission to provide homeowners with access to turnkey lifecycle services that make maintaining and improving their homes stress-free.”
