DropIn InsurTech Offers Solution for Remote Home Appraisals


LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- DropIn, a Los Angeles-based tech company pioneering video home inspections, is urging homebuyers and home inspectors to use its platform during the COVID-19 pandemic. Live-streaming a home inspection is the easiest way to comply with social distancing and shelter in place mandates, while still getting an immersive experience.

A home inspection is one of the most critical steps of the home buying process. Prospective buyers are right to want to be part of it, on-site to ask an inspector or appraiser questions about the investment they're about to make. Without this opportunity, they might be left with questions when the inspection report comes—or worse, they could buy a home without knowledge of a major flaw.

Live streaming allows homebuyers to sit at home on their couch while getting a firsthand look at everything their inspector sees during a review. DropIn's platform and process make it easy. The inspector arrives on-site and sends a DropIn link to the client. Then, the client accepts the link and opens it on their phone, tablet or computer. The inspector completes the inspection normally, with the client watching. Clients can ask questions or get feedback from the inspector during the process. When the inspection is done, all the information is cataloged for later review.

"DropIn delivers a complete home inspection and/or appraisal, without any face-to-face, in-person interaction," said DropIn CEO Joseph Shemesh. "This simple process complies with social distancing policies, while giving homeowners and homebuyers the peace of mind to make an informed decision."

Because DropIn records and archives the entire live stream, there's no worry about overlooked information. If homeowners ask a question on the livestream or the appraiser notes something during the inspection, it'll be preserved in the record.

The information gleaned from a home inspection or appraisal is vital for any real estate transaction. Buyers and sellers can't afford not to have it. DropIn makes it possible to stay informed and get the information needed to make a confident real estate purchase from the comfort of your couch.
