Learn to Make the Highest-Scoring Impact With Your Repair Budget

Here’s the fundamental reason REAC inspections are a property owner’s nightmare:  REAC is forever changing the rules—and inspectors don’t always apply them consistently, especially when it comes to non-industry standard (NIS) repairs. Yet you’ll face significant penalties for UPCS non-compliance.

And the heat is definitely on at the moment: REAC is set to revamp its 20-year-old scoring system!

Join REAC inspection specialist Hank Vanderbeek to get a true insider’s guide to preparing for the proposed inspection protocol changes.  Plus, Vanderbeek will discuss the rules for making NIS repairs—a challenging area for property owners since even REAC inspectors themselves often don’t know what an acceptable repair looks like.

In this “survival guide” session, you will learn the difference between acceptable and unacceptable repairs— and you’ll discover exactly how REAC inspectors are interpreting NIS defects. Vanderbeek will provide numerous photo examples of high-score-earning repairs as well as unpublished photos used to train REAC Inspectors on NIS repairs. And he’ll address all types of problem areas—from doors, walls, floors, and ceilings to electric, fences, downspouts, sprinkler heads, vegetation, and erosion.

After attending, you’ll be confident in your understanding of NIS repair rules, basic REAC scoring structure, and the effect of defects on your score. You will be particularly prepared to mitigate high-point defects and earn a high score on your next inspection—all without busting your budget.
