A free pay-at-close option for the home buyer.
Designed to give the home buyer extra peace of mind during the home buying process.

Home appraisal fees are often paid for at the time of closing. Why shouldn’t inspection fees work the same way?

  • Excellent option for home buyers limited on funds at time of inspection.

  • Provides the ability to add more inspection services that are important for the home purchase.

  • Easier financial planning by having all home buying-related fees scheduled for payment on set date.

The FlexFund Program allows home buyers to pay for their home inspection at the time of closing instead of at time of service. Home buyers that are either reserving on- hand cash, or hesitant to put large purchases on a credit card while the close is pending, now have a pay-later option to ensure a more comfortable home-buying experience.

How It Works

1) Once the inspection has been booked, we will send an invoice for the amount owed. The client can then choose FlexFund as their method of payment.

2) The client has two options. If they have their closing/title company information, they can enter on the checkout page. If they do NOT have their closing/title company information, they can select the “I don’t have my closing company info”, and their agent will be contacted to fill in these details for them. ** If Guardian doesn’t have title information within 5 business days, we reserve the right to charge the client’s credit card. (Please note that ACH/E-check payments may not be available for all inspections and varies by inspection companies who have this service activated.)

3) After selecting how to proceed with the closing/title info, the client can then sign the Pay-At-Close agreement at the bottom of the page.

4) There will still be a requirement for credit card information to be entered. Note that this is only used as a backup payment in the event that the sale doesn’t close. An amount of 0.01 will be charged to the card on file for validating purposes only. No other charges will be made to this card as long as the sale makes it to closing.
