Aligning Incentives: Real HomePoint Stories Part 1

In the realm of home maintenance and repair, the disparity between service providers’ motivations and homeowners’ actual needs has long been a point of contention. This series aims to shed light on how HomePoint is pioneering a shift towards aligning these incentives, ensuring that homeowners’ interests are at the forefront of every service provided. Our first installment features a compelling story from our client base, highlighting the stark differences in service philosophy and execution.

HomePoint Client Story

The journey into the colder months brought an unwelcome surprise for one of our HomePoint members. Upon attempting to activate their heating system, they were met with silence — a clear sign of a malfunction. This issue traced back to a service conducted by a leading Home Warranty company, where, instead of performing the necessary repairs, the technician disconnected the gas pipe vent, effectively rendering the furnace inoperative.

As winter’s chill set in, the member sought the expertise of large HVAC company, only to be presented with a daunting prognosis: a repair cost of $1,500 and the advice to replace the entire AC system, a venture soaring over $35,000.

The HomePoint Resolution

When HomePoint was called upon to address the same issue, our approach was fundamentally different. Our Home Doctor quickly diagnosed and rectified the problem, reinstating warmth to the member’s home at the nominal cost of $50. This narrative underscores the essence of HomePoint’s mission — to offer services that genuinely align with our members’ needs and financial well-being.

HomePoint transcends the traditional “break-fix” model prevalent in the industry. Our ethos is built on the principle of preventive care, mirroring the foresight and attentiveness of a concierge doctor, but for your home.
