Include Financing with Your Project Quotes

We鈥檝e heard from several home improvement contractors (many posting their woes on Twitter), who are spending a LOT of time writing project quotes but getting a low percentage of commitments in return. It鈥檚 frustrating to spend so much time upfront trying to capture the sale and, in the end, losing it.

Is there a more surefire way to capture the sale? Of course there is!

Project quotes generally include a detailed breakdown of the expected materials, specs and costs associated with the proposed project. At the bottom of the quote is the full cost. Your prospect most likely is focusing on the number at the bottom of the quote, behind the words: Project Cost.

Financing is your surefire way to capture the sale!

How much will it cost? Every contractor or salesperson knows that鈥檚 the question on every customer鈥檚 mind. Financing immediately addresses any sticker shock and allows you to shift focus away from the big number on the bottom of a quote sheet to the value and comfort the improvement will add to their home.

When you include a financing option with the quote, it increases the affordability factor of the project. A $5,000 price tag can translate to $100/month or no payment for 6 months! That wow factor will give you call backs on quotes and book projects for your business.

Offering financing will help your business:

  • Increase sales and project sizes.

    Financing increases a customer鈥檚 purchasing power. Not only will it be easier to close a sale, it鈥檒l be easier to close a bigger sale. Show customers how a small increase in a monthly loan payment (from $100 to $120) gives them the freedom to afford the dream upgrade.

  • Be more competitive.

    Foundation Finance provides fee-free competitive rates that make financing options very attractive鈥攁nd make dream projects very affordable. Exclusive promotions such as half payments for a year or no interest for 6 months also make your business stand out from the crowd.

  • Use your sales pipeline.
