Central Texas Companies Add Real Estate & Mortgage Services to Employee Benefits Packages
Added benefits help companies attract and retain top talent in a competitive job market
AUSTIN, Texas (December 07, 2017) — HomeBenefitIQ (HBIQ), a corporate real estate benefit provider, today announced it has partnered with Central Texas companies to add real estate and mortgage services to their employee benefits packages. At no cost to the company or employees, the added benefits help companies recruit and retain top talent while helping to keep productivity high at work by eliminating the stressful distractions associated with home buying.
A study by ComPsych, the world’s largest provider of employee assistance programs (EAPs), found that a staggering 92% of Americans are losing sleep over their finances. When it comes to real estate, which plays an integral part in many Americans’ finances and is potentially their most valuable asset, 44 percent of adults said they are not confident in their knowledge of home loans or the process, according to a Zillow survey. HBIQ was created to help educate and advise employees of participating organizations when they are ready to buy, sell or finance real estate.
HBIQ brings together real estate agents, lenders, surveyors, builders, home inspectors, financial planners, insurance agents and other related professionals to help employees navigate the complicated world of real estate before they begin what can be life-changing transactions. All member professionals are vetted for their experience and expertise.
HBIQ benefits include:
- Reduced fees for professional services (as permitted by law) for employees/members
- Access to online and mobile mortgage planning tools and cost-saving benefits
- Connection to a local direct lender
- Direct access to specialists in conventional, jumbo, FHA, VA, Renovation, and One-Time Close construction loans
- Average buyer receives more than $1,900 in discounts and credits
HBIQ was established in 2004, and now boasts more than 3,400 employers, associations, school districts, unions and clubs that offer the benefit for their employees/members. HBIQ has dedicated advisors who offer onsite educational seminars designed for small or large groups, and one-on-one consultations with employees.
