As an ERA Broker, Van Mater said he will be able to offer such consumer aids as ERA's two home warranties - the Home Buyers Protection Plan and Home Seller's Protection, as well as photo-by-wire listings ERA, the fastest-growing national home marketing ser- vice, will have more than 2,500 Brokers with nearly 40,000 sales associates i, more than 3,750 offices nauonwide by the end of 1978, according to Van Mater. "With ERA's three exclusive consumer aids we offer, we can help people buy and sell, their homes and alleviate the trauma of moving," Van Mater said. "The Home Buyers Protection Plan," said Van Mater, "protects the homeowner against the opera tional failure of major home components in- cluding the central heating, electric air conditioning, plumbing and electrical systems, built-in appliances, water heaters and softeners and accessible sheet metal ducts." "Home Sellers Protection coverage begins 15 days after the home is listed for sale with an ERA Broker, for up to six months, or until the home is sold. The coverage is identical to the buyer's pla," Van Mater said. "A person moving long distances has always had to travel back and forth to find the right home. There was no way to make the search easier. ERA's "Moving Machine" has changed all that. The "Moving Machine" transmits six photos at a time of homes and descriptive data to prospective buyers practically anywhere in the country. The transmission only takes six minutes from the time the request is made to the central bank of homes on file at ERA's headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas. The buyer could be looking at these photos as they come off the machine in my office," Van Mater said. According to Van Mater, more than 600,000 photos have been sent in five years and there are more than 20,000 active listings on file.
