As professional home inspectors, your home inspection report is, without question, the most important document that you produce in your business. A well produced, quality report does many different things to help your business, and should always be updated and improved. A good home inspection report is worth it’s weight in gold. Your report is capable of doing many beneficial things for your business, and should get the respect that it deserves!
A good report provides value to your inspection client, creating confidence in your abilities as an inspection professional, and helping to cement hiring you as a good decision in their mind. This can make them a bit more understanding when there is an issue that develops, and makes them more likely to recommend you to their friends in the future.
A good report also provides a strong foundation for your defense, if you are ever involved in a dispute regarding the home. Having a report that is missing vital information, is full of spelling and grammar errors or simply looks bad can certainly provide ammunition for opposing attorneys to call into question your professional abilities. Your report should be able to prove what you did and when you did it, leaving nothing to interpretation.
A good report also serves as an effective marketing tool, by making it easier for everyone else involved in the transaction. If your report is easy to understand, and provides all of the necessary information in an easily accessible format, people will be happy with your work and will want to share their positive experience with others. Conversely, a difficult to utilize inspection report is sure to get everyone talking as well, but the results on your business are sure to be detrimental.
