We get paid good hard earned money to perform a Home Inspection and are often frustrated when clients do not read the report, or at least the summary pages.
The home is often way bigger or in worse condition than we expect and are scheduled for, but we work on and produce the report.
Clients are often too busy to attend (we love when you come to the inspection) and we understand that.
The report is prepared on site and then emailed to the client as soon as we have completed the inspection.
All the information in the report is easy to understand, yes its detailed, it has comments customized to that property, it even has photos to make it easy to see what we are pointing out.
It is not sixty or eighty pages of waffle that some inspectors produce, ours are on average thirty pages with six summary pages you really should read …. and yet, we have those clients who do not “see the written word”, or worse yet don’t even bother to read the report.
What are we doing, hiding words in plain site?
Its just crazy: We are expected to see and find everything in a two thousand square feet home in three or four hours and then, their is the client who can’t find “nine lines” of comment in their report and feel its our fault! Yeah, in capital letters “SMOKE DETECTORS” in the Electrical comments.
