As a home inspector, you have two jobs – the first is to inspect the home, and the second is to create a report. The inspection report is your final product – the client relies on it to make critical decisions regarding the real estate transaction, and the report needs to be clear and concise. No matter how good or thorough your inspection is, what really counts is what you include in the report and how you say it. Report Writing has it covered from start to finish: the basic elements of proper defect comments; words to never use in a report; creating report comments that are clear for the client while minimizing your liability; report system ratings; summary pages; and report comment mistakes to be avoided. Dozens of defect photos and well written comments are presented, along with many report writing tips and numerous suggestions for pre-set report comments. Also included is a discussion on report styles, formats and delivery, as well as the current “state of the art” in home inspection reports.
