As pointed out by Nick at the recent Great Lakes Chapter meeting, a diversion can often be helpful to keep the client occupied so we can be more productive with our inspection time on site.
If you are a "one inspector" operation, you may want to create a notebook / scrapbook to have at the site for the client to peruse while you're inspecting. This can also be a "Marketing Tool" used to educate the realtors and sellers (potential clients) as to your many outstanding qualities. It can be designed as you choose and can contain such items as: NACHI certificates, state license, training or continuing education certificates, degrees, Code of Ethics, Standards of Practice, articles on HI, remodeling, building, fire safety, community info. for newcomers, etc. (the list is only limited by your creativity) (You may want to avoid articles about Home Inspectors being sued by Homeowners, keep it positive!)
The more progressive and upscale Home Inspection operations may want to use a computer generated, interactive presentation on a lap top.
Just another inexpensive (notebook) way to help market yourself while hopefully making your on site work a little easier.
Have a GREAT DAY! ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)
