Home Inspector Pro 4.5.3 is now out! We are the first software company in the industry to allow inspectors to perform Department of Energy Home Energy Scores! This is HUUUGE! The FHA will give all buyers 2% more $$ if the home has a 6 or above. If it has less than a 6 they can roll the costs of improvement into the loan. MLS databases around the country are now adding Home Energy Score fields into their listings which means real estate sites like Realtor.com will start showing this soon as well.
To download HIP 4.5.3 log into our site (http://www.HomeInspectorPro.com) and click on Home Inspector Pro Downloads on the left.
