Thank you for the feedback everyone. I researched home inspector software for over three years and found HomeGauge to be #1. Russel and gang are great people and it's obvious they're a solid company.
As I stated in my post, my issues revolve around the money, time, process changes, and more. On top of that, my market seems to be slow in adopting technolgy. Most HI's in my area use a paper report.
I have some Realtors who say they will not use an HI who uses a compter-generated report and others say they will use me more, if not exclusively, if I do start using a computer-generated report. So I haven't pulled the trigger on purchasing software for these reasons.
I did test drive HG and it's great. But on top of the $895.00 for the software I felt like I also had to sign up for the $450 annual web hosting (and other benefits) to receive the full benefits of HG. Too much money just to see if it will work for me.
However, in all honesty, its more about the work and learning curve involved in the transition, on top of everything else I'm working on (marketing, Radon certification, ICC certification, and more) than it is about the $$.
Dominic, I'll call you next week so I can ask you some questions about HIP.
For $349.00 I think I'll give it a shot. Even if I end up going with HG some day, HIP will atleast get me moving in the right direction at a reasonable fee.
