Check out what your competition is doing, and then do better.
Most of my competition uses same-day checklist reports. The problem with them is that out of the 20 pages, only 5 pages apply when all is said, done, and checked. The other problem is that site-specific information or problems that have to be written can be difficult to decipher days, weeks, or months later.
I have a proprietary software program that exports to Word where I include color-coded text and pictures. My Clients and Realtors love the color coding and the pictures. And computer text is always easy to read. I issue reports the next day. It's never been a problem after I explain why I issue a report the next day. They appreciate my extra efforts on their behalf.
