The other use for it would be if you copied each onto paper and created a file you keep on your inspection truck. You can attach your business card to each printout. On inspections where these issues arise you can include these sheets in your report, give them to your client, and give them to the REALTOR. You could even leave related one’s for the seller to find. Every seller is likely a local buyer. It’s the little extra things you do on an inspection that really count. Remember: Every inspection you peform is a marketing opportunity!


Each condensed page we're developing is created of governement public-domain literature and our own words, so you don't have to worry about copyright infringement.

Here is how to make a clean copy of any of them: http://www.nachi.org/myowncopy.htm

Great idea to keep some copies in the truck. Great work, Nick…huge help as NACHI always is.


How about something on manufactures housing? Doing my first one today, and have found lots of helpful info on the message boards.


Will let everyone know how today’s inspection goes.


I think the “home” is older, probably near the end of it’s useful life.


We shall see.

I’ll have one done on manufactured housing for you.


In fact... if you all think of any subject, any subject at all, we'll build a royalty-free condensed page for you to point to online or copy to keep on your truck.

This is all great stuff and very helpful. And later when we want to find something like this or search for something like this, how do we do that?


Does www.nachi.org have an index or site map to find things?

Within a few weeks we’ll have over 50 of these. They have yet to be cleaned up (all pics in place, checked for grammar, expanded text) but we’ll get to them.


Then we'll list them all with an index on consumer sites Chris is building such as http://www.aboutnachi.org

A work in progress.

GREAT!!


I can make some clean copies and hand them out with my inspection reports to the client. Nothing like giving some educational material to the client after you tell them what you found. This will give us an advantage in the education aspect of the report since many people don't have a clue on what basic maintenance issue can prevent .


Nick, can you get / make one for gutter / drainage systems. Proper (improper) drainage is HUGE around my part and we see soooooo many problems with little or no maintenance with respect to keeping gutters and drainage systems clean, effective and present. The sad part we see is many houses could have avoided major foundation and structural problems if those gutters were present ,clean and working properly....

This is really great stuff. I do caution you though that if you plan to use these now you should follow the download/copy directions and then run a good spell checker on the file. I used the one on Wells and found numerous typos. Did I mention this is really good stuff? ![icon_smile.gif](upload://b6iczyK1ETUUqRUc4PAkX83GF2O.gif)
