Hello fellow inspectors -
I’m looking for some ideas, and input. I have done my presentation to a client 2 different ways, and was wondering what others do, and what do you think is more effective.
When my inspection was complete, I took them around, and showed them MOST of what I had discovered, in person. This led to adding on an additional hour to my total time, if not more.
When my inspection was complete, I loaded my photos onto my laptop, and showed them each photo, explained why I took it, what I would recommend, and moved to the next photo. This cut down the time to about 1/3.
After both ways, I always tell them they will have my report emailed to them within 24hrs. Both ways seem to produce a happy client. I am just wondering what you fellow inspectors find to produce the best results.
I do know my time is important, and if there is a way I can cut down on my time in the field, yet not sacrafice the quality of my work, I am all for it. I am leaning towards just showing the evidence on my laptop vs giving them a full fledged tour of the home.
Thank for reading.
