I have been studying the home inspection business and was recently certified by ICA in Chicago. I’m finding InterNACHI online education to be far superior. I’m getting all my ducks in a row to get my business off the ground and have started a mock inspection in my own home. I need an example to provide for a few insurance quotes. I am familiar with residential home construction but am green to the inspection process in terms of hands on experience.
My question relates to the Spectora inspection software that I have on my phone. It seems all the major issues are prepopulated in the app which makes it easy to kind of breeze through and check the boxes. I’m concerned of becoming complacent or too dependent on the app. Does anyone have any basic template ideas for Spectora they noticed missing for general defects? Am I ok to use the app as a guide for my inspection process? Once everything is checked green and the inspection is complete I’m concerned I may have overlooked something.
I guess I’m trying to find a way to tailor the app to an inspection process so that I’m not bouncing between the sequence of events of the inspection from start to finish as its laid out in my head, and the layout of the app by default.
I’m open to any feedback as it pertains to setting up Spectora for new inspectors, but also open to anything New to this stuff and still filling in the gaps.
