The Inspection Report

Home Inspection Seekers – Why do you need to see a sample inspection report?

The inspection report helps guide the inspector through the inspection process, the more detailed the inspection report is, well the more detailed your inspection will be. The inspection report is after all the only tangible record you are left with for your $290 to $900 home inspection cost as well.

Just like inspectors, all reports are not created equal

There is a huge difference between one report and another, and it all starts with the inspection software. The more detailed the report, the more detailed the inspection. As a Pro-Sight Property Inspections Inspector Member we have access to hands down the Superior inspection report in the industry.

What should you look for in a home inspection report?

  • Is it detailed.
  • Is it written in legalize or in plain English.
  • Are there photos along with the deficiencies / issues which were found.
  • Do you understand what you are looking at in the photos, circles, arrows, and a description next to the photo helps immensely.
  • Is their a summary section. Pro-Sight’s report has two summary sections, one for Comments and one for Issues:
  • Comments: General information and marginal items. Please note, some items that are marginal can, over time, turn into major issues if not attended to, repaired or replaced.
    Issues:
    These are items that need repair or replacement and/or additional evaluation by a licensed contractor or certified technician. Safety hazards and/or safety enhancement recommendations are also listed as issues.
  • Does the report educate you about the major components of the house, our report certainly does.
