Unique solutions for changing markets
Home inspections, like the real estate market have changed dramatically in the past 25 years. As technology advances and consumers become more web-savvy, there is a greater need for products and services that can keep pace.

How does it work?
Seamless reporting and sharing...
Home inspection reports produced on the web are typically in PDF format. They can be downloaded and printed easily without a loss of quality. They can be stored on a hard drive or removable media, and kept available online indefinitely.
Inspection reports are the inspection client's property, and they can choose to share reports with friends and family, lenders, insurance companies and other interested parties. The duplication and transmittal of reports is effectively free, since the reports are available on a web page, and the link to the web page is simply e-mailed to the recipient.

Great article, and good positive points. However, in my experience as a report verifier a common problem with (computerized) web-based reports is assuring that the actual report meets the Standards of Practice as a minimum. Occasionally, I would find a report that had many photo conditions, but little detail about the impact this had on the "client". Of course this can also happen in a paper based more traditional report too.

Better report writing systems, such as HORIZON clearly indicate the implications of property conditions noted by the home inspector.
