How Spectora Home Inspection Reports Help Real Estate Agents!

By on June 27, 2018

As a home inspector I use many tools in my daily work life.  Most of those tools I carry with me on my tool belt and they help me as I go through my inspection process on site in a home for a client.  However, there is one tool that I use that is perhaps one of my most important utilities in my daily work… and that is my inspection reporting software.

For my inspection software I wanted to choose a modern tool that I felt was truly easy to navigate for myself of course, but also for my client the home owner, and the agent as well.  For the task of finding this magical software I enlisted the help of my wife, who is a software consultant. That is when we found Spectora, which produces truly modern home inspection reports which help our clients and agents to easily digest some very important information about the condition of a home.

In this post, I wanted to try to educate the agents that I work with so that they can hopefully save time and work more efficiently for their clients’ {and mine}, the home buyer.

Here is a look at how Spectora can help realtors to understand and navigate my home inspection reports!

What each of these points mean to you the Realtor!

1) TABLE OF CONTENTS AND JUMP LINKS
A side table of contents allows you to easily jump to any section to quickly see images and get the information you need.

2) REPORT FILTERS
Easy filters allow you to dynamically change the report to only show the major safety items or all defects.

3) SUMMARY
Quick summary shows you how many item were inspected (may not show on your inspection reports as this is an optional feature) so it keeps the defects in perspective to your client.

This also shows how many big ticket items you need to negotiate for.

4) PDF & PDF SUMMARY
View the PDF version of the report or download the PDF Summary to attach to your Montana repair/ request document.

5) DEFICIENCIES 1-CLICK COPY & PASTE TEST
Easily copy and paste my inspector “lingo” into your repair -request document with the Deficiencies Text Generator.

6) AGENT CO-BRANDING
Stay top-of-mind with clients and align yourself with an inspector that uses cutting-edge technology and the latest tools. Clients can click directly from the report to email or call you with questions.

 

I hope this will help you to use my inspection reports to make your work easier!  If you have any questions about navigating your inspection report and bringing the important information into your own agent documents such as the Montana Repair – Request forms, please do give me a ring.. and I’d be happy to personally meet with you to help you to understand how to best leverage this tool for your interactions with the home buyer!
