I had a discussion with a agent this morning over coffee about the number of pages for inspection reports. He stated that all he really like to see as far as the number of pages are any where from 5-25 pages that includes a summary page at the front at the most. Well I have found that I have been including to much information in my reports IE: type of flooring, wall covering, etc for every room in the house, any health or safety issues with photos. I felt I was providing a service for my clients with this information. So I called a inspector friend and asked him what he is reporting on in his reports, and how many printed pages did he end up with including photos? He stated he ended up with 16 pages with summary. He stated that he only includes exterior foundation, roof, electrical condition. Interior, kitchen, bathrooms, electrical, windows/doors, and mechanicals. He stated that if he saw a safety issue in the other rooms he would call them out in the report. So what say you to how many pages and what you are looking for in a inspection report? Thanks for reading my blog and may you have many happy sales and inspections.
