Good morning, Michael, Depends on which inspector is used, but I ususally receive it the same day or within 48 hours. Of couse, the sooner the better.
No later than 24 hours...the sooner the better so that any issues can be discussed and other contractors brought in if necessary.
Either later the same day or the next day, which is more than fine. The buyers and I can discuss in general what we *think* we heard at the inspection, and the written report just confirms it.
The inspectors I recommend typically provide me a report on-line within 24 hours, which is a perfectly acceptably time frame.
Michael, it just depends on who my buyers use. Typically it is by the next day though. I do like to have it asap so we can discuss and make decisions! It is quite frustrating when we have to wait and wait, and it has happened. But never with someone I recommend!
Most of the time it is the next day. If the buyer or agent goes to the inspection, they know what the major issues are. It is always nice to have the report though.
It depends on the inspection company. I have inspections done where the inspector provided the client a full inspection report printed out at the end of the inspection. The report contained photos of the problems as well as the thermal imaging. Other inspection companies I have used usually email the results later that day or by the next day, depending on the time of inspection.
Late the same day with pix of the problem areas. I encourage Buyers to get there at the end with me and have the inspector physically show us his concerns.
Same day. Some give a one page 'serious issues' report on site and email the rest with numerous pictures. A few still print the report out on site.
Same day. Usually we are under a time crunch so really, there's no other option.
Same day usually. one inspector i like sends email copy, but also carries a printer with him and prints a copy out at the house when he's finished with inspection.
Inspector commits to next AM before 9. Usually received around 10 pm same day.
My thoughts? Good inspectors with good written communication skills that do not tramatize the buyer or seller are rare.
Morning Michael they furnish them the same day. As long as it is within the 10 day limit here it really doesn't matter
Good morning Michael;
Typically, my home inspector furnishes the full report findings the next morning...we both encourage the buyer to be present, because here at the beach, house construction is quite different than it is inland. The home inspector is thorough, and takes the time to educate my buyers on the major components and systems, and why things were installed in a certain fashion. So by the time the report comes out, we all know already what it will say, and there are no surprises.
Because my market is primarily second homes and investment properties on the Outer Banks of NC, sometimes the buyers simply cannot be present for the home inspection. I am present at EVERY inspection, whether it's the home, pest, fireplace, pool, or septic. If there's an issue, I want to know about it, and just like my buyers, I want to ask questions and learn more. I am still learning new things as a result of being present at these inspections.
We prefer the same day, but if the inpection is not until the afternoon, we understand that the inspector is human and has a family life, plus is probably dog tired, so the next day is fine.

they furnish the report at the latest the next day....but often after the inspection is done....
Michael --- typically issued the same day but an on-site review of his/her findings with the client. It used to be delivered on-site but that seems to have gone away with our move to a paperless way of life. I think the same day works best.
Michael, our area inspectors are very busy and if we get the report the next day that is great. It is a concern with some inspectors as they will get the report to us a day or two before the response is due!!! Next day is great!
Normally same day. No later than early next day.

It is not unreasonable to get a home inspection in two to three days. Expecting it in one day would be as a result of some kind of emergency.

The home inspector sends it out the same day, which is nice. I dont want until the end of the inspection period regardess. Like to get the home inspector in as soon as we can, that way if he finds something else and need to bring in plumber, or electrican, etc. we have the time (days) to do it.
Usually the same day.
I have gotten them on the same day of inspection and the next day. It usually doesn't matter.
Depends on the time and the property. I ususally get a verbal report right away.
