The most important goal of our inspections is to help our client understand the subject property. One of the most effective ways we do that is to review our findings with photographs on site at the end of the inspection. This process enables us to clearly convey our findings to our client.
If the seller is there, and/or the listing agent, and, if everything is friendly and copacetic, and, very importantly, if our client agrees, often we invite the seller and listing agent to see our photographs and hear our summary. This enables everyone to be on the same page and expedites the inspection part of the real estate transaction. It can also greatly assist in negotiations (if there are any). Our summary is done with a cool, calm, collected, non-alarmist approach. When we are done, everybody leaves the inspection pleased that they know and understand our inspection findings.
