Home inspections are in high demand with several buyers seeking to take advantage of a thriving real estate market.
Paperless pre purchase inspection apps are increasingly being used by many inspectors providing home inspection services. A traditional inspection would involve the person physically inspecting the property and writing an extensive report on every aspect of the property from stumps and frame to flooring and paintwork. After spending considerable time in the field completing these pre purchase inspection reports, the inspector has to convert the handwritten notes and photos into a cohesive report at the office, spending an equal amount of time simply duplicating the field effort.
The new paperless pre purchase inspection apps have been designed to eliminate this duplication. Once loaded onto a mobile device such as an iPhone, iPad or Android tablet, the inspector can enter the field notes onsite in real time complete with photographs.
Paperless pre purchase questionnaires or checklists can be sent from a central database to the mobile device, with the inspector or field operator simply going through the required questions, adding photographs of the property, recording audio notes (converted to text in real time) and sending the completed report back to the database wirelessly using 4G, Hot Spot or Wi-Fi.
Once the pre purchase information is received by the database, the data is added to a report template and then sent to the client via email or posted via a web portal to the provider’s web site.
The paperless pre purchase inspection app cuts down the time, effort and cost of a full pre purchase report. The app can be downloaded directly to the mobile device via the App Store or Google Play.
