The review dated Jan. 16 2018 obviously is not a user of the software, most likely a competitor.

2018-01-29

Pros

User input is used to design the software, most updates are programmed because inspectors have asked for features and HIP uses that input to make improvements.

Pros

Best mobile and photo reporting possible with great final product appearance .Support is amazing and well known to be the best .The other guy saying it was bad must be off his rocker.

Cons

Can take a while to set up but once done it is easy.Wish some of the features were a little more photo focused .

Response from Home Inspector Pro


Hi Noel,

I'm sorry to hear you're disappointed but we are far from a mid level reporting software. In fact more people using Home Inspector Pro than any other software program. Our tech support hours are doubled everyone else in the industry, 7 days a week.

You're right, we chose to create the best home inspection software on the market, not a combination of mediocre office management and inspection software like our competitors. The majority of our users use Inspection Support Network (ISN) for all their office needs which we fully integrate with so we can focus on the being the only software with video in PDF & HTML, popup glossaries, stationery and more.

More of our developers actually use Mac machines versus Windows. The software is 100% the same between Mac and Windows so the video tutorials apply to both programs.

Video works great and has for years. Try giving our support team a call at 888-750-4777 and they can help you out with all of your comments/questions.

Absolutely love Home Inspector Pro! Awesome support, completely Mac compatible, great time saver!

2017-07-15

Ease of use, faster inspection report writing, professional report appearance with the ability to customize it to my personal preference, batch adding pictures which is AWESOME, the ability to use videos in my reports, glossary to help clients understand the technical side of things, and that is just a little of what Home Inspector Pro software is capable of.

Pros

You can tell they truly care about their clients and their experience and respond quickly to any questions or issues.

Cons

It does take awhile to set up to personal preference, but any software in our profession does so it isn't really a con to a specific program.

I would recommend Home Inspector Pro to any inspector if they really want to succeed.

2009-03-20

I have many sample reports on my website at www.oklahomahomeinspector.biz.

Pros

This software is by far the best home inspection software I have found. The price was perfect. It wasn't outrageously priced like many of the other. Best of all is the customer support. I have never done business with any company that has this level of customer support. To top things off, if you ever have any home inspection questions there are tons of inspectors on the message board ready and willing to help you out. Its like one big family at Home Inspector Pro. I just cant say enough good things about this software, the company, and the owner!

Cons

Developed my own template from scratch before I realized many inspectors on the Home Inspector Pro message board will share what they already have.
