Is Inspect & Cloud worth it?
Our customers can save up to 80% of the entire process from inspections, to photo formatting, the move in/out process, etc. It actually cost you to NOT use a tool like Inspect & Cloud. Extra communication time, extra time/gas trips to office getting assignments, error free move out processing, and savings from employee resources adds up when you speed up, automate and streamline the inspection process.
How much does it actually save me?
One example would be if you paid a staff person $10 per hr 8 hrs per day and they completed the same work in 6 hrs instead of 8hrs. This would equate to 10 hours a week. If you have 5 inspectors then multiply that x5. Overall employees can be more productive for their work day versus a clipboard and it saves the entire office time and resources.
Can I charge for inspection reports?
What you charge for reports are up to you. We recommend checking with your local states licensing laws. Most states regulate property managers and require you to be a licensed home inspector to use the term inspector to the general public. However many licensed property managers take on the responsibility to track the up keep and maintenance of property conditions therefore this requires frequent property checks aka property management inspections.
Inspect & Cloud allows users to customize the title names of their reports such as Property Assessment, Evaluation Reports, or even a customized name you chose. Many of our property managers charge property check fees which can sometimes more than pay for your monthly membership.
