Same-day reporting: I often hear of clients waiting until the next day or longer to receive their inspection report. I feel this is unacceptable given the fast pace and nature of the real estate market. You shouldn’t have to wait for the results of your inspection and with Up Close, you won’t! You’ll have everything you need to know in a matter of hours, on the same day I inspect the property. All of my home inspection reports are prepared exclusively with state-of-the-art HomeGauge inspection software.
