  2. Read this story to see how a single missing comma recently cost a Maine company $10 million. Commas matter. Words matter more. Make sure your reports are written in such a way that they are impossible to misunderstand.

  5. There was a good article on inspection photography written by Jay Hensleigh in the ASHI Reporter a while back. http://www.ashireporter.org/HomeInspection/Articles/Inspection-Photos-Worth-One-Thousand-Words/9619

  6. Take lots of pictures. Reports should be taken as a whole which has to include photos. Good picture taking is essential to a good report. A wide shot and then a good close-up of any important problems can be enlightening, and may require less narrative. A picture is worth a 1000 words, or as the Chinese say, "1001 words is better than a picture."

  7. Wow. I'm honored, and quite frankly a little horrified, that one of my reports was selected for this piece. Thank you. I learned something. No, I won't identify my work.😉

  8. That article really drives the point home. I like the view that inspecting the house is half the job. Writing the report is the other half. Did I get the grammar right?

  9. Thanks, Jim. I've committed to following your advice. It's not easy to let go of bad habits. The reward will be clients who are better served through easier to read reports.
