Excellent software with useful features
HomeGauge is an excellent program for writing home inspection reports and much more. They have very useful features like scheduling appointments online, and sending contracts for clients to read and sign electronically.
The software is advanced and elaborate, you can customize your templates and report styles as needed. The reports are detailed, well organized and user friendly, with both pictures and narrative. Tech support is excellent, above and beyond any tech support I got from other companies in years.
Nachteile: The price is a bit high. It's especially tough in the winter, when there's not much work and income. And if you need the NPMA-33 form.(If you don't use it often, you can find the form online for free thru HUD, fill it out and attach it to your report as PDF)

Glorified Checklist / Windows & Android ONLY / Crashes on iOS
Kommentare: HomeGauge was a nice interim tool to have, when I was just getting started in the RV inspection business, since there was already a template available for that industry and I wasn't getting that much work, anyway. But the time it takes to input additional details, during the inspection and the checklist approach makes it impractical, going forward. The iOS implementation is so poor that I'm surprised that it passed Apple's internal review process. I'm told that it's more reliable on Android, but I'm not going to buy another device, just because one app won't run on my iPhone. Instead, I've signed up with iAuditor, which I should mention, runs flawlessly on iOS. When I first started using HomeGauge, I thought it was great. It certainly makes it a lot easier to generate a 60 to 120 page report, than if I had to do it all in Word. But over time, especially as I became a lot busier, I began to realize that there had to be something better. In particular, I felt stifled by the lack of LOGIC FLOW ("IF/THEN" branches). I just went back and looked at my last HomeGauge report, to count how many times I checked "Exclude". I stopped counting at 100 and wasn't half way through the report. No logic, a broken iOS implementation, Windows Only, and no color coding, leaves them wanting. I give them an "E" for effort. But there are other products that do far more, for less money (see my review of iAuditor).
Vorteile: I started using HomeGauge because there was already a tested and functional template for RV inspectors available, which meant that when I started my business, I didn't have to start cold. So the fact that someone had already done the heavy lifting of creating the templates for RV inspections, made my life much easier than if I had to create the entire report in Word. HomeGauge generates an "acceptable" report from what is no more than a glorified checklist. However, it should be noted that the structure of the report can be somewhat confusing. It's supposed to have a scheduling feature. But it doesn't integrate with my MacOS/iOS/iCloud calendar, so that feature is useless for Mac users. I can't speak to how it functions in Windows.
Nachteile: 1) Although they have an iOS version, that app crashes on average, 3 times during a 6 to 8 hour inspection. When that happens, you lose between 1 and 15 minutes of your most recent work (most often around 5 to 7 minutes). 2) HomeGauge is no more than a glorified check list. In that limited function, it's OK. But there is NO LOGIC component - no way to skip portions of the inspection that don't apply, based on what box was checked. I inspect RVs and RV's come in many configurations. Since there is no logic, I have to waste time checking X (Exclude) repeatedly, for all inspection items on the "checklist" that doesn't apply. I've switched to iAuditor because in that app, if I check the box for "all electric", more than 40 propane questions never even show up. I don't have to answer questions about 6 A/Cs, if there is only one. 3) Other than the buggy iOS app, it runs only on Windows and Android. If you're using a Mac, you have to install Parallels and MSWindows, in order to run HomeGauge. That adds to the cost of the product. But worse yet, when you're running an app in Windows, many of usability features Mac users have come to rely on, are not available. None of my numerous text shortcuts are not available in HomeGauge. This is an operating system feature. I can't drag and drop photos from my iPhone into the desktop version. Those features work in all MacOS apps and in any browser. They just don't work in HomeGauge, since it requires Windows. 4) No color coding.

Kommentare: We have Many copies of this software and were hardcore supporters for many years, The delay in updates forced us to go in a different direction and while we paid for services for many years that we really did not use as part of our profile when we cancelled services we were cut off from our stored reports. and as there is not a good backup system, these are not available to us
Vorteile: Fairly easy to use with a minor learning curve. has the ability to use a mobile version that speeds up the process. Great customer service.
Nachteile: The overall look and feel of the program is a bit behind the times however is better than some. The ties to third parties are a bit concerning. The worst part is that you are forced to pay a monthly fee in order to integrate the mobile software (although there are some ways around it) and it is not a live software so data loss from equipment failure is a concern and the ability to store photos outside of the program is tricky and you have to install a secondary camera app in order to have the photos accessible in you gallery.

Vorteile: The flexibility to personalize the concerns to fit your needs and how easily it can be completed while in the field
Nachteile: Concerns need to prioritized more easily so the the major concerns dont get mixed in with those that are minor

Perfect software for Home Inspectors!
Vorteile: Easy to use and great looking reports. High quality pictures can easily be attached right in the reports and they come across very nice! The reports are very customizable and allow me to make them my own for my business.
Nachteile: There are almost too many features. While easy to use, learning how to use all of the features is daunting and limits how useful it is to have so many. Radon test results are geared toward using their service and do not present local lab results well. Doesn't integrate to DOE for home energy scores.
