Be proud of the reports you produce. Spectora gives home inspection reports the modern web-based experience clients and agents love.
Clean and intuitive, Spectora reports are easy to read on web or mobile devices. We built our web-based reports from the ground-up based on agent and client feedback.
Today's world is all about efficiency - research shows that buyers and agents don't read lengthy text. Spectora reports prominently display images and videos and we write our base templates as concisely as possible.
Client- and agent-focused organization
Visual focus is on the client's and agent's top priority - the deficiencies. Descriptive information is available when a client needs it down the road.
Sidebar navigation and jump links let clients and agents find the information they need quickly.
Clients and agents can filter by high priority items, all deficiencies, or the full report. Give your clients the ease of seeing only what they need to.
Expandable text areas
Instead of large walls of text, long comments are stored in expandable text areas that keep the report clean and approachable.
Clients can view any photo in a full-screen lightbox to examine those hard-to-see details.
Quick contact links
Your client can call or email you with one touch.
Agents love helpful tools like the Repair Request Builder.
Visually appealing PDF output for those wanting the low-tech approach. We even have TREC, Texas WDI, NPMA-33 and Florida Wind Mitigation PDF outputs!
How fast you write reports all depends on where you start.
Start smart with ASHI and InterNACHI templates each prepopulated with 400+ comments. Or grab a template from our Template Center, which includes dozens of templates shared by top inspectors totaling over 100,000 narratives.
Create multiple templates. Add, update, or remove anything. Set default text and photos that will automatically be included in reports.
Update as you go
Add to your template directly from the report writer. You'll never have to enter the same thing twice.
Our platform also allows direct template sharing between inspectors. We see members of the Spectora community share templates with each other daily!
Time is money. Use efficient software with the fastest learning curve in the industry.
Minimal clutter and an open feel let you focus on what's important. Comments show and hide based on whether an item is inspected, not inspected, not present, or deficient. No more looking through hundreds of irrelevant comments.
Designed for ease-of-use
Seamless mobile app integration, drag-and-drop photo additions, built-in recommendations list, and HTML text editing make our report writing the easiest and fastest on the market.
