Monthly $100 contest for 12 months: Video clip of the month with Cash Prizes!

Each month we will feature at least one inspector (maybe more) and they will each receive $100 and recognition on our website!

Double Down Entries Get $200!
Video clip of the month featured video entries will receive an extra $100.00 ($200 total) if the last report they uploaded has at least 2 video clips in the report (see rules). Demonstrating regular use of video in your reports gets you an extra hundred bucks and gives you stand out status in your town!

Entering is easy! Easy! EASY!



Just upload your report containing at least 1 video, and find the button (shown above) to submit that report in your list of uploaded reports on HomeGauge.com. It's that easy!

Contest Tips:
Submit each month (up to 4 times a month). We not only look for wow defects, but also good descriptions or info you give to your customer, safety tips, nice pans of the yard for the cover page that may include greetings or introductions to your company, describing unknowns based on signs like drainage, etc., or short clean descriptions of the water shut off locations or filter locations. We’re looking for creativity and usefulness.

Contest Rules:

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Free trial users are eligible to enter.

  1. Entries must use HomeGauge 5 Software and HomeGauge Services.
  2. Video clip must be submitted in an uploaded inspection report. If desired, you can duplicate the real report in the HG software and change any private information and even exclude all other sections. Or, you can identify the item # in the report for submittal. Send the report link to contest@homegauge.com or submit using the button next to your uploaded report. Note that if we display any content from a report, we will remove any private information first. We will not share any of your customers or agents private information. Depending on the report, we may pull out just the video itself if we want to showcase it, removing it from any identifying information.
  3. Any report you submit must have been uploaded within the last 30 days from the date of submittal. If you want to submit an older report, you will need to upload a new copy first.
  4. Winners will be announced in subsequent news alerts and whether or not they won the Double Down or 5x odds. You can win more than once.
  5. Any entry or video clip submitted can be used for HG promotional purposes without any compensation to the entrant.
  6. You may enter up to 4 times a month for the random drawings. You are encouraged to enter as many times each month as you like for the Video of the Month awards.
  7. Double Down winners are determined before the winners are announced in the news alert. Once we select the winner of the video clip of the month, we will immediately look at the winner’s last uploaded report “folder” to see if there are 2 video clips in the report. If so, the winner receives double the original amount.
  8. 5x odds winners are determined immediately after the drawing. We will choose 3 reports at random from the instant winner's uploaded reports . If all three reports have 3 video clips or more in each report, they qualify and win 5x odds. A report must be real and customer viewed to be selected as the 3 reports. Selection of the 3 reports will be from the last 30 days from drawing date.
  9. All decisions are final, informal and at our sole discretion.
  10. Cash winners are subject to taxes.
