The truth about HomeGauge

Real testimonials from our Inspectors


“Every time I have ever spoken with a HomeGauge employee I have hung up the phone thinking this is a company I like doing business with.”

Dan J from MA


“I started with this software in 2003 when we established our business. It has had so many upgrades along the way. I have had so many colleagues use other software over the years and had to switch because of lack of support, no upgrades and software companies going out of business. I’m glad I made the right choice initially with Homegauge. I’ve had a lot of colleagues switch to it.”

Bill S.


“The software is easily customized by the user, the support from Homegauge has been outstanding over the years and the software is always been improving and upgradeable.”

Capterra Review


“5-star experience. Pure and simple. Home Inspectors want support when they need it, but even more than that, they want to spend MORE time doing inspections instead of writing reports! With the Desktop HG app AND my mobile app with dictating capability. I have 90% of my report writing DONE while I am in the field doing the inspection. Bottom line: HG inspection software and their professional reports get me more business and make me more money!”
