Try putting in defect photos and certified seals instead, sell yourself more. Just a thought.

Maybe a powerpoint based on images rather than words?

Agree.

I like to have both images and words as some are sold on one or the other or both plus they compliment each other as well.

Does their realtor do this? In this detail? Mine did not!
Should I not be managing my clients expectations?
Does the realtor really want the buyer or seller to get a home inspection?

Not your job. Your job stops at supplying your client with a complete, un-biased home inspection. Don't get involved in any part of the buying / selling process.

Default Inspection flowchart

I personally live flow charts but I see no real value on this one. I mean the whole purchase process is much more complicated than just our piece of it. I mean their are many reasons why desks take turns for the worse. Appraisals, mortgages, missed deadlines, etc. the inspection is just one piece of the total puzzle.
