If you mean the drive by type, most of them only pay $3-$6. If you mean the door knock hand them the phone to their lender type, good luck. We did that for a bit using moms and grannies and it just wasn't worth it for anyone but the National that sent them over.

how can you justify 5-7.00 per house inspections really is a waste of time and gas.

that would be a goldmine if you could get the town home cities that went up around here. I was just at one where I can look down the road and name 10 properties I have been to in the last year. If you could just get the homeowners to all stop paying at the same time you could make a fortune.

Having done inspections etc myself I would not want my wife doing them alone!


I don't want her doing QCs by herself.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

I'll second that... Inspections can get ugly. I've done them enough to know its not worth the risk and the pay really does not justify the effort. Pure drive by inspections don't exist around here. They all require that you walk the property now and make contact unless it is bankrupt inspection. They want utility meter pics too.

Then they want you to print the papers in the door hangers and even the notices and crap. The best company I dealt with was 24hr corp. Just another cheap sub of the nationals, but Chris does pay once a month without drama if you take enough pics.

MSC was horrible, BAC sucked, LPS was actually OK. 24hr subs for SG and Wells in my area. But, its a black hole. They all want you to work for free and drive the wheels off your car. Plus your always trespassing to complete the $3-$8 inspections. Your better off doing almost anything else.

Had a buddy from Missouri get backcharged a $6 inspection times 6 months from Safeguard for a property from over 2 years ago. They claimed the owner was dead and couldn't have been at the house. It was the old guys brother who was living there at the time. Yeah, they are worth it alright.
