MCS the new Safeguard?
Received an email about 2 weeks ago from a former LPS RNM who is now with a large regional out of Arizona. He was looking for help covering P&P and inspections in our area. He's a great guy and I would have loved to help him but of course the numbers didn't work. Yesterday a vendor recruiter from MCS contacted us by email, then through LinkedIn, then by phone. I'm talking a full court press that would have made Dean Smith proud. So I say what the heck send over some pricing.
It's laughable $6-8.00 for an inspection? How is this even possible?
Why are contractors in this industry being fed numbers from a national then looking internally for ways to make it work? The national is saying here is what we are going to pay and the BOTG is saying "I think I can make that work? I don't want to lose this client. They have so much volume." Why are the BOTG not setting their own pricing? Why are you guys not doing what is best for you instead of trying to fit into the business model that makes the national work?
I look at these numbers put out by the bottom feeders and I don't blame them. Why pay more than they have to? I blame the guy that signs up with them. He's the one taking a crappy price and doing a crappy job. He's the one keeping them in business. The BOTG is as much the problem as the regionals, and nationals.
The banks, hud, Freddie, even Fannie pay decent it's all the hands in the pie that screw the BOTG yet he keeps them in business.
