If they are going to give you a backlog of 149

all at the same time, and you can make a good route of it, you can make a few bucks. The inspections are probably FNMA QC's, REO properties, so there is no risk associated with them like a PCR or Vacant Property Inspection.

20 minutes to inspect well in most cases, 10-15 minutes to report, and drive time. Also you must generate your own invoice, no automated process.

Ask them for $25, if they have that kind of backlog, or at least on the further ones.

You can do much better time wise but those are good numbers to start.

So, you can bring in $40 and hour or so at first, not great, but it doesn't take a lot of resources and it's low risk.

DEA is a 3rd party QC. I know you've done Fannie Mae routine work for AMS so you should be familiar with the idiocracy and incompetence of the DEA inspectors....you know, the guys that fail a yard for walnuts on the drive when the wind is blowing 35 mph, or fail an interior because a paperclip was left in the back of that drawer. Sign with them, they could use a common sense person like yourself.

haha

Im not going to do it.. there is no point, only reason i would is to get back at some of the shady vendors at safeguard.. but that ship has sailed. i Have made more in plowing in a month then i did with ****guard.. I just found it odd they called.. Never signed up with them nor do i know anything..

Not going to do work for someone that i have no info on and risk never getting paid.

Well that's up to you.

I was just giving you some realistic info. I did some for them, I also had other motives.

ANY doors that aren?t re-keyed to a HUD lock- please just do it.. I assume they all can re-key. If the signs aren?t posted in the correct location, please fix. Any safety hazards- if they see a safety hazard and are willing to fix it, go ahead and just do it; so inapections now include safty hazards? Ok lol

That's something else, obviously not the FNMA QC's DEA usually does.

Frannie Mae are changing their inspections to a more very intense and detailed inspections being required by January 1st, 2016 if your not a general licensed contractor on these you won't be able to preform these inspections for Fannie Mae.
