honyocktrapper That's not enough money. All that running and wear and tear on your auto and don't forget uploading information. Again, it's another screw job. This is something "they" cannot do from their carpeted cubical. They rely on you.

GTX63 Depending on your area, I would encourage you to add the nationals you do inspections for to your resume, and submit bids to your local bank repo departments for maybe 60% of the prices your current clients are billing out. You could potentially make 3-4 times what you are now per inspection with much less effort and wear on your vehicles, and if the lenders in your area are like ours, would be ecstatic over what you would be giving them for that price.

ALS9386 No in the beginning there pay nine dollars inspection ,then they offered me the same inspections for three dollars so I turned it down. But now they offered me a different zone at eight dollars so I'm considering taking it.

Then the calculations I listed above can be halved. Most of the nationals providing volume inspections send them out usually twice per month. You may get a batch of 100 on the 5th, due on the 7th. However, they may continue to trickle in after the 5th, yet still due about the same time. I'm sure inspectors familiar with these companies know the feeling of driving out in the boondocks to get the out of the way PO Boxes and then coming home to find 1 or 2 more for that zone with nothing else in the area to offset the costs.

I don't care if they are right next door you CANNOT make a living at $3 a pop! These are being billed out at AT LEAST $25 so SCREWGUARD lives up to their name yet again!!!!!

Inspections from Nationals pay anywhere from $3-$10. The positive is that you are out on your own. Safeguard does cross breed their vendors in REO and inspections from time to time, likely due to a shortage of contractors in that area.

Typical occupancy checks require photos of the street view, front and sides of the house, address, utility meters, violations or safety issues and a reason why you believe the house is occupied or not. $40 per day X $6 is $240 minus fuel, miles on car, meals, etc. Maybe 6 hours/200 miles on the road if it is only urban or one or two counties and then a couple hours to upload. The Nat usually bills out these to the client @ $35+ per inspection for forwarding your work. That works out to about $1400 before they pay you.

The interior inspections should pay a few bucks more, and are usually billed @ $50+ by the Nat. Not all companies are high volume and may only send you a handful every few weeks all over the map and turnaround time is normally 72 hours or less. You will still be expected to carry GL and E&O to cover items you may have missed.

That is about as positive as I can spin that. The reality of that business can be for another thread.

honyocktrapper How is that possible. We met some inspectors working for LPS. They said they were paid $4.00 per house. What do inspections pay? Never done it always done preservation and reo.
