Too bad there isn't a phone number. Those are the type of ads I insist on calling and playing dumb to. Makes for good fun for me and the fellas.

The national companies probably get like 8 or 9 for an inspection so if they pay 4 or 5 it is a fair price.

Would it still be a fair price if they were actually getting $30 per house? I'm sorry you think that's fair but when running a business $4 is a loss.

Que pasa mi amigo de joto. $4 es no Bueno para mi. Can you even buy a burrito for $4 these days? I accept no less than $25 for an inspection. One must factor in the total cost to do business. Even if they give you 2000 inspections which would equal $8000. Sounds good right? Add up fuel, maintenance on the vehicle, insurance, e&o, GL, cell service. Internet. Paper. Office work etc. You might actually profit about $600 in the end if you're lucky. How much is your time worth?

Well if you can get a burrito at Taco Bell for 99¢ maybe they should have inspections for 99¢. What do you all think?

Craiglist is the place where I would go to get amused. We were found there by one of the companies we work for. It was long time ago and since that time I didn't see any legitimate posts there. Only scammers, such Berghorst and AMS. Once we saw post supposedly by SG sub who was looking for the sub for REO where I don't think SG had many REO in the area to begin with. CL is a big place for big scammers. Wonder if someone seriously works for AMS. I know berghorst lost BOA (good for BOA).

Don't get me started about Berghorst.

I don't know why Berghorst gets a bad rap on here. I've only had good experiences with them. And they did not lose their Bac contract.

I posted before but I am not going into depths again, well, may be they were offering to pay 65% from what HUD is paying??????
:no::rolleyes:
Off topic:
We had an approval from BOA to install water heater and re-wire basement for not kidding 720.00 including labor and materials, it also had approval to seal basement for somewhat decent. It wasn't pure BOA approval, but rather ins approval. Well, we said we really don't have electricians who runs for free and water heaters rose in cost in last 10 years. Well, we go to this house after a while and someone sprayed the whole basement with kilz, when I say whole - I mean whole thing, including dehumidifier and floor and some furnace parts for some reason where we could see foot prints of the guys who sprayed on the floor. Wonder whose style is that, hmmm, we had seen it a lot. Well, water heater wasn't installed , but it was there, standing on the floor, but basement was rewired. I want this electrician, I DO. Pls share his contact with me we do a lot of wiring, he will become reach. My guys robbing me for 65.00 per hour:wallbash:
