I used to do inspections for LPS @ $7 a pop... then they got into the RFP thing. Had been doing them before they were LPS, when the Insul's owned Universal (since 1995). We bid $6.50 per inspection... didn;t make the cut. The guy that got called us and asked if we wanted to do $3 inspections... told him thank you but..No,

You can make $$$ doing them... urban areas you should be able to get 10-15 per hour... Suburban a litte less... Rural... it's tough.

How can you do anything for $7??? You can stay home and watch TV and not lose time or $. If you want to double your income try the alphabet company for $15/inspection.

Are you honestly that dense or are you just talking out of your ass?

When you do 2/k-3/k per month it adds up. I wouldn't do'em if they were a loser. In urban area's you (CT City's) can do 12-15 per hour... all in all not a bad days' pay for driving around suggesting to people that they should call their mortgage company.

We did them when the companies required one or two pics. My understanding is that companies like Safeguard, Five Brothers, etc, are now requiring up to 6 pics for standard drive by jobs, 20 or more for vacant units, plus photos of volt sticks to determine utility. No one I have heard of is increasing their pricing for this.

It typical in this industry...more...more..more, but when you raise your price they lower your volume. I started when you did Poliroids... stapled 1 pic to the inspection form and mailed them in.
Digital technology...ya gotta love it.
