A successful HI once told me a HI needed 100k population to survive in their business. That would mean no more than 188 HI’s in all of Florida, so I somehow struggle with their ratio. Regardless, it does not take much to determine 1 in 11,000 will not promote a HI business either. Sort of like opening a McDonalds on an island of 20 people with no bridge.
FL population 18.8 mil
of Inachi members: 1700
ratio: 1 in 11,000
Add ASHI/FABI/others or no association and obviously the ratio goes down further. To what, I do not know but using 5700 HI’s/18.89 mil population yields:
1 HI for every 3300 people in FL/2.4 heads per household, yields:
1 HI for every 1,375 households/40% ownership ratio, yields:
1 Hi for every 550 potential candidates for a HI
Assuming 3 home purchases in a 40 yr span, (550x3)/40 yrs, yields:
41 home inspections per year, per HI in florida
How much are you gonna charge for a home inspection:
to gross $50k/yr, $1,220 per home
at $200/home, any size by the way, you get to gross $8,200 year and qualify for every Obama giftcard provided by the Feds.
thanks for posting these numbers, Nick.
