Hello, I’m Paul Lesieur a new member here. I can’t add much knowledge about inspections in general but I am an experienced construction estimator and a HUD 203K consultant and I’d like to share this.
I have met home inspectors who are also 203K consultants and like everything else in the world you meet some people who inspire you and some who should be doing something else. For the 203K you need to inspect and come up with a cost to cure and prices for the buyers desired items. If you have no construction pricing experience you will need to get some but if you do you can do your inspection for lets say $350 and then provide an estimate to rehab and repair for another $200 to $1000. Pricing is contingent on the cost of repairs. On average an inspection will run $350 + $200 (for price estimating) + $150 for Radon for a total of $700.00
I am an experienced 203K consultant and if anyone has interest we can discuss this here or email me. For all I’m learning here I want to be one of the members who gives back.
Now I gotta go figure out how to install my website and contact info.
