Home is a new construction and is only about 30 miles traveling distance.

Think of it this way. 10 % of the home price is $650K. If you can afford that, then 1% at $65k is a drop in the bucket. Of course that’s may be unrealistic, but get pricing on farming out electric, plumbing, HVAC etc. Plus contract with a few CMI’s there. Make it a team effort and get there quotes. Add 10 0r 20 % on top.

I wouldn’t attempt without a set like this.

10% is 6.5 mil not 650k

I would quote it like a commercial inspection, because it kind of is - .25 per square foot comes to $7K .35 per square foot comes to 9.8K. So maybe 7.5-10K with the pools?

Don’t tell @rlewis5

Thanks Larry! That’s the most reasonable answer so far.

Correct. That would be $6.5m.

So I would rethink my pricing based on that… :crazy_face:

Thinking the same, but I would still bump it up if I brought in back up. No telling what HVAC alone would cost…

More information would be helpful. Can you post the link of it for sale?

First call your insurance agent and ask them if you’re covered :smiley:

Amen Brother! Should have thought about that first…

Food for thought:

The client that can afford that property can also afford to grind you into the ground over issues or concerns (real or perceived).

Sorry for the edit. I checked the price in my software.

Evening, Ian. Hope this post finds you well.
A multi million dollar estate or manor home I take it.

Likely each of the 9 bedrooms will have a bathroom.
Likely a maids quarters, but it is a 9 bedroom estate nonetheless.

A square footage cost can be calculated but the estate is anything but typical/normal and one should be prepared for this size of real estate property.

1: One might think commercial and have an independent HVAC and electrical contractor present.
2: A helper would also be recommended.
3: An extra camera and spare batteries.

I would start between >< $7,000.00 - $8,000.00 but need to glean the listings to be accurate.
$6,500,000,00 price tag for a manor was the largest estate value I inspected.
I charged $2,100.00 plus $175.00 for the pool applicable taxes.
Relatively easy to inspect mind you. The report was roughly ><10. The inspection, 5 hours.

Anyones insurance liability will be strained by a project like this. Mine liability is $1,000,000 on two occasions annually. I am looking at doubling my liability premium this year.

I would take this inspection on as a commercial inspection and retaining a licensed electrician and HVAC contractor to pick up the slack.
Just my 2 cents.

Hope that helps.
