Thanks for your (2 cents worth) Gerry!
I hear what your saying about the realtors & brokers not looking in the
yellow pages for an inspector. I was thinking though, that when my wife and I have bought and sold houses over the years (before I was an H.I. myself), we always seemed to just go to the Yellow Pages to find an inspector when we needed one. Friends of ours have said they did the same when they sold or bought. Maybe there is such a “low” amount of business from people who do that, it’s not going to be worth it?
Leaves me curious as to whether or not to pay out the money. My wife (& right~arm) Erin, is my marketing pro. She has been working with a Rep. on pricing for a yellow page ad. She's got them down from hundreds per month to around $70 a month right now on a full color, credit card size Ad. Not sure if I want to give the go-ahead on it or not? I've got until the end of the month to decide. ![icon_confused.gif](upload://qv5zppiN69qCk2Y6JzaFYhrff8S.gif)
I really appreciated your input and I will check out the "previous" message board discussions on this subject that you suggested. Erin also has Chris Morrell in the beginning stages of creating a Website for me. I'll pursue that a bit more than I was going to.
