I make IR work for me and I live in one of least populated areas in the State Of Oklahoma. I have no neighbors I live in the country because I don’t play well with neighbors.
I have stated this before but not many listen most try to separate IR from a home inspection and that is great if one lives in highly populated areas but from the git go I have included IR into a home inspection and perfected the outcome to increase my business and increase the price of my inspections to where I stay busy in these down turned housing markets and enjoy the income that follows.
It takes investment money, time, consistency, dedication, proper IR education and a medium priced IR camera to bring together what I have accomplished. I am 5 years into IR and am now harvesting my investment. I have never whined about how bad business is or complained about low ball prices I just find a way to overcome the negative in this business.
Example; I just received a call from a housing director wanting me to inspect 10 of his managed homes to start with and more to follow simply because a friend of his that I did a inspection for showed him my report with the IR images embedded in the report.
Did I grant a price break for the number of homes to inspect no I Increased the price by $100.00 over my standard price :shock::shock: and my proposal was excepted.
