Election Night (Nov 8) Inspector Outlet Auction: GIGANTIC CMI Total Package.

Due to popularity, we’re doin’ it again only we’ve made the package even bigger!

This week’s (November 8, 2016) Inspector Outlet Tuesday Night Auction item is a package being provided by the Master Inspector Certification Board. The package includes:

Non-InterNACHI members are welcome to bid as the Certified Master Inspector professional designation is open to all home inspectors. If you don’t yet qualify, we will save everything for you until you do. So you can bid even if you aren’t ready to be a CMI.

Rules:

  • You must qualify to be a Certified Master Inspector (CMI). That means you have to have 1,000 home inspections and/or continuing education hours (combined) and have been in the inspection business for at least 3 years. You’ll be asked for some documented evidence that you have been in business at least 3 years. To do that you’ll be asked to provide ANY ONE of the following:
  • a copy of your government-issued inspector’s license demonstrating that you were an inspector as of three or more years ago;
  • a copy of your business license demonstrating that you were an inspector as of three or more years ago;
  • evidence that demonstrates that you were a member of an inspection association as of three or more years ago;
  • a copy of the first page of your inspection business federal tax return from three or more years ago;
  • a copy of a DBA document demonstrating that you were an inspector as of three or more years ago;
  • or three signed letters from business associates or past clients stating that you were an inspector as of three or more years ago.
  • We only need ONE of the aforementioned documents (we’ll contact you to get it).

If you don’t yet qualify, we will save everything for you until you do. So you can bid even if you aren’t ready to be a CMI.

If you aren’t already a member of InterNACHI, your first year will be free.

If you are a member of InterNACHI, your next year will be free.

Auction starts now and ends at 9PM MST on Tuesday night, November 8, 2016.

Winner will be the post with the highest bid made prior to 9PM MST.

You can bid as many times as you’d like, as long as your new bid is higher than the previous bid.

You guys all realize that the auction doesn’t end for 6 days, right? Bidding the price up this early in larger amounts will only cause the end price to be higher. One only need look at all the other CMI auctions that have been held to see early bidding adds almost $1000 to the end price. :roll:

Ok then, $550. I like the flashlight.

Furthermore, putting the value of CMI aside for a moment, if the $1,000 bid wins on Tuesday night… how much would the winning bidder actually be paying for a professional designation that, as I’ve shown from several angles, will increase his gross revenue by a million dollars?

Let’s do the math to figure it out:

  • Let’s say the winning bidder on Tuesday pays $1,000 for the entire package.
  • Subtract from that the value of the shirts, hats, patches, decals, books, and shipping that come with the package and the winning bidder is only paying about $950 for his/her CMI.
  • Subtract from that the value of the 500 CMI rack cards and the winning bidder is only paying $800 for his/her CMI.
  • Subtract from that the value of the Fenix Flashlight and the winning bidder is only paying $705 for his/her CMI.
  • Subtract from that the value of the case of “Now That You’ve Had a Home Inspection” books and the winning bidder is only paying $582 for his/her CMI.
  • Subtract from that the value of the free year of InterNACHI membership and the winning bidder is only paying $83 for his/her CMI.
  • Subtract from that the value of the 3 microwave oven detectors and the winning bidder is only paying $73 for his/her CMI.
  • Subtract from that the value of the CMI water bottle and the winning bidder is only paying $66 for his/her CMI.
  • Subtract from that the value of the FLIR ONE infrared camera and the winning bidder isn’t paying anything for his/her CMI. The winning bidder is being paid $204 to get his/her CMI for free.

Basically, any bid equal or less than $1,204 results in the winning bidder getting CMI for free.
