I have and to try and narrow them down is VERY hard. A lot of them are off subject threads and this one is direct and to the point.


But I do thank you for the suggestion.

In all cases you are a sub and they do very little in the way of taking care of thier inspectors. It is very much a dice roll on if you are sent addresses on a consistent basis or if you have days of lapses.


I think that if your business is slow there is good money to be made. But if you are doing 10 inspections a weak in your area you will not come out ahead doing work for any of the companies you named. With gas prices, motel prices and rental car doing 10 at home will leave more money in your pocket in the long run.

Robert got it, also Shoe time to Realtors, Lawyers, and mortgage co, is money in the bank,


The pay rate is from 46.00- 49.00 per inspection, if this is your first time out, you will have a week of training , no money, then if you are a rookie, you may not get more than 6-10 per day, may even have to ride along before you get out on your own,


Also you are going to be dealing with people that have lost everything, amd are not big fans of the government at this time,

Good points. Thank you for your inputs. I have had an offer but different from what I have read about in the MB.


I have been offered a rate of $33.00 an hour with an expectation of 60-80 hours a week and most expenses paid.


This is a new venue for me and so I’m not sure of the validity of it. The only rates I’ve read about have been concerning PaRR at the $44.00 to $49.00 per inspection rate.


I’d like to hear more from folks who have had experiences from IBTS & PB as I’ve gotten several emails from folks who are experienced with PaRR.


Experiences of folks with PaRR of course are still wanted as this thread is to share knowledge for/from all.

Thanks my wife taught me but I’ll be darned if I remember how to do gain. Guess I’ll have to keep her round for awhile. LOL


I have been finding out you can't use a fill in guest book, as porn operators and spammers like to load up on it, so I guess I'll have to delete that part and just use testimonials.

I called IBTS and they said that their has been a problem with their overnight mailings getting out and that I should have received my package SAT..
Their checking on it and will be getting back with me.

I'll keep you posted.

I would like to thank all of you for your inputs. It has been an informative conversation with mostly private emails.


Update about IBTS: They contacted me a little over a month ago and said that with my inspection and prior hurricane recovery experience that I was on the list and that they'd send an info packet. Never received it.

I called them (several times) and was told things are still up in the air and that they were waiting for FEMA to let them know how many inspectors they needed. Again was told I would receive an info packet and/or an email. Never received ether.

I had turned down several jobs as I had expected that with the 24 hour notification that I could'nt do that to my clients and so I wouldn't take jobs that I knew would last more than 3 day's (I also do repairs and maintenance, NOT on my own inspections).

I guess that the bottom line is that if you are told you have been excepted, that you should continue doing what you do and schedule your future work until you know for a fact that what they tell you is the truth and that you will be going (or a VERY, VERY strong chance of it).

Best regards to all and thanks again for the replies and info.

Joe
