Gee, thanks Wendy, add to our depressions down here.
All kidding aside, business is not too bad. Thank god for all the commercial sales - they are going strong.
It is definitely a wierd market these days. Of the homes I have done in the past month, all but one of them was vacant. A lot of people are getting out of Dodge because of the high insurance rates (and taxes). My insurance alone went up $1000 this year and is expected to go up a least another $2000 next year if the government (yeah right) doesnt figure out a solution.
Honestly I wasn’t trying to do that. :(I’m sorry if I did. :neutral:I just hate when other articles say business is booming and mislead people into feeling like things are better than they are. It’s better to know the truth and be prepared right?
I hear the plan is to license home inspectors and use the fees collected to reduce insurance premiums, “The Coalition” discovered it was home inspectors who caused that crisis, everything should be fixed at next month’s emergence session.
On a real note, I agree, most homes I inspect today are either vacant or the sellers are moving out of state. This trend has already showed up in some school districts where schools were built based on expected population growth now contain empty classrooms due to expected students that never arrived.
The market in Colorado is still fair. We just need to get rid of some of this snow so we can get to the homes to inspect them. At 1-2 ft. a day its a little ruff to get on roofs. If Nick is at his home in Colorado he will probably be snowed in for a while.
