What does everyone do for these? Do you basically do a full inspection, or a shortened version and charge less?
We are just starting to market this and are having a great response. We have been asked to do a large volume of pre-listing inspections for a real estate company. We are supposed to be part of a package deal with anyone listing their homes and the broker is only charging the client $150 for our service because the he only wants a quickie 1 page not detailed check sheet pre-listing inspection and summary, that will maybe take us one-hour to complete. How do we cover our butts and feel we have done it justice without spending too much time and energy for the fee of $150? Our average regular inspection is $300-$350 plus ancillary stuff and takes 2 1/2-3 hours. We expect to get a lot of regular inspection business from this, but are a bit hesitant about our obligations and what agreement to have signed. Any suggestions would be helpful!
