Im trying to schedule an inspection but the home owner cant give me access during the week until after 5:00 because of them working from home(COVID). I explain to the client that the weekend rate is $125 extra and refuses to pay because we feel the homeowner is being unreasonable. So…now the realtor has asked if I get access to the home at 4:00, do the exterior and then enter the house at 5:00 if that would work. To me that still puts me working after hours and has turned into a dog and pony show. What should I charge for working after 5:00?
At this point ive wasted so much time that im loosing money and would rather not even do it, of course I will though. Im sure there are other inspectors in my area that dont hold up to a set time or after hour rate. If I dont stand for something I’ll fall for anything and will probably loose business because of this due to my business mainly coming from realtors.
