Home inspectors have always complained that the REALTORs hold all the cards, that they won’t tell you who the potential clients (typically homebuyers) are, and that you have to kiss their as$ for referrals. This was because homebuyers remained anonymous. Well times have changed and it is now a home inspector’s market out there.
Your potential clients these days (sellers) are far from anonymous. They are desperate to sell. They will listen to any suggestion that they think might work, like doing a seller’s inspection.
ALL THE PLANETS ARE ALIGNED FOR YOU TO GET RICH DOING INSPECTIONS!

The REALTORs can’t hide their clients or stop you from contacting them direct. In fact, they want you to help sell their listings. You have their support.
Your potential clients are desperate to sell. The inventory is just sitting there. Just offer a seller’s inspection to them and explain to them why they should do it, they’ll do it.
Each seller is moving and eventually will need what? A home inspector! You’re going to get another inspection out of it.
Your potential clients are telling you who they are. They even put big FOR SALE signs in their yards!
Too shy to knock on their door? No problem. These potential clients have made it really easy for you. They put their listing agent’s name on a big FOR SALE sign in their front yard. Wait, it gets better… they even put their listing agent’s phone number on the sign! Wait, it gets better… they put their own mailing address right on their mail box for you.
It’s inspector heaven out there. Attack.
