Stopped by my bank to have some more of this confounded licensing paperwork notarized. The lady who usually helps me was busy, and the branch manager wound up helping me. We’d never met before.
We started talking about inspections. He said he had a client he was trying to close on a commercial building. She wants it inspected before she closes... but neither of them can find anyone to do it! And apparently this was the first time he'd run into this.
Thinking fast ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif), I told him I'd check around and see what I could find out. Seems like I read somewhere-- maybe here-- that commercial inspections are few and far between, because many business people who wouldn't even consider buying a home without an inspection will buy a commercial property almost sight unseen. What can y'all tell me about commercial inspections? I don't even know if such a license exists in my state, beyond code inspectors and such. Would a commercial buyer have to hire an expert in every construction field?
At any rate, without any selling on my part, he asked me to be SURE to drop off some business cards and stuff when I get everything rolling. Seemed sincere, at any rate (I hadn't even mentioned that I'm planning to open my business account with his bank).
Any info on those commercial thingys appreciated, to help me make a good impression (not to do 'em myself, but if I could just tell him where to look, might get me on his radar screen... )
