A couple of point to consider:
I redo wind mits on the new form that I did a year ago on the old form.
I have many repeat clients. People change insurance more often they one may think.
You can only save 45% on the Wind portion of the premium.
All insurance companies are required to inform their clients about wind mitigation. They just need to read the information sent them. They state even had newspaper adds and commercial.
Many insurance companies use wind mitigation to gain clients and keep old clients.
There is less liability with a wind mit(if done properly) than a home inspection.
Prices will never go up as long as people are willing to do them for less.
We have a GC doing wind mits and four point combos for 87.50. I have heard of people doing wind mits alone for $50 dollars and $35 dollars.
Claiming that benefits vs pay (saving vs cost) is a way to charge is non sense. You should get paid for time/services done. I do not charge more because they paid more for the house. What they spend or save is not my business.
I have proven many previous inspections wrong, including re-inspections. It is about having the proper proof.
Managing wind mits is not easy, everyone needs them now. Checking all inspectors work is time consuming and necessary.
There are tricks to the Insurance inspection business, first being volume. Making good money at it is a matter of perspective. To the person not working, doing a couple a day a $50 is good money. To the seasoned inspector not so much.
