Hello all! I am a draw inspector in the Dallas/Ft Worth area and looking to connector with other high volume draw inspectors anywhere in the US. This is not for phase or regular home inspections, strictly draw / bank inspections.
I am a full time draw inspector…haven’t done a regular home inspection since somewhere around '11.
I don’t meet your requirements but that never stopped me before. Why don’t you share your procedure and some success (must be successful if you don’t do HI anymore).stories. How you got banks interested and how you meet their needs (what makes them call you back?).
Hey Robert. I guess the best advice I can give, aside from knowing construction practices, is to make the bank love your work. Quick, professional looking reports/intelligible comments, and never stop learning about construction costs will go a long way. The lending industry is a small world sometimes and you would be surprised who knows who. It can be difficult to gain new business. Don’t be afraid to offer a freebie, just so they can see that you know what you are actually doing. If you are working with anyone, ask if they know of other lenders that may need this service. Don’t forget about hard money lenders as well. There are a few national companies as well, Built, Trinity, Granite, Land Gorilla, Nationwide…
That is a great way to start. Ask to speak mortgage risk dept (could be called a number of things) or even a mortgage loan officer. They should be able to direct you to the right person. The other option is searching for regional/national inspection companies.
