Hey everyone, Not only am I newly getting back into home inspection, but waking up to a market with no to low inventory. Buyers are skipping inspections and if they do have one, they’re waiving contingencies. Some are still not getting their offers accepted and are paying for multiple inspections. I’m sure you all know all the ins and outs of a market like this…bidding wars etc.
Found a 2 year old article on the subject of offering a “Pre Inspection Verbal Consultation” in these situations. (I see one inspector that serves my same territory lists something similar on his services page. He also does arbitration and such.) The home inspector writing the article doesn’t offer them, and presented his side well. But ended the post basically stating what a rock and a hard place we’re in with offering/not offering some form of abbreviated service. He was thorough in noting many insurance policies won’t cover a non-report inspection.
Just would appreciate all of your thoughts, experiences and ideas on my Post Title. Thanks.
