I've given myself 3 days for the job: 2 to inspect, one to finish the report. The first inspector I asked (2000 inspection's worth of experience) said he'd charge just under a grand for the whole gig. The second inspector (500-750 inspections worth of experience), said he always charges $250/unit, even on a 12-plex he did recently. Said the buyer didn't batt an eye. The realtor said he'd expect between $1500 and $2000. He was NOT the referring realtor.
Base prices around this area are $325-$400 for a regular HI. These particular units are 2/1, 1980s construction, 2 story total height, no crawl space. I'd LIKE to get the job, but have consistent work and would end up doing SFRs for the three days anyway. Any voices of experience would be much appreciated.
PS... My thoughts are with you, Florida!
