From your website:
Our Ottawa area home inspection prices are between $250.00 and $350.00plus Tax
**for a max. 3000 Sq. ft. home ****
“Sorry that you think that $100,000 per year is pie in the sky. This year I am on track to do $120,000 plus I will give another $10,000 to $20,000 worth of business to other InterNACHI inspectors in the Ottawa area”
Firstly, $120,000 gross revenue is not income!!
Secondly, if your prices are that low, you must be real busy doing 2-3 inspections a day to get to that gross revenue. 2 inspections per day are all I can handle and that makes for a 10-13 hour day for myself due to the quality of my service.
You must be doing drive-by’s/walk-throughs to get that much revenue in a year.
Thirdly, obviously you don’t know what the HI field can offer you in variety; it shows you’ve only been in the field for a few years. you ridicule my claim about working in a divorce case. That was a very good paying inspection as it was done in preparing for a court case between parties in a divorce. It was about 1987-8 and and I was able to charge $100/hour.
I was called in to inspect the home that the husband built. He was trying to lowball the price he was going to pay the wife as he was buying her out. He claimed he had built in many defects so that the house was not worth what she was asking for for her half. Well, it was an easy inspection and on the court date, I sat outside court waiting for 3 hours ($300) reading!! When I thought I was going to be called, I was told I was no further needed…the parties had settled because my report showed the folly of the husband…stupid man…what man would knowingly build defects into his home and then try to claim he did!! easy slam dunk!!
