I have said before that Allens pay per inspection program is not worth it and it was a mistake using it. Now that tax time is here, I was forced to realize the value of my mistake. Its not as bad as I thought.
It was $140 dollars more of an expense to start with Allens program and then switch to inspector pro. I calculated the fact that I only had inspector pro for 7 months this year to get that number.
The cash flow out for the year was $900 more by doing it this way. Its not an incredible amount but for a new business its more than I wanted.
If I had stayed with Allen the whole year it would have been about $800 more compared to a year with inspector pro.
The only way it can be beneficial is if you do less than about 45 inspections your first year. However, that doesn’t take into account the inconvenience of having to mail in a piece of paper after every inspection.
I would not use it again. HUGE mistake on my part and I wish someone could have warned me.
