Robert N. if the licensing issue goes thru for Ga., we are going to be over run by new inspectors charging $149, and they will get most of the realtor refferals. The only way savvy consumers will be able to recognize your experience will be your prices. There will be fewer inspections to go around, so in order to survive, we will need to get more per inspection. Someone will jumpin in a minute and warn me about price fixing. Well I plead guilty, we need to fix this problem! I’m tired of the $250 mentality here in Atlanta, I’m tired of Realtor’s determining what I can make just so they can look good to their clients! Why are we the only professionals around who work for bargain basement prices? HE!! it cost 10 times as much to install Septic tank as it does for an inspection here! Pardon the pun, but that is pretty $hitty if you ask me. Yes we have a serious problem with pricing and it needs to be fixed. I wish all inspectors made about 2%. Some say we have to compete, true but Realtor’s do also and they still get 6%. They compete with service, because they have already fixed their pricing problem. Forgive my ranting this morning, I’m tired of working so hard for so little!
