t have to do the math to know what it might cost me..I thats not even a guarentee theyll even use me…talkin to realtors (honest ones) they said they have their favorite companies & told their favorite ones not to even join because they will use them anyhow …this reminds me of something like protection money the mob use to do & ask for so you could stay in business…& even if I pay for a few…theres no guarentee I will be used…
any other inspectors feeling this Squeeze play yet!!!
