Today is the second day in a row I have received a call for home inspections in which the callers told me the prices he/she has already received.
The house yesterday was a 1700 sq ft built in 1963, said he had quotes from $165.00 to $245.00—:shock:
Call today the house was 2900 sq ft built in 2004, said she had quotes from $169.00 including the termite inspection to $255.00 without the termite inspection included.
Both wanted to know if I could beat the price, and if so, can I do it tomorrow.
I told both of them no, I cannot beat those prices by stretch of the imagination.
Naturally they both said thanks, we will call around some more----:lol:
It’s a shame, but I think there are many many companies here ready to close their doors. I have never heard of quotes this low EVER!
The rest of you guys in other states getting calls like this?
It is really too bad the companies still in business are prostituting themselves too this degree, simply pathetic. I guess it’s a last ditch method before more companies shut their doors.
I wonder when the used house salesman will be dropping their bizarre commission rate?..probably never, because at least they have the entire nation basically at the same rate, so there is not a need too.
Something certainly needs to be done for the remainder of the home inspection companies too charge what their worth, we need too figure out exactly what that might be, without being accused of price fixing—:roll:
One more reason to do commercial inspections I guess, never hear madness like this!
