I’m a student status InterNACHI member. I’m just learnin the ropes. I just got ‘ahold’ of a report by one of the busier inspectors in our little area. His wife says he does 3 reports a day 6 days a week. Some are commercial, pest, & radon, but that seems like alot to get done weekly.
He charged $230.00 for a “Home Gauge” report using 3-columns, a few pictures of problems only,----a little hard to read through, and only19 printed pages. shock:
He charged $50.00 for pest–a one page,-- blanks-to-check inspection report.
What do you think about the pricing? He’s a NAHI guy probably the go-to-guy in our area for at least one up and coming real estate group here in Erie PA.
I’ve done residential remodeling in this area for 20 years, (Lima OH for 18 years before that) and I didn’t worry much about being the lowest bid, if people wanted me to do work for them it was because of word-of-mouth-personal recommendations. In this new endeavor I think I’ve got to take into consideration a going rate that this inspector seems to be able to consistantly generate. Any thoughts???
