I find website services to be very much in the category of "you get what you pay for."
I use aprosite.com, $599 annually ($50 a month, reasonable in my mind). I get about 10% of my inspections from surfers. I could get more, probably, but I don't pay extra for the search engine submittals. Might sometime in the future.
I get to do a lot with them. The only complaint I have is that I don't think they read English too well. When I request an update, it sometimes takes five requests to get it done properly. It can get frustrating. The other problem is that they are on the East Coast (three hours time difference) and they don't work on weekends, after hours, or on holidays. Huh? I thought that was the purpose of the Internet, so people could have access 24/7. Weird.
For example, I asked them to put "an extra line of space in front of all the headings." They put a space between every letter in the heading. Huh? What part of that don't you understand? It took me four more emails with demonstrations to get it right. They also refuse to call if they don't understand something. Weird, again.
Home inspections. . . .
One home at a time.
