I think there are much bigger opportunities and challenges coming in this industry than we are discussing so far.

All,
A fellow home inspector asked me to post this for him

A poll for experienced home inspectors, possibly another ASHI Reporter article .

No names will be used, just the results. I really appreciate your taking a few minutes to answer.

You always ask if all utilities are on when setting up an inspection on a vacant home, But you arrive at an inspection and the utilities are off.


Do you do the inspection:

if the gas is off? Yes or No

If the water is off? Yes or No

If the electricity is off? Yes or No



And do you charge anyone for the re-inspection? Yes Or No Who?


Once again, no names will be used and I will send out the results to everyone on this list. And once again, I appreciate your time to ans

Start a new thread for this one. It's too important to be just a momentary thread drift.

I see home inspectors becoming more of a specialist in each field. I think the standards will grow and the process of getting your license will become much more difficult. Its a good thing we got in when we did, but I see home inspection fees going up in the future and us being required to go into more detail in certain areas. This will increase liability issues with the profession.

1st..got my Flir F8 from Nathan and saved $400 off retail. Great machine.
2nd...I think Standards will become more reciprocal and uniform. Some states only require a business card, some require 50+ supervised inspections before licensing. I also believe with the diversity of inspections becoming more than just a buyers tool that our industry will eventually evolve from under the real estate umbrella. For better or worse...time will tell. Unfortunately I also see the guys doing inspections for $199 becoming more visible, which we all no is truly a disservice to the customer. Those are the guys that make up the difference in volume doing 5-6 inspections a day throwing thoroughness out the door.
Just my humble opinion.

End of June and we had 10 clients that used the $100 discount coupons RWS created for us. Also starting to get more mold inspection since I got set up through Nathans Inspector Lab. Great extra add on sales and pushing even harder. Since these add on sales are working, may as well get into the thermo imaging sales. All other sales tools from RWS has proven prosperous. No brainer

Metro areas, the larger size companies are already squeezing out the single operators. They will always be there, but will be like realtors, 20% doing 80% of the work. Multi inspector firms and the advantages they bring to the consumer but more importantly the realtors who tend to refer them, will continue to gain traction and market share. Its already being done. While the '1 a day' inspectors are booked 8-10 days out, multi firms can get them turned around faster. Otherwise, it's hard to speculate. Look how far technology has come in 10 years. 10 years ago we still had flip phones. Now our phones are more powerful than laptops. Thermal cameras were the size of bricks. Now they're coming as attachments to Iphones (limited resolution, but still progress can be made). There's my post, send me my MR160 when this is over.
