The $179 QuickInspect

By
Home Inspector with BeSure Home Inspection Service

 With today economy and fast pace Real Estate market. I thought I would add a new type of inspection to my business to better serve you and your clients. Thanks for taking the time to look at my post, and may you have many happy sales and inspections.

The $179 QuickInspect is an affordable option for investors, as well as anyone on a budget.  As we all know, Time is Money!  So, if we can save time, we can save you money.  The savings comes in by us not having to spend hours creating a detailed, written inspection report, as this is a verbal walk-through (with you or your representative) of the home.

Basically, we look at the major systems of the house - structure, plumbing, electrical and HVAC - and inform you (or your representative) on the spot.  You take notes (written, photos, video &/or audio!) of what we tell you, and that is your list of concerns for that property.

Interesting concept. What does your contract state and what if you get into a he said, she said situation? I have thought of something like this myself...

Helping you live your American dream...

Hey, Michael - I've been offering this type of service for investors since April 1, 2003. Investors love it. I call it my WALK inspection.

Great idea....and I would take it one marketing step further and offer it as a "pre-inspection" to sellers who want to be sure there are no major surprises when the buyer sends their inspector to the property.

When we do a large multi family building (over 25 units) for government, commercial and colleges we do a quickie inspection - we call it a MEPIR inspection (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, infrared) and three of us can knock out each unit in about 8 minutes, only commenting on the major things. It's been working out for govt. work - maybe we should look into a modified MEPIR type inspection on residences. If you had the homes lined up geographically, you could probably knock out one an hour, the price would be greatly reduced and could be a win=win for everyone. Never thought about doing this for individual homes. Good idea there Mark!

Even the big stores have price/loss leaders. Why not? Good idea

This would be a great idea for home sellers.  They never want to spend money on a full inspection... but it would be great for them to know what to start fixing before it sells.

Michael,

   Thanks for the comments and concerns. I have it in my in my contact what is covered and what is not. It also states that I am recording the conversation for future reference. I also invite them to bring a recorder themselves along with either a camera or video camera to record my findings on the items that I am inspecting.

To the rest of you, thanks for your comments, and thanks for thinking outside of the box. We all need to step up and make some changes in these crazy times. Thanks again and may you all have a great day with many happy sales and inspections.
