I need an inspection and I need it now. There's only one catch.

Desert Sun Inspections is the name I use when answering the phone.

I usually answer the phone "Clint McKie, Desert Sun Inspections"

This was a call I got the other day I didn't recognize the number and I do gets calls from all over the place.

This one was a good one.

Hello, This is Mr. &^%$#, I have a problem I am hoping you can help me with.

I am in need of a commercial inspection and I need it last week.

"Not a problem" I told the caller. "What and where".

He told me it's in Hobbs New Mexico, I know it's a ways from you but there is not a qualified inspector that can handle this request.

You have been suggested by the lender to handle the inspection on this project.

"Which Lender", He told me the lender and I was not surprised. I told him I have worked with the lender on several commercial loans.

He told me "This is not the typical loan".

I asked why. Then he said this loan is $6.5 million dollars.

I told him "O.K. so it's a big project and that means a bunch of progress inspection draws".

They have just started the project, by that I mean they are in the "phase one" of the project".

I told him send me the info and I will get there today and get the first inspection out of the way. This will set up the rest of the inspections for the draws.

He did send the information, I went out and did the inspection talking to the on site supervisor and then the owner of the construction company.

Here is the way the site is when I inspected yesterday.

Foundation going in on site.

Then there is the open areas to be built on.

Open area intended 44,800 SFT building.

This area will house a 44,800 SQFT building.

There is not a lot to report when first getting started. Just the beginnings of a great inspection call.

 

Call Desert Sun Inspections for a "Trust But Verify Inspection".

Commercial or otherwise.

Remember.

Always get a professional certified home inspection.

Hi Jay,

They do. The inspection draws are going to be applied for at the 25Th of each month till done.

It being the 21St when I did the inspection, it leaves little time for a review and then the draw approval.

Have a good day in Bristow.

Hi Patricia,

According to the lenders and their reps. There is not an inspection company in that area that is qualified nor do they even want to do the commercial inspections.

That's O.K. by me. I will drive there and do them.

Have a good day in Flower Mound Texas.

Hi Wayne,

Now that is just not fair(way) at all. LOL

This inspection will only be once a month.

Plenty of time to visit and smack a few balls around.

Have a very good day in Fort Myers my friend.

Hi Adrian,

At first the guy wanted my credentials. Then when I told him who I had been working with in the past, he told me he got my name from them. DUH. Why need credentials then?

Have a very good day in the Seattle area today.

I bet it took a long time to look that one over.  Better to be safe and have you there as the building progresses before there is an issue.

Hi Steven,

Always a good thing to pick up referrals. Even better from the lender that knows you business and what you can do for their customers.

Have a good day in Federal Way, Washington.

Hello Fred,

The time is a factor with this inspection. The request for draws will be the 25th of each month.

So I needed to show what was being done and then calculate the percentages For the draw.

Have a very good day in Land O Lakes my friend.

Hi James.

It took about an hour. It's about 400 Yards from one end the the other.

Ten all the pictures interviews with the superintendent of the job.

Going over the schedule, what's on time and what's not. That kind of stuff.

Have a great day in Rogers. Links done yet?

Hi Conrad,

I can't argue with about 10-12 inspections on this job. Once a month for about a year. That's how long the builder said it will take. Profitable. Yes Very.

Have a great day in Webster.

Hi Larry and Sheila,

I hope so. If I can keep everything on track. Then there should be no delays except from the builder.

Have a good day on Long Island.
