I was contacted today from a company called Safeguard properties that told me they looked over my application (funny, I don't even remember submitting one...probably for BPO work), and were wondering if I would be interested in doing work for them as a field inspector.
I asked what this would entail and was told that essentially it would involve me taking pictures of houses for them, and sometimes handling the winterizing or securing of the home as well.
They have offered a start pay of $6.00 per home. I guess I'm a little spoiled because I am used to quite a bit more pay for typical work, such as BPO assignments. However, if it were only one picture to take and upload, this seems like a fair price.
I'm wondering if anyone has experince with this company, and if so, or if with another, what your thoughts are on field inspection work.
In one regard, I think this would be a nice way to use my real estate license in a different manner, possibly gain some REO work, and add some supplemental income to my pocketbook.
On the flip side, I was told that I could have as many as 10-15 homes on assigment at one time, and I certainly would NOT want this to interfere with my true profession, which is real estate sales.
I'd welcome any input you might have on this topic. Thanks!!
