Field Inspector Comments On Commercial vs. Mortgage Inspections
“Did 1 commercial inspection today.
Total drive time to and from site: About 75 minutes w/rush hour traffic (sadly). Total time spent on the site: About an hour. Total time spent putting the photos and report together to upload: About an hour.
Pay for this inspection: $225 for a little over 3 hours of easy, relax-paced work. Equivalency for mortgage inspections: I had $5 per, so 45 would be needed which would take 6-8 hours of consistent driving & filling out along the way to get. $3 per? 75 which would take 10-12 hours plus to complete in my area.
Added caveat? Turns out part of the building is being renovated into a new craft brewery. I’m going back when they open.
Take it from someone who’s been there: don’t get into mortgage inspections now!”
I checked all of the numbers and they looked great.
