    You are always hiring because, U.S. Inspect is a revolving door entertainment center for amateur inspectors, wholly funded by the unsophisticated general public.

    Neal,

    No, too much of a stick in the mud, gotta do it my way person.

    Faith is a friend from Louisville, Kentucky.

    We were in the (Kentucky Real Estate Inspectors Association) together way back when.

    A.D.

    US Inspect may not be your cup of tea, but quite a few people do like it. Just like those who work for other multi-inspector firms.

    Especially those who like the inspecting part but not the marketing part. I know several of them. They're far from amateurs. They just don't like the marketing part. They want to just inspect and quite a few of them do it VERY well.

    Fortunately, there's room for a lot of different ways in our world, even yours and mine.

    EC: My opinion of them is formed solely upon what I have experienced of them in my area. Short, poorly written reports apparently provided by the under-educated solely for the edification of the franchisor's bank account.

    Fortunately, there's room for a lot of different ways in our world,
    EC: Yes, the sheep need shepherds and the self-deprecating require abuse. So then, US Inspect fills a need. I get that. What I would prefer to see however, is that the bar be raised universally. A rising tide lifts all the boats.

    Wow! Imagine my surprise to come back to the thread I posted on this board. I know that most of us try to keep this a very professional forum, and I believe my posting is very good news in today's market and economy...that a company is actually hiring. Fortunately for us, we began hiring again three months ago in several areas, and I received over 200 resumes from licensed inspectors. One of our areas was actually in Texas where we are experiencing our biggest growth and getting ready to add another inspector to that team. That's really great news for our entire industry - that we would have the capacity to hire new employee inspectors in many of our markets. This board has been very helpful as we have received many professional inquiries from inspectors who visit here. I thank you all for your interest.

    There are many comments here that are truly unfounded and certainly not necessary. We are not a franchise as many tend to believe and hardly a revolving door. Currently, we employ 225 people and have a very high employee retention rate. Is any company going to have 100% employee satisfaction? Of course not. Is any company going to have employees that they are not satisfied with? Of course. You can be certain that we wouldn't use a forum such as this to bash a former employee or a competitor.

    Our model, of course, is not for everyone, as Erby mentioned. However, what I found in personally speaking with 200 applicants during the last quarter of 2009 was that many didn't like owning their own operation for one reason or another. I'm in that category having owned a successful multi-inspector home inspection company for 15 years before coming on board with U.S. Inspect in 2003. It was one of the best professional decisions I ever made and I haven't regretted a single day. It's a great place to work with great people. I have more of a personal testimony in regards to US Inspect that frankly can't be disputed.

    The invitation stands. We are hiring professional inspectors in several areas. I invite those who would like to discuss employment with a great company to call me at 703.293.1445 or email me at fgreenwell@usinspect.com.

    Erby, thanks for your support and professionalism. You shine brightly here! I wish each and every one of you a prosperous 2010.

    Regards,
    Faith Greenwell

    That's pretty funny. Unlike independent inspectors, those who work for national companies generally are required to participate in continuing eduction, required to have criminal background checks, required to maintain certifications and licensing and generally have better liability, and E&O insurance. The also provide better customer support for scheduling and after care.

    Just because we work for national companies doesn't mean we're inexperienced. My 3 in Minnesota have 10,000 home inspections between them. The lowest with 2,000. Two of them also have 1,000 inspection in Arizona. I'm in the process of hiring two more. One with 6,000 and the other with 1,000.

    It's the independant inspectors which the public needs to watch out for. The felons. Those with no insurance. Those ASHI candidates and Nachi certified inspectors with less that 200 inspections under their belts who seem to be all over the place.

    There is a big difference in what we're referring to. You are commenting on yourself. I am commenting on the 300 inspectors employed by BPG. If you were to take a random sampling of 300 independent inspectors would 100% meet the same requirements as you? Because I can say in all certainty that all 300 of our inspectors do.

    Who answers your phone when you're on an inspection. We have office staff so calls never go to voice mail. Do you have online inspection ordering? We do. Do you have a 90 warranty on all inspections? We do, no extra charge. Do you have a Satisfaction Guarantee? We do. If for any reason the client is not completely satisfied with our performance we'll refund their inspection fee. Do you have $2 million in errors and omissions insurance? We do. Do you provide a year follow up advise both via phone and internet? We do. Remember, you're talking about 1 independent inspector, yourself. I'm talking about 300 BPG inspectors.

    Multi-inspector firms are parasites. Successful parasites do not kill us, as they merely become a part of us, making us perform all the work to keep them alive and help them reproduce. They are the ones to be avoided at all costs.
    It looks like we're talking about different things here also. You're talking about multi-inspector firms, while I'm talking about nationwide inspection companies. A national inspection company will provide better service to the client. Isn't that what it's all about?

    Couple years ago I inspected an 80+/- year old house north of Philadelphia. They had given my client a copy of a report from a national U.S. Inspect-type company. I think the report was about a year old.

    The previous inspector noted that the roof was observed from the ground, with binoculars. Said it was asphalt shingles, about 12 years old, and in good condition.

    Here's what the roof looked like from my ladder at the gutter:

    Personally, I have seen good and bad solo inspectors. Prior to the cleansing period that we have been in for the past couple of years, I would say that the bad outweighed the good.

    I have several friends who have multi-inspector firms (more than 1 inspector) and I also have a good friend (Keith Rhule) who has been with US Inspect for about 8-10 years and absolutely loves it. I see nothing wrong with the large nationwide firms, they also have the good and the bad.

    It is all about the individual inspector and how they do their job.

    And we all know a roof will be in the same condition a year after the inspection. Was the first inspection done when the roof was covered with snow? Did the previous owner refuse the let the inspector put a ladder against the roof? You "think" the report was a year old. Could it have been two years old? Could it have been 5 years old? There are too many variables in your statement to make it worth anything.

    I've been on at least 200 inspections where the previous "independent" inspector has lied on their report. Claimed to have inspected the attic, but the original seal was never broken.

    Again, you're not talking about the same thing as I. I'm not comparing BGP's inspectors to you. I'm comparing them to a random sampling of 300 independent inspectors. When a client calls us they will always get an inspector who exceeds the state requirements. Is this true if a client calls every independent home inspection business? No.

    KR: I have contracted someone to do this when required. Most of the time I field all calls myself. Why? Because a receptionist is not an inspector and not qualified to answer technical questions.
    So you take the calls when your meeting with clients or do you let it roll to voice mail and hope they don't schedule with someone else before you can call them back? My office takes the call during business hours, after hours I goes to my cell. We have inspectors in our office to answer technical questions. If the clients need to speak with me directly the office will forward the call to me.

    KR: Yes, and I had a website before you did.
    Really? We've had our national site for somewhere around 12 years. Buyers Protection Group / Minnesota Home Inspectors is only a local site I recently made.

    No, because only an idiot would offer an actual warranty on an inspection service. Now, if you are talking about a limited warranty, then yes.
    Yes, a limited warranty.

    No, mine are quarterly.
    So ours is better.

    Now take everything that we've compare with you personally and apply that to 300 independent home inspectors. Can you tell me in all honesty that you believe all 300 will meet or exceed those specifications?


    That is complete BS, and you know it.
    I know that if I were a regular Joe Homeowner I would trust a national company before some guy with an Inachi certification working out of his basement.

    One last customer support question...If for some reason you were no longer around, who would provide support for your clients. BPG would take care of mine.

    Two totally different business models. I would agree if it were an independent model. But, if we have an injured inspector, or business is slow and we can use them as a tech expert in the office it keeps the income going for the inspector and the worker comp claim to a minimum.

    Nothing you have is better.
    Better than you or better than any 300 independent inspectors?

    Yes. We have many. My lowest paid inspector in MN made around $30,000. But he only did inspections and it amounted to about 10 hours of work per week, including drive time. No marketing whatsoever. Just took what he was given. The highest paid inspector in the company probably made around $180,000 but that's only a guestimate looking at the number of inspections he did. They still have to give Uncle Sam his share but that's what they were paid.

    In general our basic Home Inspector can make 60% of the inspection fees with commissions and bonuses. It can go higher for additional certifications and even higher for PE's. But they have to be willing to work at it.

    All operating costs are paid by the company, except vehicle and gas and basic inspections tools. Marketing materials, business cards, computers, software, continuing education, association fees, professional dues, specialized equipment (like radon monitors etc), liability, E&O, and workers comp. If you do your research you'll find that an independent inspector operating as a legitimate, legal business will have expenses in the 45 to 55% range.

    National campaigns like our current Winter Promtion (Free radon test or $100 off) do not effect what the inspector makes. They still get paid as if the client paid the full fee.

    In general our basic Home Inspector can make 60% of the inspection fees with commissions and bonuses. It can go higher for additional certifications and even higher for PE's. But they have to be willing to work at it.

    National campaigns like our current Winter Promtion (Free radon test or $100 off) do not effect what the inspector makes. They still get paid as if the client paid the full fee.

    That isn't the way we work at all. I see my guys about once every two months, but generally talk to them weekly. They run themselves as if they were running their own business. I'm only here to help them. If they're happy working 10 hours a week for 30 grand a year that's up to them. I'm generally here to do marketing, remind them to fill out their availability (if they want to work). Make sure they meet the company requirements for CE and Certifications, wading through resumes and updating my inspectors on software and building requirements.

    It is all about the individual inspector and how they do their job.

    It's not asphalt shingle. Whatever it is, it was breaking up all over the place. I sure didn't walk on it. It would have sent busted shingles raining down below.
    I remember shortly after examining the roof, the client told me the seller was refusing to help out in any way and he, the client, has zero money to put into this place. Needless to say the deal fell apart.

    Ken

    I hate to get into this but I must. Am I doubting your figuring...maybe so.

    You are talking that one inspector earned 180,000 per year. You are saying that before anything else he did 12 inspections a weak for the entire 52 weeks and pulled 300 off the top of each inspection and then you paid benefits and E+O and the company made a profit off of him.

    Again....that is 2 inspections a day for 6 days a week and he pulls 300 off the top plus, plus and you company makes a handsome profit on top of that.

    I hate to say this to anyone but seriously. If you can show me the real numbers with out any fixes in there, you don't have to give me his name, and it adds up to what you say I will be in tomorrow for a job.

    Now these figures have to be in the 180 range, plus his benefits plus the profit on top.

    If he can pull off anywhere near that by hustling out there why on Gods green earth would he be working for another company. If he he dropped what he gets from the company and did all that marketing and hustling to bring the company in that money. Why is he working for your company.

    I guess I could be getting older and a little thicker but you just said the other 30,000 dollar guy just takes what is given him. That means the other guy is pulling in 150,000 over that, give or take by hustling with marketing pulling that 150,000 on his own which means if the company was not getting their cut he would be pulling 180000 by himself with out the need for the company.

    I am not pulling anyones leg here. I know you are looking at resumes but I look at a companies first. Prove yourself to me and I will prove myself to you. I know what I have done all my life and I have no need to prove it to anyone as an independent. Forget about what else I ever did before coming to Texas. Lets just take 5 plus years as a home inspector in Texas with licensing, schooling and paying my ridiculous amount of bills that accrued getting started here. That is in itself is my resume with out anyone pulling an income in to counter what I do.

    Show me yours and I'll show you mine and sign up tomorrow. If your marketing plan is that good, I'm coming.

    Ted,

    One of our guys in St Louis did around 500 inspections last year and averaged around $600 per inspection. That includes not only the inspection price but any extras he's certified in such as mold testing, radon testing etc.

    He may not even be the the highest paid in the company, as I'm not privy to information out of our region. We have PE's who work less and make more.

    If he can pull off anywhere near that by hustling out there why on Gods green earth would he be working for another company. If he he dropped what he gets from the company and did all that marketing and hustling to bring the company in that money. Why is he working for your company.
    I'm not sure but I can tell you why I do it. I get to make my own schedule, I get full benefits for my family, I don't have any of the expenses associated with running my own business, I don't have to schedule the inspections myself, I get to deduct anything I'm not provided or reimbursed for since I work out of my house and my company is out of state, if I do the inspection I still get paid even if the check bounces or the clients claim a "satisfaction guarantee", complaints are handled by our operations manager so we very seldom have to deal with them. And the biggest of all...all the liability is taken on by the company. I don't have to worry about lawsuits. Plus the company provides a better overall service than the typical independent could ever dream of.

    I guess I could be getting older and a little thicker but you just said the other 30,000 dollar guy just takes what is given him. That means the other guy is pulling in 150,000 over that, give or take by hustling with marketing pulling that 150,000 on his own which means if the company was not getting their cut he would be pulling 180000 by himself with out the need for the company.
    Not necessarily. Most of our clients are are here for the company, because we can provide a suprerior product, not the individual inspector. I terminated a 350 job/year inspector in 2008. He went on his own. We retained every one the agents who previously referred him and increased our year over year numbers even being short one inspector.

    If the Missouri inspector went on his own and was able to retain 50% of his clients that would put his gross at $150,000. Take out his business expenses, radon testing, mold testing, marketing materials and everything else the company previously provided (40%) and he's left with $90,000. So his income is cut in half and he has all the headaches of running his own company.

    OK

    2 weeks off a year. 50 weeks at 10 inspects a week. Every darn week for 50 weeks. Now at 600 per inspection because he is adding mold and radon and who knows, lead test to every inspection.

    That is 300,000.00 per year. I want his name and telephone number and address because I am going to live at his home for a couple months and pay him for his strategy in marketing.

    He, himself, is grossing 300,000.00 per year. Even if it were gross your company would be making far to much money off of him and he could do half the work and make the same thing.

    I hear fantastic stories like this from time to time and only have to question them. If I had those marketing skills I would not do inspections. I would just market and have everyone else do the inspections..

    You know my website or you can email me thru this site. If anything what you are saying is straight up...contact me. It is definitely going to be worth someones efforts.

    If his tongue is as gold as you say, I can lay some more gold on it.

    wow
    Here's an example directly from his schedule:

    Base fee $310
    add $200 as the purchase price is $505,000
    add $135 for a radon test
    add $90 for wood destroying organism evaluation
    Total $735

    So his inspection fee would be $510, wdo is required by the state or city I believe and the radon was added by the client.

    As I previously stated income is dependent on certifications. If you can do the wdo and radon also, it adds up quick.

    Read my post, two back now, on why I don't believe he could make that much as an independent.

    And it is 100% true.

    Nope, not where I want to be. For four years straight I was doing over 700 inspections a year. Sure the money is great, but I never want to do that again.

    Unfortunately I can't post his name, Privacy Acts and stuff like that. And he's not my man. I run MN for the company. He works in Missouri.

    By the way, I'll keep posting if people keep asking me questions. It doesn't matter if you believe what I'm telling you or not. I have no incintive to make this up. Most of our inspectors don't make that kind of money, but he and several others do.

    You say he's paying us? I don't get it. BPG gives him the ability to make the money he makes. We pay his education, licensing etc. We provide a product far better than what an independent inspector can offer. He can't make that money without us and he knows that.

    Could most independent inspectors who join a national company make that kind of money? Not from what I've seen. Most don't have the ambition. If they did they'd be running their own multi inspector company and growing it in to a national company.

    Charlie,

    Like I said you can choose to believe me or not, it's up to you. I'm not looking to be a "hero" or anything of the sort. I'm just telling you how it is. What good would it be to have him log on here anyways? You'd just call him a lair also.

    By the way, I won't be ending this thread, it's not mine to end.

    I don't work for US Inspect. I work for BPG, the largest employee based home inspection company in the United States. By the way, I didn't mentor the guy in St Louis. In fact, I never met him. I only see the data sheets sent to me.

    Please remain civilized. If you don't like what I've got to say either don't read it or ignore it, like I'll ignore you.

    My take on this A.D individual is one who has an extreme amount of time on his hands, or is very uneducated, or very unhappy with himself. Most of his post I have seen are extremely negative. This should be a place for us to learn from each other and support one another. A person like this should really be removed from commenting in the future. Mr. A.D...you are only making yourself look very ignorant. That is why I have blocked him from any on my post.

    Like I said, I see the data sheets. It's not hearsay. I honestly don't know how he does it, but he does. Are they unrealistic numbers? Yes, but he does it.

    Yeah there are some in the company that pull it off. Thats the great thing about working for a National Firm such as BPG...yan can totaly focus on getting and doing inspection. I can focus on making Realtor contacts. Sure, all of is can do that, but I do not have the headeaches of beiing tied down to a cell phone. When I get a call for a job I kinding have the client call my personal Secretary. I have been self employed like so many of the others on here, but I have run the numbers over and over, and I am bringing home just as much working for a national company as I did on my own. Plus I have access to great health benefits and 401K. It is almost to good to be true. The best kept secret in the industry.

    KR: I suppose I am the only one on the forum who finds it totally incredulous that you have an employee who performed 500 full inspections and brought in 180K, after paying you 40%, and in the worst fiscal year in this profession in the last 20 years.

    Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the various heilige invisible friends are a lot easier to believe in.

    Flim-flam men such as yourself love to take advantage of slow ecumenic times in order to recruit those who are fear-based and gullible enough to work for someone with little or no scruples.

    Your infomercial is over.

    AD,

    I suppose I am the only one on the forum who finds it totally incredulous that you have an employee who performed 500 full inspections and brought in 180K, after paying you 40%, and in the worst fiscal year in this profession in the last 20 years.
    You can believe it or not. I've told you. Rob (who runs our Indianapolis office) has told you. Remember, that inspector didn't bring in 180K, he brought in 300k. His cut was 180k. He didn't pay us 40%, we paid him 60% and we paid his expenses out of our 40% and took on all of his liability.

    Flim-flam men such as yourself love to take advantage of slow ecumenic times in order to recruit those who are fear-based and gullible enough to work for someone with little or no scruples.

    Your infomercial is over.
    With responses like this I can see why you don't work that much. How exactly do I or the company I work for have "little or no scruples"? We work hard, we pay our employees fairly, we give them great benefits, we stand behind our inspections, we give our clients better protection than an independent inspector can, we require our inspectors to be better than the typical independent inspector. So how is any of that unscrupulous?

    Please also remember I have not written anything in this thread attempting to "recruit" anyone. I'm merely trying to defend the original poster from those independent inspectors who don't know any better.
