Regardless of future business opportunities, it sounds like there's a lot to be learned in their week-long class! Be sure you post your "menu" when folks start asking you to "just take a look" at a rig :-).

Howard, with my Heating, Air Conditioning, Electrical and Propane background, this is really appealing to me. How much of an opportunity is there to make enough money to make the training worthwhile?

Thanks again for your honest reporting and valuable insight. We hope to be full timing in the fall of 2019, if you decide to be inspector' s we'll be contacting you ; )

Just took a look at their site, and to be frank, I don't think their prices are out of line. I would certainly get the premier if I were looking at an expensive DP. Even their least expensive would be worth the money if it saved you buying a rig with say, a leak in the roof or around windows. Just my opinion.

Michael,
There is an excellent opportunity to make money for the right person with the right drive and patience. It's about a $5,000 investment and it may take a year or two to recover the investment and make a profit. But if it takes off like I think it might, there is tremendous potential.

My fear is that too many people that aren't really serious about it as a business will try to take it on and then find that they aren't really cut out for the business aspects of it. They need self-motivated go-getters, with great people and business skills and they sort of compare it to someone investing in a franchise opportunity. The problem is there isn't any revenue or profitability data yet to help "sell" the business.

Also, I think the business is more suited to someone that stays stationary or regional than to a traveling full-timer, but I could be wrong. I'll be elaborating on all this soon.

sharonsocal,

From the inspection purchaser's viewpoint, the inspection pricing isn't out of line at all. In fact, the "Essential" (which is the lowest level) is an outright bargain considering the time and effort it takes to do the inspection and put together a report.

My statement about pricing was more from the standpoint of the inspector. In my opinion, the "Essential" inspection is priced too low considering the current 50% compensation agreement. I believe the price needs to go up or the compensation percentage to the inspector needs to go up on the lowest level inspection. It's a lot of work. :)

Thanks for looking into this. It will be a huge benefit for inspections to become standardized for those of us who choose to buy 'Used'.
