Default Re: Inspection Pricing Details

The cost of doing business plus profit factored into your business plan. As you said, "cost of inspection varies widely". Specific discussion of pricing is probably against the law. Current proposed TREC law changes are empowering them to investigate anti-trust allegations. I am confident they are aiming for bigger game than home inspectors but still not a good idea to discuss pricing on a forum. I'll end with what an old foundation repair guy told me 30 years ago. I asked, "how do you determine price"? He said, with a grin, whatever I can get out of them". The business plan model sounds better but I am sure the majority of inspectors use that old-timer's model.
