What if an agent (or agents) specifically request me for the pre-listing inspection? Will NACHI still pay for it?

Also, who will pay for the re-inspection after repairs are made?

Is the program only available for InterNACHI members that are Certified Master Inspectors or can state licensed InterNACHI CPI members take part as well?

1. Does the seller or listing agent get a copy of the report or do they need to download it like everyone else?

2. I think listing agents are going to love it, and I can market it to them, but I don't want my marketing efforts to supply my competitors with the jobs. Can listing agents or sellers ordering the inspection from you specify the inspector the want?

I didn't see mine answered.

1) Is Porch going to be involved in any way shape or form ? (Now or in the future)

2) Once we get started on our own, how do you see the realtors reacting to us selling them back the leads we got from their listing?

Just read the informative FAQ's. I have some agents interested.
My question is (as mentioned before) will the program also accept limited major system inspections?
Roof-Plumbing-Electrical-HVAC.

Most of the agents I have spoken with would rather have this type of limited info available for public download & feel it may scare off potential buyers if it is a full comp with tons of other stuff.
It also will encourage whomever purchased it to call the performing inspector to do a full comp.

Still don't like the Home Advisor approach to distributing the request InterNachi receives. Do you have an alternate approach?

Kenneth, that page must be 10 years old. InspectorOutlet sells hundreds of thousands of large PDFs and no one ever complains about not being able to open. And other software companies use PDFs and I've never heard a complaint about being able to open one. The last time I had an issue opening a large PDF was maybe 15 years ago. And you can put links in a PDF, links to your FB page or links to videos or whatever. PDF is a world standard that everyone uses for everything.

The question about Porch being currently involved is answered in InterNACHI's Free Listing Inspection Program - InterNACHI . Do a search for Porch on that page. I can't rule out that they'll never be involved in the future. Tomorrow they may come out with an offer to pay for pre-listing inspections and ask InterNACHI to administer the offer. We'd certainly consider it. But as of now, no. And that answer is on the FAQ page.

That's an interesting idea. So I don't have an answer for you. Certainly has my attention.

I'm quite familiar with Home Advisor. They are our corporate neighbor here in Colorado. Their people have been in my office many times attempting to partner with InterNACHI (we have so far refused). I don't see how their approach to distributing requests is anything like ours. Exact opposite I would say.

Once the defects are found, the sellers will have to disclose the isses. DId you find in your BETA testing that the sellers were ok with this? IN MArylnad there is a disclose/disclaim in the contract.

Yeah, no problem. Sellers aren't really trying to hide that which is either going to be discovered anyway, or obvious.
