We always pay, 100% of what we owe. But if a payment is reduced it is because it was not completed on time. There are due dates just like in any other business. If you don't complete the job on time, why should a person be paid as if they did? Some people are not used to working as a business for themselves. If we turn in late work to our clients, the banks and mortgage companies, we often do not get paid. Sometimes they even have large charge-backs. This is business to business. That's just how business works. Do it right and on time, and you have nothing to worry about.
We are not sure what “path” it is that we are following from other companies, since we have been in the business longer than 99% of other similar companies in our industry.
How exactly do we take advantage of “desperate folks” by helping them make money for themselves? Since this person does not know any of those we hire, they must be talking about themselves as being “desperate.” Who knows.
Correct, we will not hire people as employees. We hire only Independent Contractors after they take an online course and become certified as a Mortgage Field Service inspector from http://MortgageFieldServices.com The fact that we only hire contractors is written over 42 times in all the documentation that we provide. But you would have to read it to know that. When hiring contractors, we effectually become YOUR client, your customer. Just as we have customers as clients and are not employees to the banks and mortgage companies. We are vendors just like those we hire.
We do not “dump” anything on anyone. If you were a dog groomer you would provide your own tools. You would not expect your customers to pay for them. An electrician or plumber have their own tools.
If we receive a work order that was not completed correctly… not sure what this guy expects. We not provide our clients with substandard work. But even if a Follow-Up is requested, if the work is corrected, we always pay. If a person refuses to correct their mistakes, should we still pay them for shoddy work? Of course not.
Of course there is no way for a vendor to “check” if we were paid or not. That would be our business, not the vendors. You don’t ask Wal-Mart if they paid their vendors for the goods and services you buy. It’s none of our business.
Correct, the amount we pay our vendors is NOT in line with the national average. We pay about $1 to $2 more than the national average. We pay $3 more than the average for the Houston area.
This industry is not a scam. In fact, with the passing of the Dodd/Frank bill 6 years ago, it is now a law that mortgages that are over 45 days past due, have an inspector drive by the property to determine occupancy and condition.
It just goes to show, that people who write negative reviews like this, usually don’t have a clue what they are talking about. less
No one has worked for our company for 3 months without getting paid. We pay when we say we are going to pay, always. Sometimes when you are the #1 company in an area, the lower end companies will get people to write bad reviews on purpose. Just be mindful of that when reading negative reviews. Compare them to the real reviews by real contractors.
This is an example of a fake review from our competitors. Drunken people in rural areas. That's a new one! lol
Of course we are going to respond to inaccurate comments. An investment in yourself to enable you to make a good living for $230 bucks, not bad. Although we are not sure where this person’s numbers come from.
The downloadable phone app is actually $29.99 for iPhones, free for Android. We have no control over that.
There is an industry approved background check and a $10 volt stick. But those do not add up to even half of $230.
As for training, people should decide for themselves. http://MortgageFieldServices.com It allows you to become a Certified inspector.
The national average pay per inspection is $3 to $4. We often double that. Our inspections take 10 minutes for the majority, and about 20 minutes for interior inspections.
This is not employment. This is self-employment and we become your client. Some people just need supervised direction while others enjoy the freedom of building their own company. Everyone is different.
