As you are probably aware a home inspection is a documented visual evaluation of the home to determine its present condition.

Homes and commercial properties that are being refinanced, foreclosed or are vacant still require frequently updated drive-by inspections, photo inspections and verification reports submitted to national field service companies.

    I worked for a company in NJ ARECI who paid 3 and 4 dollars an inspection. They sat in an office while others drove around all day and I know for a fact they were making a lot more money. They had no concern for the amount of time or hours their employees were working.

    Also in Texas. But I LOVE this work. My car gets close to 30mpg, and that helps. Currently I work for 2 companies. The more recent one pays better but not many jobs. The other is one I have done since late Feb '11. I lost it when I was hospitalized in May with a ruptured gall bladder. But my manager called to ask me back part time so I can get my foot back in the door. Hoping to eventually get enough to live on again.

    Of course, I have no one but me in my home, so no one to complain of long hours. Driving around, playing with tech gadgets, taking pics, and sometimes getting to go in vacant houses...for me it's a dream job. I'm just an old hippie, I guess. Works for me.

    If ANYONE knows of other companies in East Texas that need part time help... well, already got a set of keys and lockbox codes! Let me know...
