Did you know that 25 years ago … back in the days of Dan Rather at CBS … the average mortgage inspection fee was higher than a average mortgage inspection today. Twenty-five years ago, mortgage inspectors did not need to take so many photos … today mortgage inspection require 7 photos. Most inspections back then required no photos and the inspector was paid $1.50 for each Polaroid photo. There were no fees for background checks as there were no background checks. There were no insurance requirements.
Today the average mortgage inspection fee is $3. You must pay a background check fee and purchase a $1,250 insurance policy BEFORE you perform your first $3 inspection.
