To be eligible for level 2 pay

  • complete 470 inspections
  • earn your wood-destroying insect license, Indiana State requirement

For all inspectors, the most current generic agreement is found here

Note: that means, the majority of agreements are similar, there may be alternative arrangements for people that bring different skills sets and/or activities to the business.

For example, by assisting in marketing and securing a major team in the area, you may get paid for each inspection they send or something to that effect. Another example is assisting with Commerical inspection expansion into other states by being the marketeer.  Train another inspector and you may get compensated for that time.

There are so many variables out there it’s unending. The bottom line, create value that results in increased revenues consistently and get compensated.
