  1. @Marc Bob is awesome. That's great you were able to get to know him a little bit more from the article! Actually, he is one of our main representatives for upcoming shows and conferences. When things pick back up, I'm sure Bob would love to meet you.
  2. @Jim Katen You're completely right--Bob has been a trailblazer for inspector-specific insurance and has made big contributions to the industry at large. And, we would love to protect you and your business! If you have any questions or concerns about your quote or our program, don't hesitate to reach out. Thanks for commenting!
  3. @Les We're lucky to have Bob as a part of our team. Thanks for the input, as always!
  4. Hello, everyone! I hope that you are all well and safe during this time. Right now, it's more important than ever to be managing your risk. Read about what Bob Pearson, who we consider to be The Godfather of home inspection insurance, has to say about effectively managing your risk. Enjoy! ---- When Bob Pearson sees a need, he fills it. Having performed over 10,000 home inspections himself, Pearson has a unique and unparalleled understanding of home inspecting. As such, he was able to use his knowledge to create an insurance program for a profession that insurers hadn’t rea
  5. Hi, TIJ Readers! This year, we've decided to do a series on the various aspects of pre-inspection agreements. Hopefully, you can glean something from the following article to help protect yourself from possible claims. Enjoy! -------- The following relates an inspection claim that was resolved with a dispute resolution provision. To protect the insured’s identity, all identifiable characteristics have been omitted or removed. “The inspection completed was not only deficient, but negligent. Specifically, the following items were present at the time of inspection and not
  6. @Tom Raymond You make some good points. As I mentioned in my reply to @Jim Katen's questions, hold-harmless agreements and waivers of liability are not created equal. And, as you mentioned, most are hard to enforce. But, they can act as a deterrent to possible claims. If you are to use one, it's best to have advice from your personal legal counsel and to take your insurance policy into consideration so you can adapt it to your situation and region. As for why insurance companies would care about virus policies when not covering associated damages, there are a couple of reasons:
  7. @Erby That's fair. We'll be sure to make note of that. Your input is appreciated.
  8. @Jim Katen Good question. It's always best to follow what is mandated by your state. Especially if you are wanting to manage your risk as effectively as possible. Even so, we will still be covering our insureds during this time. But, our policy, as some have already mentioned, doesn't speak to spreading infectious diseases, so it would be wise to include a clause in your pre-inspection agreement that you aren't responsible if someone gets sick after your inspection. It's true that it would be hard to prove that in inspector spread the disease, but just from a risk management standpoint,
  9. @Erby Sorry to hear that you are so dissatisfied with the article. It was written to try to be helpful to inspectors during this time since options are so limited. If you have any suggestions as to how we can improve the article we are open to suggestions.
  10. @Les We're sorry to hear of your disappointment in the article. I can say that it wasn't intended to be condescending--but rather be helpful during this difficult time. There are few options for inspectors at the moment, so we wanted to provide general tips they could use to help them not feel stuck and to boost morale. Your comment about knowing our audience is noted. If you have any suggestions on what we can include to improve the article or our future content, we are open to suggestions.
  11. @Marc That is fair. I understand your point. But, I'll also acknowledge that not every business owner has the same experience or success with email campaigns. Thanks for the advice; I will make note of that.
  12. @hausdok You make a good point that the links in that section go to InspectorPro's site. While pure objectivity is a nice thing to have, it is difficult to maintain in a business setting. InspectorPro, after all, is still a business and having a list of competitors isn't in our interest, especially when a lot of our readers are already insured with other providers. We didn't try to assert that InspectorPro is the only option. While we won't be including a list of all insurance companies, we appreciate suggestions. If you have any others, we are open to them.
  13. @Jim Katen I respect your opinion. However, I can say that a lot of thought and research was put into the article to genuinely help and had inspectors' best interest in mind. While some of the points may seem obvious, there are not many options for inspectors at the moment, which leaves more basic practices to be focused on. And, some of those more obvious points are obvious for a reason--since it speaks to the importance of those topics. It wasn't intended to be click-bait, but was rather intended to help inspectors in the different levels of quarantine they are at currently, as well as prov
  14. @Marc You bring up a good point that there are consumers that are adverse to receiving emails. I'm not familiar with the minutia of the study Outbound Engine conducted, so I can't speak to what sample they pulled from--which may or may not include those consumers you mentioned--but I do know that the statistic is considered common knowledge in the marketing realm. However, from a marketing standpoint, I know that it's possible to have successful email campaigns. As for the article not following the "stay at home directive," I will have to respectfully disagree. It doesn't encourage
  15. @Jim Katen We're sorry to hear about your disappointment in the article. It truly was intended to give help in the current situation--especially since options are so limited for inspectors at the moment. Is there anything in particular you would like to discuss?
