Hi all, I'm new here, but there sure seems to be a lot of discussions and passionate members! I'd like to get some feedback on a potential idea. I bought my first property last year. At the time I found it weird that each prospective buyer would independently purchase their building and pest inspection report from separate companies. That sounds like a waste. Since only a single bidder will win the sale, why not share the cost? Of course, that would only make sense for areas where it is likely that there would be several bidders. So it may not apply so much for private sales but it would make a lot of sense for hot auction areas... As I'm a software developer and aspiring entrepreneur, I'm considering building an online platform that would do just that. After doing some research, I quickly found a few websites that do this already. Some have died but a few are still around. Many inspection companies also have a search capability on their own website where one can purchase an existing report. However, it appears that there is no clear "go to" website at this point. The platform would work as follows. The user simply enters the address of the property. If there is no report found then the user can select among various inspectors covering the area, and pays the full price. The inspector performs the inspection and uploads the report, which is sent to the buyer. If an existing report is found, the user can purchase it at a discounted price. Previous buyers receive some cash back such that everyone ends up paying the same price. The inspection company also takes it cut on each resale. I'd love to hear any thoughts you may have. Would it work? Not work? Why? ps: if there are any real estate agents / B&P inspectors out there that would like to be involved in this project, feel free to get in touch with me directly.
