Alternative Income - Field Inspections

Rebecca Fair has compiled a comprehensive list of field inspection sites. She offers the list for a very nominal fee. I've asked Rebecca to write about it here. Her website is

With the slow down of the real estate and loan markets, a notary must diversify to continue a successful, profitable Mobile Notary business. With foreclosures on the rise, there is a need for Field Service Inspectors all over the country.

Field Service Inspectors are used to provide on-site property inspection services for lenders, loan servicers and investors. There are many types of property inspections that are needed, most of which enable a mortgage servicer or insurance company to make decisions on their properties with the information received from an inspection. Some of the basic information collected on an inspection would be occupancy status and damages. As a Field Service Inspector, you are responsible for completing basic inspection reports, photographing the property and uploading your report and photos to the hiring companies' website. If you are a licensed Real Estate Agent, you will earn more for BPOs than an unlicensed person completing basic inspections and drive by inspections.

I have compiled a list of over 200 companies that hire independent Field Inspectors and have included links to three more web based lists. The list is easy to use and has hyper links to all of the 200+ companies, making it easy for you to locate and sign up as a vendor with companies that want to hire you. The list includes links to field inspection groups and forums so you have a place to ask the experts and research companies that hire field inspectors.

The list is great for Real Estate Agents, Mobile Notaries and Loan Officers that are looking for other streams of income. You won't get rich quick, but you should be able to earn some extra money without a lot of effort. At least that's been my experience.
