I had a similar company contact me a year or two ago about the same kind of work. It was 100% insurance related. Go to house, roughly measure house from exterior, note if they had dogs, tramboline, pool, large tree near house, etc. I believe they paid a little more but I was interested at those rates. It could be lucrative if you worked in large city. Semed that most of their workers had other jobs, were husband/wife teams or retired.

Retiree and semi-retirees make up a huge pool of low paid part time jobs such as meter readers, poll takers, census workers (one of my ex-subs retired and now works for the Agri census, a part time job that actually pays pretty well), bus drivers, Limo services, etc.

Last time an ins company checked my home (after purchase), it was drive-up, stop in middle of street, take one photo, spend 5 minutes filling out a form, and drive on.

Do 6 an hour at $5 apiece, that's $30 per hour. Even considering gas costs, that's a lot better than flipping burgers or working at a big box home improvement store.

I have had a couple of calls for these insurance related inspections. One page questionare looking for handrails, general condition and front/rear photos. None paid less than $50. It costs $5 to start the suburban.

About ten years ago I took photos for the MLS, paid about 3.50 a shot. There were a lot of retirees and husband wife teams doing it. I guess they are all out of biz now with digital cameras.

lenders are using these services

Yes, lenders are using these services to check if property occupied, general condition, if for sale and to post/drop contact letters.
I did this for a short time to supplement income. It is mostly just drive by, 1-3 pics, short forms and submit. Unless you have large quantities on small areas, the fee is not worth the time with gas expense, etc.
