Home Inspection as a Business

There has never been a greater demand for qualified home inspectors as there is today!

Realtors are finding it tough enough to keep up with the knowledge and legalities of listing and selling a home. It has become far more complicated than in the past. Realtors rely heavily on qualified home inspectors to analyze a home before their clients firm up their offer to purchase.

The home inspector completes a thorough inspection of the home without the stress of everything that a home owner or purchaser goes through. A home inspector deals strictly with the facts that the house presents and looks at it all without emotion.

The home inspection industry in part, has evolved due to deficient construction practices, poorer quality of materials and workmanship, as well as awareness of environmental concerns and the need to protect the consumer.

Today’s consumer, although better informed, wants maximum value for what is normally the largest financial investment of their life. Today’s consumer finds little time to gain the knowledge that is required to conduct a proper home inspection and therefore relies on a qualified home inspector.

Professional home inspection is the fastest growing occupation in the country. An estimated 5.37 million home inspections were conducted in the United States last year and this number is steadily increasing.
