Home inspection is a professional consulting business that allows inspectors to work in the field, providing key information at a critical time for consumers who are making the largest purchase of their life. Home inspection is rewarding because in two or three hours, inspectors can help people make an informed buying decision. A well-executed home inspection combines broad technical knowledge of all house systems with an ability to communicate technical issues in terms that a layperson can understand.
The home inspection business comes with the freedom of setting your own working hours and days. You may choose to grow into a multi-inspector firm, or prefer to operate as a sole practitioner. Either path can work well, with your reward being well compensated for adding considerable value to people's lives at a crucial time.
