Starting a Home Inspection Business!
Starting a home inspection business could be a very profitable business for anyone considering
starting a small business.
Even with the current bad housing market home inspectors are still in demand. While it's true that this country is experiencing a bad housing market, the fact is that the market is bad for sellers. This is seriously an awesome housing market for buyers because housing market values have dropped. Not only this, many people are selling their homes, or are in foreclosure. In both cases, the lack of affordability for the homeowner can seriously work to the advantage of the home buyer.
But before the buyer can close the deal on the home, they will need a home inspector to perform a report on the home. This is why starting a home inspection business can still be very profitable
for anyone to start.
If you don't have time to attend classes, don't let this stop you. You can always sign up and take an online course. This allows you to study at your own pace as you learn about all aspects of home inspection. Penn Foster School www.pennfoster.edu is one that offers this course online and is state-approved.
You will also learn how to market your services. You will need to start affiliating yourself with professional organizations. When you have become a certified and licensed home inspector, you will need to join organizations such as NAHI, or ASHI. These organizations will offer you guidance and professional connections to help you start your business.
It would be great for you to apprentice for a while under an established home inspector. Then you can gain hands-on experience, and you will get a feel for what it's like to perform the more physical aspects of the job.
If you don't mind performing home inspections during any time of year, the ebbs and flows of the business, and if you enjoy helping people find suitable homes, this could be a great business venture for you.
