Since the 1970s, home inspections have become a standard practice in real estate closures. The consumer demand for this type of consultative service has risen dramatically.
It is estimated that approximately 60% of resale homes in North America are inspected prior to sale/contract closures. By all accounts, there is considerable room for growth in this profession.
Possible career paths include:
- Licensed Home Inspector
- Sole Proprietor
