The Housedoctors Inspection Training InstituteBecome a part of our community. Become a home inspector.
BackgroundSince home inspection came on the real estate scene in the mid-1970s, consumer demand for the service has been growing. Home inspection is a young and growing professional, consulting service aimed at helping homebuyers make one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives. Savvy and demanding buyers want to know all they can about their potential homes before making their final decisions. As a result, the opportunity is there for you to succeed as a home inspector.
The Home Inspection Market
The numbers continue to grow. The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) estimates that 77 percent of the homes sold in the United States and Canada today are inspected prior to purchase.
The market is still underserved and the remaining growth potential is considerable. This trend leaves room for many to become home inspectors, build a career, even establish a home inspection company.
A home inspection is a documented, professional opinion of a home-based on a visual evaluation and operational testing of the home's systems and components to determine their current condition.
Ultimately, property inspection training is only as good as the people teaching it.
