home inspection service
A Home Inspection Service is an excellent work from home business because it doesn't require a large investment and can be started part-time. Before getting started, you will need training in home inspection and other home construction fields.
You will need to check with your local government agencies about licenses and permits needed for a home inspection service in your area. As well as setting up a LLC (Limited Liability corporation) and liability insurance to protect you against any unfortunate situations.
A home inspector examines the house from the top to the bottom. Such as checking the condition of the foundation, electrical system, plumbing, insulation, ventilation system, and the roof.
You will also look for water damage, mildew, insect infestation, and any other problem. Your report will become very important to both the buyer and the seller as these problems will have to be addressed before the house can be sold.
The actual investigation may be difficult for someone who is not agile or familiar with attics, climbing on roofs, or damp basements. Consider some of these working conditions to make sure they will not cause you any problems.
I feel that hands on experience is the best way to learn a trade. So, if possible, work with a home inspection service as an apprentice or a contractor in as many of the fields as you can. This will give you important hands on training and tips that will accelerate your learning the business greatly.
Start Your Own Home Inspection Service is a handy book that will help you get the information you will need to decide if a home inspection business will be right for you. As a home inspector, you can earn $500 - $800 a day examining the interior and exterior of a home and giving potential home-buyers your professional, informed opinion. Learn everything you need to know to get started in this booming field.
Another way is to take a course from a reliable source such as the American Society of Home Inspectors. It will also be very helpful to have some engineering background and remodeling experience. This would be a great addition to working as an apprentice.
As stated before, it would be necessary to have some training in such fields as electrical, plumbing, and air conditioning. Also swimming pool repair, black mold removal, roof moss, kitchen renovations, and cleaning carpet stains will be good background.
These skills will help you to find problems, and assist you in explaining to the buyer and seller what is involved in repairing them.
You will need home inspection software, a video camera or regular camera, test equipment, flashlights, ladders, and other equipment. The camera's will be very useful in showing your clients the problems you discover, so they can make the proper repairs.
Most of these items can be found at any of your local home improvement stores, and don't forget to get a business account for your home inspection business so you can buy wholesale.
