Can Home Inspectors Diversify?
Interested in pursing a home inspection career? According to the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), there are a number of ways a home inspector can diversify their services.
For example, a home inspector can offer a variety of inspections, such as termite, swimming pool and spa, well and septic system, and home maintenance. Troubleshooting inspections for homes with problems, prelisting inspections for homes about to be sold, and inspections of new homes throughout the construction process or at the pre-delivery stage can also be offered.
Additionally, some inspectors do radon, lead, asbestos, and carbon monoxide testing; mold inspections; and inspections of commercial buildings. There are many opportunities to offer a full range of services to consumers.
