Why Choose Home Inspection

Home inspections are desirable because they protect buyers, real estate agents, banks and mortgage companies by disclosing problems in a property before the home sale is completed. Depending on the severity of the situation, the cost to repair those areas can be substantial. Home Inspectors can save a buyer thousands of dollars by determining the true condition of a home. That's why Home Inspectors are valued so highly!

Plus, you'll be training at home to enter a field that gives you the opportunity to work full-time or part-time—for yourself or for one of the many home inspection companies and franchises located in nearly every community.
