I am interested in becoming a real estate inspector. I reside in SW Michigan and I'm not entirely sure about where to get started. From what I've read here, I believe going through some college courses would be best, in order to gain the most knowledge.
I have very little experience. I did go to school to become a certified real estate appraiser. Unfortunately, I needed to get some hours in and I couldn't find anyone in my area that was willing to take on an apprentice. I am hoping that it won't be the same with this.
Is this business as competitive as the appraisal biz? I would hate to go through all this schooling, only to find out later that I can't break into this business. It is so frustrating...not to mention, expensive.
Your input is very much appreciated.
