I’ve read through some similar threads but wanted to post this one to get a chance to get some more personalized advice and get the chance to interact with some of you all as well as introduce myself.
I am just about to launch my home inspection business and some advice from the pros and even others just getting started would be greatly appreciated. I am located in the Columbia, SC area and went through the ICA course and the state required exams to get my license. I think that I have everything in place to begin getting my name out there but am nervously awaiting that “oh, ****” moment once I schedule my first inspection. I am a DIY person who has done a couple live-in flips and worked with some plumbing/electrical/HVAC and I have great attention to detail and am confident that I will provide a very thorough report for my first client but hearing some stories/lessons/mistakes from other’s as they were getting off the ground would be great.
Also - do you recommend just focusing on providing the best inspection I can until I am more comfortable before getting certified for and adding other services? (Radon, mold, pools, etc.)
Regardless, I am happy this forum exists and am excited to be a part of it. I have scrolled through several threads over the past couple weeks and the community of people always looking to help others is great.
