I’m very comfortable with the whole process, If Mentoring wasn’t mandatory in Ct I would have been inspecting a year ago. I have done ride a few ride alongs with an inspector and understand the entire process. I have been a consultant for many years helping people find property, giving full evaluations, helping them understand what’s involved with the repairs and rough estimates for repairs so they know what they are getting into before they put a bid in. I am a Master Carpenter/Remodeler with extensive knowledge of codes and that help me through the testing process.
So basically I have been inspecting from a different approach for a long time. I understand it is different in the middle of a Realestate transaction and is different in a pre-sale Inspection.
I should be an easy mentee with my background and hopefully I will get someone to take me on in the near future. I agree that I may need to look outside of what would be a good working radius because of the competition issues, thanks for that advice and will keep in touch with my progress.
Don’t get me wrong, I will appreciate being walked through the entire process by a certified inspector and having guidance through the report process.
Meanwhile I’ll keep building and it will happen eventually
