(September 23, 2004) – In the wake of news that the number of home inspectors in Massachusetts is falling, the state’s REALTOR? association is surveying members to see if it really is an issue that should be addressed.
The Boston Business Journal recently reported that the number of licensed home inspectors has declined nearly 30 percent since 2001, when the state legislature enacted legislation requiring home inspectors be licensed, carry errors and omissions insurance, and fulfill continuing education requirements, says John Dulczewski, director of communications and professional development for the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS?.
MAR hadn't heard anything from its members about a decrease in the number of home inspectors prior to the publication of the article and is asking members whether their customers or clients have had difficulty in finding a home inspector. That will determine if it's an issue that should be looked at more closely, he says.
Members can contact MAR at 800/725-6272 or submit their input using a form on the association's Web site.
