Welcome John. Do you have a website yet? A good start is a visit to Dominic’s websiteto get set up with a good website and a professional who doesn’t push his services on new home inspectors just to make a buck. He is a IT geek and will serve you well.
The next stop should be this website to get a professional perspective of the home inspection industry. Pay close attention to the information provided on this site, it is sound advice.
Be wary of vendors claiming to get you instant business from the used house salesmen, many are has-been used house salesmen who couldn’t hack it selling used homes and now prey on new home inspectors to line their pockets.
I have helped many local multimillion dollar multi-inspector firms get started. We startedour firm in 2006 and have performed over 4000 inspections and employ 6 part-time associates.
Many new inspectors tend to run to realtor offices with candy and donuts in hand, as you will find out, you may be asked to do favors for them in return. You are an inspector, you work for your client, not the used house salesmen.
If you have any questions or need advice, feel free to contact me. Good luck with your new career and once again, welcome to NACHI.
