Jeff, I do hope you are planning on doing things right, It does sound like it. But saying that IMO you need to at least get the following things. Decent but resonably priced E&O insurance, starting out you will not need the cadilac version, David Wicker (InspectorPro) is a good start to look at. Decent inspection equipment again don’t cheap out but don’t get all the fancy bells and whistles or you will just break your bank and go hungry. Try out several of the sample inspection programs out there and prepare to pay for one of them. Freeware will look it,be limited and your clients will see the cheap in them. Personally I went with Home Guage but others like it are good. Get a good web site setup, maybe check out Ian at FullView to get an idea of what you want. Plan on not getting a lot of work to begin with, don’t get discouraged it will come but depending on your area, which by the way you need to fill out in your profile so we know where you are, will determine how fast you grow. Don’t fall for the gimmick advertisers who tell you they can get you on page one Google search for $XXX a month, not worth it and you will go broke. See about setting up a FB page it does help a bit, slow but starting out anything helps.But after all that good luck and God bless. Oh and learn to like hotdogs, the cheap ones, you may be eating them for a few months as your business starts to grow.
