Enroll in our Six Week Guide. Get weekly goal setting, check-ins, and resources from our team to get you started in home inspecting
There's just one home inspector for every 190 homes sold in America.
Home inspection is an overlooked industry that has quietly produced six figure earners for the last decade. With nearly six million homes projected to be sold in 2022 and about 30,000 home inspectors, it's a profession that is still in demand.
Home inspection is a flexible job that pays well and prioritizes good communication over technical skills (but those will help!) Most full time home inspectors started part-time as an extra way to make money.

Their Generation Y (Gen Y) children will add to the sales volume at the same time as they become first-time homebuyers.
