Home inspectors are tasked with examining the condition of residential and commercial properties, from insulation to foundation and more. As a home inspector, you will look at plumbing, electrical systems, heating setups, chimneys, and more. You will then report the findings as necessary to help people make informed decisions about buying or selling a property.
Home inspectors help both buyers and sellers pinpoint potential structural, mechanical, and safety issues with a property so that they can be proactively addressed during the sale process. You will play a crucial role in the real estate transaction by identifying things like:
- The structural integrity of the home and its foundation
- Issues with mold and how they can be remediated
- The presence of lead paint
- Whether or not radon or asbestos was found on the property
- Potential threats to the structure such as wood destroying organisms
- Septic tank, spa and pool, sprinkler system, and smart home concerns
