Ownership Benefits FAQ

To start a home inspection business, there are a few key factors you’ll need to consider. One of them is that you may have to acquire a license and certification to perform work for your clients as a home inspector. Whether or not you’ll need this will depend on the laws and regulations in the state where you work in. In most states, you’ll be required to undergo an accredited training program according to the licensing board or department of consumer affairs. Organizations like the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) offer these courses online and in person. Even when it’s not required, it may help you establish credibility and give you the competitive edge to earn a higher income.
