If you're excited about the possibility of becoming your own boss and are thinking about a home inspection business as your way of achieving that goal, we can tell you that ours is a robust and rewarding industry with plenty of room for growth. It's also one that appeals to a broad range of professionals who have a wide range of interests and areas of expertise, making a Pillar To Post franchise opportunity something that many of them take advantage of. You could be one of those people, too, especially if you display certain characteristics and have certain goals in mind. Let's take a look at a few of them, here.
You Enjoy Being Around Houses and Construction
It's important to note that making an investment in a Pillar To Post franchise does not require that you have past experience in our industry, which means you don't have to be a builder, contractor, or tradesman to succeed with us. While construction experience may provide a slight edge, it's not necessary. That's because we provide extensive training and support to all our new franchisees to get them up to speed on the industry and to enable them to capitalize fully on our time-tested business model. Having said that, if you're thinking about going into the home inspection business, it certainly helps to have a love of houses and construction. Maybe you're a homeowner who has taken pride in the projects you've accomplished around the house. Perhaps you've always loved following the trends in your local real estate market, and pay attention to area construction projects. If so, you can turn these interests into a career that will potentially allow you to foster and grow them into real expertise.
You Want a Positive Work/Life Balance
One of the real benefits of our home inspection business is that it's incredibly flexible. There's virtually no overhead, and you can choose your own hours and work as little or as much as you'd like. This is especially appealing to people who are looking to strike a better work/life balance. These days, many of us feel pressured to put in extra hours at the office and sacrifice the time we could spend with family, friends, or simply by ourselves, to do so. But when you invest in a Pillar To Post franchise, you'll quickly realize how much room there is to set your own schedule and meet your own needs outside of work. All businesses require effort and dedication, especially in the beginning. But in time, as a Pillar To Post franchisee, you might easily find more time to dedicate to other pursuits and interests, for a better work/life balance.
You Are a People Person
As a Pillar To Post franchisee, you'll be around people a lot, often times when they are excited about buying a new home, or worried about selling one. Being in the home inspection business will require you to be forthright and honest about what it is you see or don't see, and that means you should feel comfortable communicating with folks and being around them. After all, your clients will depend on you to help them make important decisions, so being approachable and friendly is important.
