“Happy to be aboard,” said Mohamed Patel, a Sugar Land Texas resident and the new owner of Pillar To Post Home Inspectors, serving the Greater Houston Area, “It’s quite the time to be in home inspection”, Patel said. “The housing market is through the roof, no pun intended,” he said with a grin. “Unfortunately, in order to compete to buy a coveted home, some people waived the right to a home inspection,” Patel continued. “The biggest mistake one can make.”
 The post-horror stories of skipping a home inspection are coming out daily. So many that Pillar To Post has been encouraging “post buy” inspections with great tips on how and why buyers need them. 
 As far as choosing home inspection as a new career, these are industry facts. The U.S. building inspector industry, measured by revenue, is estimated to have a market size of $4.9 billion in 2022, according to global research firm IBISWorld. 
Why it works so well for Mohamed is because he is a natural problem solver. He said he enjoys off-roading as a hobby because “getting stuck and finding a way out is like a big puzzle.” With a meticulous eye and nature, Mohamed made airplane parts for Boeing before deciding on a career in home inspection. “Both jobs take a careful eye for details and detecting,” said Mohamed. “Those are skills I happen to have and enjoy using.”
One of the many reasons Mohamed chose Pillar To Post Home Inspectors, is the innovative technologies the company recently introduced. These advanced technologies, along with the business model, provide an exceptional home inspection with unique and innovative features that are all delivered within a seamless brand experience.
