In Pa you need 100 guided inspections.
I get to testify again on Friday. The inspector they hired when they bought an old farm house missed a few things. One being a missing support beam causing floor to drop 4 inches. Over 75,000 in damages. Ruined roof, siding, plaster, hardwood floors and electrical.

I've gone through a course for certification and have obtained a certification number. Michigan, however, does not require a license for inspectors. Dumb if you ask me, anyone can say they are an inspector here.

I took the Cert Courses for "extra training" and education. Lately I have been thinking of turning the reins over to the son and pursuing more inspections. Is anyone doing this FT or a majority of their income? If so I would love to talk.

I think if I was going to pursue I would take the ASHI course within 6-12 months. As they say "knowledge is power"

The outer banks of NC from, Currituck beach all the way down to SouthPort beach has large volume and its all year round work.

You get extra for riding the fairey boats from island to island, i hear some inspectors just buy a boats and travel the coast doing the outer banks for the Realtor's, most loans on the outer banks get special inspections because they are conventional loans. For instance all outlet covers have to be brass??

I dont know if that's true, but when we do work on the outer banks and i see all the pics every home has brass outlet covers with GFI's. and the front or back porch swings have to be anchored from the top and bottom with stainless steal chains..
