Home inspection is part of the day-to-day business for any real estate agent. You will spend plenty of time reading through inspection reports with your clients, and many clients will want to know your opinion of the inspector’s findings. By knowing what a home inspector is required and not required to report on, you will be able to advocate for your clients and help them buy or sell their home at a fair price.
Home inspections cover nearly everything in and around the home and other structures on the property. The roof, exterior, structural elements, interior, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and all components are subject to inspection. A home inspector can identify defects and potential hazards in a property before you buy or sell.
The process of buying or selling can be stressful, but a thorough home inspection report can give you piece of mind knowing the entire property has been checked.

Why Take a Home Inspection Course?
A home inspection report can make or break a sale, so having knowledge of the process and what the inspector looked at is valuable for helping your clients understand any issues that were found.
