Home Inspector Confidential by Matt Fellman

Insider Secrets to becoming a Successful

Home Inspector

"This book contains my opinions and thoughts from nearly twenty years spent crawling over, under, around, and through houses. I will talk about everything—from breaking bottles of wine in houses to what to do if you’re attacked by a raccoon in a crawlspace to what type of buyer is most likely to sue you. I will also share many of my pitfalls, in hopes that you can learn something from them. I know I sure have."

So you want to be a successful home inspector? Well, I have some great news! Being a successful home inspector is an amazing career. The money is good bordering on great. You rarely have to travel away from your family. You can largely set your own schedule. And lastly, the work is really enjoyable.

The greatest part to being a successful home inspector is that no training is needed and it’s so easy a child could do it. Also, inspectors assume no liability for mistakes they make, and there is an endless supply of work, regardless of the time of year or the state of the economy. It’s really basic stuff that anyone who has worked on houses before can do.

"You can technically be the best inspector in the world, but if you can’t or don’t communicate what you see in a manner that people can understand and use, it doesn’t matter. To be a successful home inspector you must understand where your client is coming from and what they need from you."
