Becoming a real estate inspector in Indiana. Muncie Anderson area

2 Replies

It seems to be very easy to get in inspectors license in my area .  Basically some studying 12 hours of practical  on handwerker so  and take a test . With how easy it is I was thinking I should go ahead and do it because I don't have any kind of contractor background or construction background and I'd like to at least have some idea of what  I'm looking for in a good property . I would rather not be solely dependent on other people's information and advice.

That being said once I have the inspectors license I might as well try to use it to make a little bit of extra money to add to my investment fund. 

My question is this. Do Real Estate Investors need or use property inspectors? Or is that just something that retail buyers need because they're not experienced. How could I best market myself to an investor? Ideally I think I would like to just work for one or two investors instead of needing to advertise to the multitude of retail buyers that have a lot of options already.

Thank you for reading my post.

Many inspectors are PT meaning they have a full time job. It helps and one should team up with a few busy realtor offering quality service.

So, yes, investors need inspectors.
