How to become an inspector

3 Replies

I have started real estate investing, but I would also like to know how become a real estate inspector. Anybody know how much it cost or if I have to do an apprenticeship after I finish the course?

What state are you in? In Texas, inspectors must be licensed through the Texas Real Estate Commission. However, in many other states, there are no licensing requirements as of yet.

Missouri doesn't have licensing for home inspectors as of yet. There are a couple of places that you can get training for it though. Here is a site I found online that offers such training in Missouri. Hope this helps.
