A home inspector conducts a comprehensive assessment of previously owned or newly built houses, town homes, condominiums, manufactured houses, even apartment building, and performs checks to uncover problems such as old gas pipes or water heaters that might not work, rotten wood, termites and more. A home inspector might be hired by a homeowner preparing to sell. Potential homebuyers might hire a Home Inspector prior to purchase. Most lending agencies require a home inspection prior to approving a loan.
As the housing market continues to improve, job growth is expected to increase 8 percent over the next ten years, as fast as the average of all occupations. As new construction increases, there will be greater demand for Home Inspectors for both the new and used home market. *US Dept of Labor, BLS, 2016
