Industry & Demand

“Home inspections are a critical part of the home buying and selling process. Knowledge in the field of property inspection has become invaluable, especially in light of stricter legislation on both a state and national level.”  (K. Bartlett Walsh, Quality Assurance Coordinator, National Association of REALTORS)

It is hard to find an industry with such proven demand as property inspection.  It is simply unthinkable to buy or sell a property anymore without true and accurate knowledge of the building’s systems and components (and yes, foreclosed/bank owned/as-is properties ARE inspected prior to purchase.)  It’s also an industry with incredibly diverse revenue opportunity, consisting of existing home inspections, new construction inspections, commercial inspections, a broad range of add-on testing services, and new technologies such as infrared thermography.  It’s estimated that at least 80% of all existing homes are inspected prior to sale – translating to roughly 4 million inspections from this market sector alone in 2011.

Almost all REALTORS® (99%) recommend a home buyer to have a home inspection. (National Association of REALTORS)

It’s clear that consumers, real estate professionals, investors, commercial property managers and more have all adopted our mantra:  “Before You Buy or Sell, Inspect-It 1st.”®

As a trained, professional property inspector, you are a neutral third party that provides a comprehensive assessment of the property.  Sellers use this information to make necessary upgrades or repairs, or adjust the price, before going to market; buyers use this information to gain confidence in their decision, and/or to negotiate repairs and pricing.  Our comprehensive Southwest Institute of Property Inspection (SIPI) school teaches you everything you need to know about conducting a thorough inspection, so no previous experience is required to own an Inspect-It 1st franchise.

For a better understanding of your full opportunity, we encourage you to read about the most common Inspection Services we provide to clients.  To continue learning why Inspect-It 1st is the premier inspection franchise, visit our Training, Support and Launch Package sections.
