Steps to Becoming a Home Inspector

Effective July 1, 2011, the State of Florida Home Inspector law requires all home inspectors to be state certified. Home inspectors who continue to operate without state certification may be subject to hefty fines of $1000 or more. Realtors may incur civil liability for using non-certified home inspectors. An occupational license alone is no longer sufficient. A 120 hour home inspection course by an accredited institution is mandatory.

Good job news - a home inspection is performed on 95% of all purchases!

Today, almost 95% of homes listed for sale or under contract with mortgage lenders utilize a home inspection by a licensed home inspector with proper Florida licensing and credentials. Getting a Florida Home Inspector license enables you to enter a necessary profession which is a new, exciting and profitable opportunity.
