Happy Mother’s Day to all the women out there today! We are taking this day to not only celebrate moms but to focus on the amazing women in the home inspection industry. Buying a home is one of the most important decisions people will ever make. Statistics show that women are often the ones who make the final decisions on large purchases like a home. From pillar to post, women want to make sure their families are happy, healthy and thriving in their new home. Female inspectors come from all walks of life and are growing in numbers every year. Our very own inspector, Suzanne Greive has been an inspector and educator in the field for many years. She started out in real estate and moved on to home inspection. She had several jobs in other industries before finding her niche in home inspection. She enjoys the flexibility it offers along with the opportunity to mentor other women in the field.
Women in the home inspecting industry? You bet! In a field that’s historically male, women are fast becoming much more than just a margin. And it’s about time.
Inspecting has a lot to offer, such as the chance to build your own business from the ground up. You can also work as little or as much as you like. So if you have a love of houses but thought that inspecting wasn’t a good career path for women, here are 4 reasons to think again.
