What tools do I need?

Be sure to check out our recommended tools in our Amazon store:
The minimum tools you will need include:

  • high-quality respirators
  • good flashlight
  • camera
  • moisture meter
  • outlet tester
  • minimal hand tools (screwdrivers, nut drivers, etc.)
  • ladder
  • safety gear, (eye protection, gloves, shin guards, jumpsuit)
  • computer/software
  • vehicle (think gas mileage)
    In one super busy month when I was inspecting with my original gas-hog 350cid van, I spent $750 in fuel alone. When I doubled my gas mileage, it paid for a newer efficient van. Consider an efficient vehicle.

Other nice to have tools include:

  1. thermal camera (I like the Flir E4)
  2. drone (DJI makes great drones)
  3. electrical multimeter (you can’t go wrong with an entry-level Fluke meter)

I would consider buying these later, but I love all of these tools.


What are the opportunities for a licensed home inspector?

While many inspectors are self-employed, there are also possibilities to collaborate with multi-inspector firms and franchises. If considering an offer from another company, it is crucial to thoroughly review the terms. We highly advise seeking legal counsel to assess and ensure the best possible outcome.

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development offers home inspectors opportunities to assess properties under housing programs like Section 8. They also collaborate with Certified 203(k) Consultants for property rehabilitation projects. Partnering with HUD allows inspectors to contribute to community improvement and housing accessibility.

Sewer Scopes
This service is often an easy sell to clients, as you can emphasize the importance of inspecting something they can’t see but is potentially the most expensive aspect of their property. Sewer scopes provide valuable information about the condition of the sewer line, helping homeowners and buyers make informed decisions about maintenance and potential issues.

Energy Audit
An energy audit is an inspection survey and an analysis of energy flows for energy conservation in a building. It may include a process or system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output.
A home energy audit helps individual homeowners find out their residential consumption and energy flow. An audit is useful to determine areas of your home where there is energy loss and by identifying where power usage may be curbed to earn savings.
