Hi, I am currently working on completely my licensing to be a certified Professional Home Inspector in September, here in Fort Worth Texas. My question to anyone who might have useful info is: What does employment look like for a newly certified inspector? What type of hours would one work, on average, and what type of pay can you expect? These last two questions pertain to being employed under someone not self employed. Any help would be appreciated!
It will vary from company to company. Even if you are licensed there will be training to get you used to how that employer wants things done. Many companies will have you do one inspection a day in the beginning and if you are doing well enough a second and maybe even a third inspection can be added. Once again varies with the company and with the type of homes being inspected.
Pay also varies and will get better of course as your skills and speed improve to where you can do more inspections each day and able to provide mere services at each inspection.
Pay also varies expect to maybe start out at 25%-30% of the inspection fee, it goes up as you improve and get more experience. Maybe up to 40% This varies a lot.
