How to Start a Home Inspection Business

Home Inspection Business Plan & Startup Costs

Make no mistake, home inspection is a business like any other, and starting one off on the right foot is extremely important. Every inspector needs to pay startup costs for tools, training, insurance and more. It’s true: You can become a home inspector in just a few steps (depending on your state), but starting your own business is more intensive. You'll need an inspection license, a business plan sample, even business cards and a logo. The more you’re able to invest in your own education, the quicker your income will climb through the roof. 

In most states, ATI-Training gets you started to become a self-employed home inspector for under $1,000. Starting a new franchise might cost around $50K, but as an independent home inspector entering the field from scratch, barriers to entry are MUCH lower.

ATI is here to make it easy to start a business in home inspection; It’s our specialty.

Steps to Starting Your Home Inspection Business:

  1. Make a Home Inspection Business Plan

    Home inspection business licensure and certification is the most important part of starting your own home inspection business. Getting the proper training can make or break your business.


    Getting the right training is most important step to becoming a home inspector. Even the most experienced contractor or realtor will need to hone their skills in the classroom before they start making money.

  3. Get Home Inspector Liability/E&O Insurance

    You need home inspector insurance to be a trustworthy home inspecting business. Period. Keep safe, make more money, get more clients—it's the name of the game. 

    Home inspectors are responsible for ensuring the safety of a property before a family moves in. Many homeowners will encounter problems years after you have inspected their property and blame you. It’s not a matter of IF you get sued, it’s a matter of WHEN you get sued. All ATI graduates have access to affordable Liability/Errors & Omission Insurance and Pay-Per-Home-Inspection insurance.

  4. Obtain Home Inspector Tool Kits

    Keep your business on-game and competitive with the tools and instruments you need to succeed, like electrical testers, AFCI/GFCI testers and more. 

    You can’t expect to inspect a home without a proper set of tools! You’ll need a combustible gas detector, an infrared thermometer and other tools you can’t find at the corner hardware store. ATI offers graduates a choice of two complete home inspector toolkits, and an itemized list should you ever need a replacement tool.

  5. Get and Represent your own Branded Inspector Apparel

    Home Inspection Business Logos, Branding & More

    A home inspector without a brand is just a guy in a truck. Establishing your own brand helps differentiate you from the competition. This is essential when you just start your business. ATI helps graduates access affordable home inspector apparel like hats, shirts, coats and more. Every business needs a brand. Take ownership of the public eye by working with ATI to create an eye-catching, memorable brand keeping you at the forefront of the market.
