A home inspector completes building inspections before properties are sold to ensure they are up to code and safe to inhabit. They are responsible for evaluating a house’s air conditioning units, electrical wiring, plumbing systems, security systems, and structural components. Based on their findings, they will flag any repairs that need to be done and complete an inspection report for review. Home inspectors work with real estate agents and their clients, and they frequently travel for work.
