Comments on: Home Inspection as a Career in This Downturn Wed, 21 Aug 2013 10:45:36 -0500 hourly 1 By: frankschulteladbeck Thu, 13 Nov 2008 16:05:44 +0000 I am with you Phil. I hope things are going well for you in Pennsylvania. Any real estate job at a time like this needs to be done because you love it, but I have to say, if you can make it during these trying times, you will be a stronger professional.

By: Phil Houck Thu, 13 Nov 2008 13:46:51 +0000 I must aggree. This is not an easy business to start or maintain. Marketing in terms time takes up a large part of every day, usually seven days a week. Marketinig in terms of cost can get out of hand if you don’t have good business sense. Don’t get into home inspectins for the money. Money dosen’t come easy in the best of times and lately it has been even more difficult.
would I quit? No way! I love what I do and enjoy helping people make an informed decision.
