Full time home inspector wanted for local home inspection company. Ideal candidate would already be certified and have a current Indiana state home inspector license, however we will consider candidates who are currently in the process of obtaining certification and their license. We are looking for someone permanent and who would possibly be interested in running the day to day operation in Indianapolis in the future as we are looking to expand.

Each home inspection takes anywhere from 2-4 hours to complete at the property and then another 1-3 hours afterwards completing the report. Everything that is visible and accessible in the home must be inspected and reported on. This includes the electrical system, plumbing, HVAC system, roof, attic, foundation, windows, doors, exterior, appliances etc. The job can be a bit physically demanding as you are required to enter attics and crawlspaces if the entrances are accessible and within standard size guidelines.
In most cases the client (and sometimes real estate agent) is there and will walk around with you asking questions about the home and it's systems. Digital photos of the home and any defects must be taken and will be uploaded into the report after the inspection. After each inspection, you will go home and complete the report. Depending on the condition of the home, this could take another 1-3 hours to complete. Please keep in mind that these times will be more when first starting out until you get used to the software. The report must include detailed descriptions of any defects that were noted during the inspection, photos of said defects and recommendations on repairs. Once the report is completed you will then email the report to the client in PDF format. Our policy is that the report will always be emailed to the client the same day as the inspection. no exceptions.
