IDFPR 3 Hour CE Class – Free in Your Office


What Does the IDFPR Require Home Inspectors to do?

You drove your client to many different houses.  They finally chose the house of their dreams.  You helped them negotiate a fair price and the contract is signed.  Now it is time for the home inspector.  The IDFPR does have a Standard of Practice and minimum requirements that a home inspector must do.  This class is designed to explain what that minimum is.  We will also discuss what is common amongst home inspectors and when an inspector becomes overkill.  The tools that they use will be brought to the class.  The goal is to make sure your client is receiving the house that they expected.  Because an unhappy client can create some unpleasant “word-of-mouth” comments.  And even though the three most important words about real estate are location, location, location.  The three most important words regarding real estate agents are reputation, reputation, reputation.  So let us help you help your clients by understanding this essential part of the real estate process.
