In an ever more competitive inspection market, it is important to be steps ahead of your competition. We will discuss four categories of income to add to your bottom line for your home inspection business. Some will be simple that raise your inspection fee and add value to your inspections. We will discuss related types of inspections that will add services to your company while broadening and diversifying your company. We will move to other opportunities that fit well with our profession that are not typical inspections. They could further diversify your business and could grow to businesses themselves. We will complete the discussion with other items that can be used as side hustles to supplement you and your business which many are not related to home inspections whose purposes are to fill gaps in income or purely for diversification. These to may become a business by themselves. These inspection add-ons can be used to keep you moving forward, delivering more than your competition, and growing multiple streams of income. Some of these opportunities you will have known of, while others you may not have known that they exist.
