The home inspection industry

With the South African government’s emphasis on consumer laws and the public more and more aware of their consumer rights, the SA home inspection industry is forecast to grow rapidly over the next 10 years.It is expected that South Africa will follow the United States trend where nearly 8 out of 10 homes sold are inspected before they are sold.

More than 22 000 houses are sold monthly in SA and all of these buyers are prospective customers who would benefit from home inspections.  This is the vast potential of the home inspection market.
