Become a certified home inspector
The home inspection industry is one of the most exciting new business opportunities in South Africa. This industry is especially suitable for small business and entrepreneurs because the prospects for growth are excellent, start-up costs are low and because a high level of personalised service will enhance the prospect of success.
The new Property Practitioner’s law, soon to be published in draft form and which will regulate home inspection services in South Africa, is expected to create an additional 10 000 jobs in the property inspection sector.
SAHITA training provides new and existing home inspectors with a head start in this exciting and fast-growing sector of the property industry. SAHITA is working with experts in the training field to ensure that its official accreditation will meet the standards of the Property Practitioner’s law.

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.
