    I am thinking of being a in home assessor but I do know it cost alot of money to get started. I am just wondering if anyone has ventured into this and what are the pitfalls and the good things about it. Has anyone made good money-how many houses do you do per week?

    I’ve read up on that before, I’m interested (being green and all that) in doing it, but I’d like to see whats in the report before I sign up!

    And I’d be interested to see how often work comes around as well, not many people know of this scheme.

    I used to sell solar panels, I gained an interest in renewable energy from that.

    Hi

    I too have been looking into this and there are a few courses around that you can do.

    From what i can tell you have 2 options.

    Work for a company and get in the region of $70.00 per inspection or work for yourself and get around $200.00 per inspection, i guess with this option you have to generate your own leads.

    They had something in the uk before i left and they worked very well because the Goverment made you get a inspection if you were selling your home, if this becomes law here it would be a great industry to get into if not im not so sure.

    I am happy to be corrected on this

    I saw this advertised locally too. I too have an interest in sustainable homes.

    I am wondering how successful this would be in Queensland with our governments Climate Smart program. For $50 the home owner gets up to 15 free energy saving globes, water efficient shower heads, an energy meter, a 15 minute assessment and a thermometer – for air con and fridges etc.

    I got it all and installed everything – already had heaps of light bulbs and the shower heads, the energy meter was why I signed up.

    The home insulation program has also been great – we got ours done very early as I was in the process of getting quotes at the time. Has really improved the livability of our house. We didn’t use a heater once last winter.

    My thoughts for Qld anyway.
