News Home Inspectors Can Use: September 2013 Edition

September and October are jam-packed with events to get you educated and slammed with new work contacts. Here’s what’s going on in the future of home inspection:

* There are so many real estate conferences going on over the next two months, we don’t have space to list them here. Luckily we don’t have to. The Real Estate Intelligence Report has an extensive list of state realtor conferences happening throughout the nation. Head on over if you’re searching for state-specific realtor conferences or save your pennies to attend the National Association of Realtors Conference from November 6 through 11 in San Francisco. Hillary Clinton is this year’s featured speaker.

* Get ready. The Southeastern Home Inspectors Conference promises classes ranging from Plumbing Hazards to Report Writing and Risk Management. Kicking off September 13 through 15 in Duluth, Georgia, the Conference has a schedule packed with a wide range of inspection workshops and 25 exhibitors.

* If you’re in (or trying to break into) the home remodeling biz, mark your calendars for October 16 through 18 and start looking for airfare to Chicago. The Remodeling Show national trade expo covers everything from building design to project management and provides an excellent opportunity for home inspectors to connect with those in the remodeling biz. A full schedule of NAHB courses is available here. Step right this way to register.

* Clear your calendars for October. The 2013 Las Vegas Inspection Conference is slated for October 20 through 24 in Sin City. Environmental issues, infrared, pool-spa inspections, water heaters, roofing—nothing is off the table here.
