Answer by  patti (29325)

Foreclosure inspector is either a position within the lender's organization or a freelance position. The requirements of the position are determined by the company that is engaging the services.


Answer by  severaltimes (247)

Becoming a foreclosure inspector usually begins with a career in real estate. Experience in purchasing and evaluating the value of real estate is essential to this field. Certification is also essential and varies by state. Insurance companies and lending agents may have openings for foreclosure inspectors.

You'll need general knowledge about home construction and repair; it helps to have experience as a building contractor or insurance adjustor. Depending on where you live, you may need to take the National Home Inspector Examination and be licensed. If you meet the requirements, prepare a resume and offer your services to banks, mortgage brokers and similar companies.

This is pretty much by the numbers. You fill out the proper forms for schooling and courses. You submit for a background check. When all done apply for foreclosure jobs.

It takes several years to become certified, and there is a lot of testing involved. You have to pass Federal, state and county building code test. Your county (who licenses you) housing authority would know when/where the next testing is if you are already qualified. You do not just fill out an application and Viola! You are a Housing Inspector.
