Join Our Diverse Team

If you visit the websites of home inspection companies in the greater Montreal area, most of them are operated by older white men. Even when I go to home inspection industry events and look around the room, most everyone around are guys who look a lot like me, older with a lot of grey hair.

Don’t get me wrong; there is nothing wrong with being a distinguished looking gentleman, but it is clear that we need to address the issue of ethnic and sexual diversity in the home inspection industry. At Mose Home Inspection Services, we have been doing that for nearly 20 years.

When my home inspection company started growing, I was keen to look for ways to provide opportunities to anyone qualified, including immigrants. As an immigrant myself (I was born in England), it seemed natural to me to have inspectors associated with Mose that reflected the diversity of the Montreal area.

Women Inspectors

According to the National Association of REALTORS®, single female home buyers made up 17% of home sales in 2019, while single male buyers made up nine percent. I’ve learned from experience that many women would prefer to work with a female home inspector.

Carol Mose

When my daughter Carol joined the roster of inspectors we represented, it became clear to me that we were a diversified team that was way ahead of the diversity curve with respect to the rest of the industry. As a result, she is currently one of our most sought-after inspectors, it wasn’t always that way though.

When I started doing home inspections there were definitely a few strange looks from some of the male brokers. I remember this one inspection when the broker said that he did not believe that I (a woman) could know more about how to do a home inspection then he did. It was more than a little satisfying when at the end of the inspection he had to admit that I pointed out more than a few things that he would have missed.”

Carol Mose, Certified Home Inspector

There’s a huge demand for female home inspectors in our industry, and it isn’t being met. According to The American Society of Home Inspectors, just two percent of members are women. In addition, just four percent of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors are women.

If you’re a woman interested in home inspections, I encourage you to pursue that interest. And if you’re reading this and you know any women you think would be a great home inspector, please encourage them to check it out. Being a home inspector is a highly satisfying job that people rarely want to leave.

People of Colour

At Mose Home Inspection Services, we have a racially and ethnically diverse team of people who represent the various communities in the Greater Montreal area that we serve. To date, I am proud to say we have inspectors that can serve our clients in ten languages and represent most of our area’s major ethnic groups, including French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, German, Persian, Mandarin and Russian, among others.

Young People

It is also tough to find young people entering the home inspection industry. For example, a 2017 survey by the Examination Board of Professional Home Inspectors (Figure 1) found that less than 22% of U.S. home inspectors (the Canadian numbers are pretty much the same) were under 45 years of age.

Scott Race
Scott Race – Certificated Inspector

At Mose, the average age of our inspectors is a lot lower. In addition, we have recently added Scott Race to the team; he is 25 years old and is a college graduate, looking forward to a long and prosperous career in the home inspection trade.

There are a ton of older home inspectors in this business who are at or near retirement age, and someone will need to fill those positions. This industry is a great opportunity for people young and young of heart and from every background who enjoy learning how homes and buildings work and who like the idea of getting out and meeting new people and not being chained to a desk and a computer.

It is my hope that after reading this that you or someone you know may be interested in pursuing an exciting and lucrative career in the home inspection industry here in the greater Montreal area. At Mose Home Inspection Services we believe in diversity and equality and continuing to build the best team of certified home inspectors to serve our clients.

Amazing experience with Carol Mose who helped me with a pre-purchase inspection! She was very approachable and... observant, and informed me of all her first impressions on-site. This gave me greater understanding of any conditions as I was able to ask any quick questions on the spot. Her reports are the most thorough that I've seen and include diagrams to help explain what any physical signs mean and potential consequences. Could not have asked for a better inspector!read more

Carol was wonderful to work with for our pre-purchase inspection. She was professional, thorough and communicative,... taking the time to explain her findings as we went through the house. After the inspection, we felt we had clear knowledge of the condition of the house (both pros and cons), allowing us to move forward with the purchase with confidence. Highly recommend!read more

I had a great experience with Mose home inspection. My husband and I are first time homebuyers and so had a ton of... questions about the process. Everyone we talked with was really informative and helpful. Michael was our inspector and was phenomenal. The inspection was very thorough and he explained everything in detail with realistic next steps for us to take. We came out of the inspection feeling really informed. Plus, he is just an absolute delight! He had very contagious enthusiasm and made the inspection a really positive experience. Would highly recommend!read more

Michael was amazing. He took the time to explain to us what’s really important and the reasoning behind it. We’re not... very handy nor savvy when it comes to home construction so we really appreciate him taking the time to explain to us all aspects of the inspection.
