Home inspection services on the rise in Marion County

Home sales and prices have seen a resurgence in Marion County recently. The positive signs are good news to more than just homeowners and real estate agents.

Home inspection services are among the other ancillary real estate businesses that were hard hit during the financial crisis.

“We’ve seen some positive movement in the local market. Hopefully, that will continue. There are a lot of great homes out there at very good prices,” said Danny Blankenship, who owns a HomeTeam Inspections franchise that covers Marion, Citrus, Lake and Sumter counties.

In July, the median sales price for a single-family home in Marion County increased to $94,000, nearly 12 percent higher than in July 2011. The number of single-family homes available dropped to 3,368, down 21.4 percent compared with the same month a year ago.

Ken Wilson, who owns a Pillar to Post home inspection franchise in Ocala, also has seen business improve a bit, but he also sees a growing number of buyers routinely skipping the home inspection.
