Today’s Throwback Thursday Tidbit:

1980s: The first known home inspection company, Home Equity Loss Protection Services, was incorporated in the 1980s. Christopher Nolan, an investor of distressed real estate (then a nationally recognized real estate expert and speaker for Lowry Seminars), realized a need to have skilled professionals inspect key areas of the home prior to his purchases in order to mitigate the risk of his investments. Thus, he created a business (H.E.L.P) to do so.
