Yes, and many inventors have become quite skilled at doing their own patent searching. We recommend that inventors use the Google Patents, FreePatentsOnline.com, EPO, WIPO or US Patent Office website to conduct a patentable search.
If you do conduct your own searches, bear in mind that the analysis of search results can be challenging. It can sometimes be difficult to identify patentable aspects of an invention in light of similar prior art documents. In other words, a pessimistic inventor will frequently find a similar patent and despair that there is nothing patentable in their idea when in reality valuable patents can still be obtained.
You can also request that a search be done for you directly by the Strategic Inventor® team.
