Is your home inspector blind?

Is your home inspector blind?  If he's not a member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), he might just be!

Other home inspection associations have no entrance examination.  Blind people, children, psychics (who claim to "sense" if a house is ok) and even pets have joined other associations.  InterNACHI is the only association with an entrance examination.  We turn down more than 1/2 the inspectors who want to join because they can't pass our exam. 

InterNACHI inspectors:

  • Have to pass InterNACHI's Online Inspector Examination. (This is a general, not association-specific exam).
  • Have to pass InterNACHI's Online Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics Examination (This is a new, separate, open book, InterNACHI-specific exam coming in September 2004 testing only standards and ethics knowledge.).
  • Have access to InterNACHI's free library for improving their inspection skills.
  • Have access to InterNACHI's message board for exchanging information and tips.
  • Have access to InterNACHI's What's New section so they can keep up with the industry.
  • Have access to Dear InterNACHI for detailed advice.
  • Have access to a time-tested Agreement which keeps them (and you) away from lawsuits.
  • Have access to InterNACHI's Report Review/Mentoring service.
  • Have access to InterNACHI's free online inspection courses.
  • Have to sign an affidavit.
  • Have to carry E&O insurance (if their state requires it).
  • Have to abide by InterNACHI's Standards of Practice.
  • Have to abide by InterNACHI's Code of Ethics.
  • Have to fulfill InterNACHI's Continuing Education requirements.

So the next time you need to refer your clients to home inspectors, make sure they are members of InterNACHI.  InterNACHI, America's elite home inspection association.
