Generally speaking a NACHI inspector is no better or worse than an ASHI or NAHI inspector. It is the individual’s talent, professionalism, morality and intelligents that makes or breaks a home inspector.
NACHI ("Use NACHI Inspectors") is making the similar claims as ASHI makes ("Use ASHI Inspectors") time and time again.
Why would anybody think that an ASHI member is better than a NACHI member and visa versa? Same goes for NAHI members.
We should not be labled as ASHI inspectors, NACHI inspectors or NAHI inspectors. Home Inspectors may be MEMBERS of an association not INSPECTOS of an association. Doctors may belong to the AMA, but we do not call them AMA Doctors.
So lets all get on the same sheet of music and not label home inspectors.
Do not loose site of the true reasons for trade associations. They are there for us to access information that we may need to do our jobs.
ASHI has become an Inspection Company. ASHI claims that their home inspectors are the best. ASHI has no idea what the inspector is doing out on a home inspection. How does ASHI know how well there inspectors are doing? They do not.
ASHI stand for $$$$ at all costs.
Can anybody out there truly tell the consumer that NACHI member is better than an ASHI or NAHI member?
If you know how to market your company, and you have a good personality, and you are willing to continually learn, and you care about the consumer you will succeed with or without being a member of an association.
ASHI is on a Brain Washing Campaign(BWC). ASHI will try to convince you that if you are not an ASHI member than you are not a good home inspector.
NACHI is traveling in the same direction.
Stop paying ASHI extortion money and send a message.
