NACHI Certified?

Check this guy out!

Run through inspection? Is he actually running?

Experienced home renovator?

190 bucks all the way up to 2000 sq…Wow!

Good to see you Chuck!

I have one of those in my neighborhood too. $179 any size home.

I wish him luck!

I really liked your guys “paperless” report and pricing. I wouldn’t hire this kind of inspector to inspect my shed! :roll:

Ah YES!!!
I am sure he will get lots of business I certainly don’t want.
People here in New Mexico are finally getting the hint that they will get what they pay for.

NOW all we have to do is educate the Agents:twisted:

BTW= I am speaking this Saturday at a new Real Estate Agency. The Senior agent wants the agents to use NACHI Inspectors
wish me luck!!

Hmmmmmm,47.50 per hr.Gross

Then he waves a $60 fee for mold testing! From “Royal Joke” Oops! “Royal Oak” MI. A long time member of NACHI 08-12-04 if I am reading his member number correctly. I wonder when the last time he has done any continuing education? I bet he has never been to a chapter meeting.

I thought paperless inspections were against the nachi sop?

Good to hear from you also Jeff.

190 up to 2000 sq? I won’t go into details just yet, but I have had to follow up on one of his inspections. Buyer wanted a second opinion, and he got one from me.

19 Months in the Industry is a Long Time Professional???

Actually the length of inspection experience can be misleading in terms of knowledge, work ethic and ability to find problems. The main advantage for new inspectors that want to excel is the vast quantity of free information and training on the internet. It takes a few thousand hours of reading and research to absorb it all but it can be done by some.

I have many clients that refuse to use older inspectors because they say that they “just miss too much”. One is a retired RE agent.

Just like all other professionals some Hi’s are just good at the job even in their first year and some take several years to get there.


1. Definitions and Scope

1.1. A Home inspection is a non-invasive visual examination of a residential dwelling, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify observed material defects within specific components of said dwelling. Components may include any combination of mechanical, structural, electrical, plumbing, or other essential systems or portions of the home, as identified and agreed to by the Client and Inspector, prior to the inspection process.
[INDENT]I. A home inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling. The inspection is based on observation of the visible and apparent condition of the structure and its components on the date of the inspection and not the prediction of future conditions.
II. A home inspection will not reveal every concern that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the day of the inspection.
1.2. A Material defect is a condition with a residential real property or any portion of it that would have a significant adverse impact on the value of the real property or that involves an unreasonable risk to people on the property. The fact that a structural element, system or subsystem is near, at or beyond the end of the normal useful life of such a structural element, system or subsystem is not by itself a material defect.

1.3. **An Inspection report shall describe and identify in written format **the inspected systems, structures, and components of the dwelling and shall identify material defects observed. Inspection reports may contain recommendations regarding conditions reported or recommendations for correction, monitoring or further evaluation by professionals, but this is not required.



When are you comming back???

Looks like Russell will get a “letter” now…

Does that mean paperless reports are against the NACHI SOP? I’ve been doing paperless reports since last August 1 via my Interactive Report System.

I did have a transaction coordinator call me the other day asking for a printed copy. I told her a printed copy could be billions and billions of pages. She sounded confused. I had to explain what “interactive” meant. I finally told her that all she had to do was make a copy of the disk. That seemed to befuddle her more, so I asked her what she was trying to do, to which she replied that she needed to send the problems to an insurance company. “Just print Section 4 for them. That’s the Areas of Concern.” So then I had to talk her through the Interactive Report System to get her to Section 4. And she claims she was a transaction coordinator for lots of Realtors, yet she doesn’t know how to use a CD. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

Never. I still use the non member benefits, they have more then enough value…and it’s free!

BTW, Nick did send me the remainder of my membership money + the extra 20 bucks.

The intent of the SOP was to prevent verbal inspections. Clearly this is available through this inspection company and is in clear violation of your SOP’s.

I find that here a lot! One of the things I did in my other life is build websites and put together networks for small businesses, I keep getting calls from their so called Techs because they can’t figure out simple things like setting up email in Outlook. then they complain when I charge them 50 dollars an hour to teach them how to do it ( should be 100 an hour but I digress) anyway I can’t figure out how people put all this training down on their resumes and they can’t do the simple stuff oh well like it was said earlier in this post we have a wealth of information on the website and the internet all we have to do is use it :shock:


My WALK inspection is a verbal inspection.

Move over, Chuck. I might be joining you on the outside if the powers-that-be, the powers-that-wanna-be, or the crayola guys find out. :mrgreen:
