Someone out there is going to great effort and expense to proliferate this website throughout the real estate industry.

And don't rely on most home inspection associations that have no entrance requirements. Blind people, children, psychics (who claim to "sense" if a house is ok) and even pets have joined other associations.


Nick, the rest looks great but, speaking only for myself, I really dislike this negative campaigning and would like to see NACHI rise above it.

My two cents...

I agree. I am sure most of our members do as well. Well, I would like to think they do.

We have been trying that since the blind man started here in Florida. I think he was a product of the Clemons experience.

We have the same feelings about the …blind, pets blurb …on the Canadian Inspectors thread.

Buying a home is probably the most expensive purchase you'll ever make. This is no time to shop for a cheap inspection. The cost of a home inspection is very small relative to the home being inspected. The additional cost of hiring a certified inspector is almost insignificant. As a homebuyer, you've recently been crunching the numbers, negotiating offers, adding up closing costs, shopping for mortgages, and trying to get the best deals. Don't stop now. Don't let your real estate agent, a patty-cake inspector, or anyone else talk you into skimping here.

NACHI is the only association that front-ends its membership requirements. NACHI turns down more than 1/2 the inspectors who want to join because they can't fulfill the membership requirements.

NACHI certified inspectors perform the best inspections by far. NACHI certified inspectors earn their fees many times over. They do more, they deserve more, and yes they generally charge a little more. Do yourself a favor...and pay a little more for the quality inspection you deserve.


OK...since you asked.

What is a "patty-cake inspector"? Let's just leave that out. Also see my other add-on for this.

"NACHI is the only association that front-ends its membership requirements." First...what is NACHI? Second..."front-ends" probably won't mean much to the uninitiated.

"NACHI certified inspectors perform the best inspections by far." I don't mind some exageration, but that's a stretch. See my suggested wording below.

The same section with suggested changes.

Don't let your real estate agent or anyone else talk you into skimping on your inspector. The money spent on a good and thorough inspection is often recouped many times over.

The National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI) is the only association that requires testing before achieving membership. NACHI turns down more than half of the applicants because they are unable to fulfill the requirements.

NACHI certified inspectors perform only the best inspections. NACHI certified inspectors earn their fees many times over. They do more, they deserve more, and yes they generally charge a little more. Do yourself a favor...and pay a little more for the quality inspection you deserve.

I'm not much on "patty cake" either, and I would like to see price mentioned.

Something like: Don't let your real estate agent or anyone else talk you into hiring a poorly trained or low priced home inspector. The money spent on an inspector who performs a thorough home inspection is often recouped many times over.

Just a thought today after competing with the $175 inspectors.
