I am the only ASHI Certified Inspector in the Area

Have you noticed that I am the only ASHI Certified Inspector in the area.  That is because getting ASHI Certified is not easy or automatic, like some of the certification 'mills' in this industry.  ASHI is the only association for home inspectors accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies.  This allows certified inspectors to use the ACI acronym after your name There are no federal laws governing home inspectors. We are regulated only by the individual states. Since the laws vary from state to state – and some states don’t even have home inspection regulations (Michigan being one of them) – how can you be sure that your inspector is qualified, experienced, and trustworthy? One way is through home inspector associations. BEWARE - Many associations succeed because they offer the opportunity to purchase the illusion of competence for only $300 or so ... and there is no bottom to the barrel of people who are looking for an easy way to make lots of money. The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) won’t lower its Standards or alter its Mission to take advantage of this infinite vessel of people who want to make a 'quick buck'. ASHI grants membership to people who have shown at least some level of competence by completing 250 fee- paid inspections; pass two exams - one nationally recognized and proctored; the other on our Code of Ethics; have our reports verified for content to the Standards and Code of Ethics; and be able to provide proof of yearly continuing education. It is certainly preferable to the alternative that allows anyone with about $300 and a friend who can pass a simple un-timed, non-proctored on-line test to become a “certified” inspector.  ASHI’s refusal to abandon its high standards has provided opportunities to people who have no standards. As a member of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), you can be assured that not only am I qualified, but I also adhere to the association’s Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. ASHI is the most well respected association for home inspectors.  ASHI is where you are most likely to find a competent inspector who is looking after your best interest. You can find more information about ASHI at their website, ashi.org.
