Realtors: is your home inspector really qualified?
Licensing of home inspectors only sets a minimum standard. Much like being up to code, any less
would be illegal. Imaginary people, children, psychics (who claim to “sense” if a house is OK) and even
pets can be home inspectors. That is why NACHI front-ends its membership requirements. NACHI turn
down more than half the inspectors who want to join because they can’t pass our exam orfulfill our
Our inspectors have to meet all of our membership requirements and pass our exam before being
accepted into NACHI. We don’t offer associate or candidate memberships (junior memberships for
inspectors who have not met the requirements).

Don’t settle for using or recommending a candidate or associate of any association – your clients will
appreciate that you took the time to find them a truly qualified professional to perform their home
