HOME BUYERS, SELLERS, & OWNERS
Buying a home may seem like an endless series of critical and important decisions. When you finally find that house that is right for you, hiring a home inspector to educate you about the condition of your new home is standard and a wise decision. Even newly constructed homes can have defects and an inspection is critical to the buying process.
Having an inspection on your current home whether you plan to sell or are just interested in the condition can be a smart decision. Knowing the condition of your home will give you more information about required repairs and deferred maintenance.
So Why An ASHI Inspector?
Montana does not require home inspectors to have a license. This means you must take vetting a qualified inspector into your own hands.
Choosing an ASHI inspector means choosing someone you can trust to objectively and accurately inspect the condition of the home with the client in mind. ASHI holds its inspectors to the highest standards in the industry. Members must complete continuing education credits (CEs) in order to stay up to date on new construction methods, materials and defects. Inspectors are held to the ASHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics that sets your ASHI inspector apart from others in the industry.
Certified inspectors have even more qualifications with a minimum of 250 inspections (most have many more) and have passed the National Home Insection Exam (NHIE).
Professional realtors and real estate agents have referred ASHI inspectors for many years. They know that addressing house defects up front helps eliminate potential problems that increase the risk of liability disputes.
Whether you are an agent, a broker, lender, appraiser, builder or real estate attorney, your customers often look to you for recommendations on who they should hire to conduct the home inspection. Rely on ASHI as your qualified resource for professional home inspectors as well as for information on all the elements of a professional home inspection. You can trust that ASHI inspectors will deliver exceptional service and expert technical knowledge, enabling your customers to make informed decisions about the sale or purchase of a home, thus helping you in your role as a trusted resource. After all, it's your reputation that's on the line.
