  • 5. F u l bridges… Building bridges…. l C i r c l e Although there is evidence of home inspections as far back H as the mid-1940s, the first home inspector association wasn’t o founded until thirty years later. In 1976, in California, the first state m association was founded, and the first national association was e founded with its headquarters in Ohio. I n The mere fact that two associations were founded at the same s p time was a precursor to the fragmentation of the home inspection e industry. Since 1976, state and national home inspector associations c t have come and gone, with state associations in almost every state, i o and seven national associations. Most of them offer few benefits to n s their members and few services to the public, and none of them have had the impact on the industry and the public like that of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI).

  • 6. F u l bridges… Building bridges…. l C i r c l e NACHI was founded in 1990 and seemed to be “just H another” trade association until August 2002. At that time, NACHI o created what has become one of the world’s most active Internet m sites, registering over 16 million hits each month. Knowledge is e power, and NACHI succeeded in bringing real estate and home I n inspection knowledge to home inspectors, Realtors, and the public. s p With almost 10,000 members, NACHI is now the world’s e largest home inspector association, with three times as many c t members as the second largest. NACHI is also one of the world’s i o largest trade associations in any industry. n s Home Inspectors Click or hit Page Down to continue.
  • 7. F u l bridges… Building bridges…. l C i r c l e NACHI has created the home inspection industry’s largest H and most active Internet Message Board. While NACHI members o are the best home inspectors in the industry, even they don’t know m everything. However, when they come across something that e puzzles them, they can go to the Message Board, post a question or I n picture, and have dozens of answers within hours, sometimes s p within minutes. NACHI is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, e including all major holidays and sporting events, so Clients of c t NACHI members never have to wait for answers about the oldest i o or newest technology or construction methods. n s Most of the NACHI Message Board is also open to the public, so anyone can register and post a question and picture, and get answers from the most knowledgeable people in the home inspection industry. Simply go to www.nachi.org and click on Message Board. Home Inspectors Click or hit Page Down to continue.

H Prospective members must demonstrate knowledge about o real estate, construction practices, and home inspections, m as well as knowledge about NACHI’s Standards of Practice e and Code of Ethics. I n NACHI also requires its members to complete 24 hours s p of continuing education each year. While many trade associations e leave it up to their members to educate themselves, NACHI is c t leading the way in building bridges to help its members become i o better educated, sometimes even before they do their first n s inspection! NACHI has the best online education system in the industry, with roofing, electrical, and structural courses, and many more in development.
