Consumer Information

Buying a home may be the biggest investment you will make, and choosing the right inspector can be a challenging task. Remember that the purpose of an inspection is to inform and educate you about the condition of the house before you make a financial commitment that could be life-changing.

You can trust your NSHI-certified inspector to have an allegience to you alone. NSHI inspectors will not pay fees to realtors or hide conflicts of interest that could affect their clients in any way. Futhermore, in order to apply for membership NSHI inspectors are required to have already completed educational requirements or have home inspection experience.

NSHI is about knowledge, ethics, and trust. NSHI-certified inspectors will perform a knowledgable analysis of the home's major systems using national standards of practice that will provide vital information you
need to know before you buy. Your interests will always come first and your NSHI home inspector will not provide the results of your home inspection to other parties without permission.
