About the American Society of Home Inspectors

Established in 1976, ASHI is the oldest and most respected national professional organization of home inspectors in North America. We are a not-for-profit organization and our membership consists of nearly 6,000 individual home inspectors representing solely owned, franchise and multi-inspector companies.

 

What is a Business or Home Inspection?

A home or building inspection is an objective examination of the condition of the visible and accessible components of a home or building. Homebuyers entering the marketplace view inspections as a way to gain valuable information about the biggest purchase of their lifetime. It helps them to determine whether there are any major defects or system inadequacies on the residential property before they buy, and it minimizes any unpleasant surprises or significant financial burdens later on.

Home inspectors do not point out every small problem or defect in a home or residential property. Minor or cosmetic flaws, for example, should be apparent without the aid of a professional. The inspection also should not be confused with an appraisal, a municipal code inspection or a guarantee of any kind.
