Kirk Bingenheimer of B-Sure Inspections LLC, a local firm which conducts pre-purchase home inspections, has just been accepted as an ASHI Certified Inspector within the American Society of Home Inspectors®.
The American Society of Home Inspectors®, founded in 1976, is the oldest, largest, and most respected international professional organization of independent home inspectors in North America. Its Standards of Practice and strict Code of Ethics are benchmarks of professional performance in the field.
To become an ASHI Certified Inspector an inspector must meet rigorous professional and technical requirements, including the successful completion of two comprehensive exams. In addition, he or she must perform at least 250 fee-paid home inspections that meet or exceed the ASHI Standards of Practice.
Once admitted to ASHI, inspectors must comply with the Society’s Bylaws and Code of Ethics, including a requirement to obtain continuing education credits every year. Members are not allowed to actively engage in real estate sales or to have a professional interest in the sale or maintenance of any property they inspect.
Real Estate professionals and government housing officials recommend that all homebuyers have their prospective property examined by an independent home inspector before the final purchase commitment. These experts recognize that ASHI membership is assurance of an inspector’s competence and professionalism.
