Guarantee

As a Certified Professional Inspector® trained by InterNACHI — the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors—I’m able to offer you not just a thorough inspection and reliable report, but something that no one else in the industry does: InterNACHI’s Buy-Back Guarantee.

The terms are simple: If I miss anything on the inspection, InterNACHI will buy the home back.

Here’s the "fine print":

  • The Buy-Back Guarantee will be honored for 90 days after closing.
  • InterNACHI will pay you whatever price you paid for your home.
  • The home must be listed with a licensed real estate agent.
  • The Buy-Back Guarantee excludes homes with material defects not present at the time of the inspection, or not required to be inspected per InterNACHI’s Residential Standards of Practice, which can be read online at www.nachi.org/sop.htm
  • Material Defect Definition: Major structural defect or a defect that poses a serious safety hazard.

Rest assured that the Buy-Back Guarantee isn’t just a way for InterNACHI to spam you; they do not collect identifiable consumer data, so they can't release it or sell it. No data is ever sold or released to any third party. Your confidentiality is fully protected.

InterNACHI has already honored the Buy-Back Guarantee for several homebuyers around the country, so we know the program works.

We will create a detailed report, including color photos. Your report can be emailed to you within 24 hours of the inspection in an easily accessible format or a printed hard copy.

Once you receive your report, the report is your property – you can choose to share reports with friends and family, real estate agents, lenders, insurance companies and other interested parties.
