Times Have Changed! Until July 1, 1998, the home inspection industry was unregulated and home inspectors were not tested for competency. No longer is this true. We are now regulated and certified by the State of Oregon, and minimum standards have been established to help assure that competent, thorough inspections will be provided to home buyers and sellers.
However, a number of the Home Inspectors here in Central Oregon decided that the minimum requirements of certification were not enough. We formed an organization that is dedicated to developing our own professionalism and promoting a better understanding of our profession in our communities.
One of COAREI’s primary objectives is to “Improve and promote the education and professionalism of Real Estate Inspectors.”
COAREI is an approved provider of state required continuing education to Home Inspectors.
OUR PROMISE TO YOU
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won't meet your inspector until our appointment. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing.
Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor our members by permitting them to inspect your new home, COAREI will guarantee that they will give you their very best effort and work. This, COAREI promises you.
