Nonprofit Home Inspections’ Services

Buying a home can be one of the biggest investments you will make in your lifetime. As such, it is critical for you to get a professional home inspection by a Certified Home Inspector in Oregon. Our highly trained inspectors are outfitted with the most up-to-date equipment (including thermal imaging cameras) that help us identify potential problems before you buy. Armed with that knowledge, you can make better, informed decisions when purchasing a home in Portland, Oregon.
If you are preparing to put your home on the market, a seller’s home inspection can be a valuable tool in identifying potential deal breakers before getting into negotiations. As a seller, it will be much easier (and less expensive) to proactively correct problems with your house prior to listing the house for sale. While every home will have it’s own set of issues, knowing the true state of your property in advance will help you decide what needs to be addressed in order for a deal to go through properly.
Many home owners and landlords schedule annual maintenance inspections for their properties in order to help identify potential problems before they grow into major disasters. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Using our Certified Home Inspectors to inspect and evaluate your property will give you the information necessary to take corrective action if required, saving you time and money down the road.
If you are nearing the end of your 1 year warranty on a new home, it’s wise to get a warranty inspection by a Certified Home Inspector. While home owners can create their own list of issues that they feel need to be addressed, it’s wise to get help from a trained professional that can help identify some bigger issues that could end up costing you a bundle down the road. Warranty inspections by Nonprofit Home Inspections is a sound investment in the health of your new home.

Oregon Home Inspection

Frequently asked questions concerning the Oregon home inspection process.

Infrared cameras and thermal imaging is used on all of our home inspections.
Our Certified Home Inspectors generally spend 3 to 4 hours conducting a thorough inspection of your home. Because time is of the essence, we guarantee same day reports via email and are available for follow up inspections as necessary.
While NHI’s Certified Home Inspectors are also licensed General Contractors, we do not believe that it is ethical for home inspectors to offer to fix problems they find during their inspections. By limiting ourselves to only inspecting your property, we maintain our strict independence and keep only your best interests in mind. Similarly, we will never pay real estate agents for referrals or do anything that would jeopardize our client’s well being.
Nonprofit Home Inspections guarantees same day inspection reports via email to you and your real estate agent if you would like. Since you will only have a very short time frame to complete your due diligence when purchasing a home, you really should select a home inspector that will guarantee same day reports. Waiting a week or more to get your inspection results is simply unacceptable and is not in your best interest.
NHI is unique in that it is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. As one of the only nonprofit inspection companies in the United States, NHI is driven by a charitable purpose of empowering individuals to make safe, financially sound, and environmentally friendly home buying decisions.

NHI’s Oregon home inspection services are not driven by the profit motive. Our salaried inspectors do not have quotas or franchise requirements that might encourage them to take short cuts on your home inspection. In addition, with grant and community support, NHI is able to outfit and train our inspectors with the most up-to-date equipment possible including thermal imaging cameras that help detect hidden problems that a visual inspection alone would miss.

We are licensed, bonded, and insured to do home inspections anywhere in the State of Oregon. Our regular fees apply if your home is located within 25 miles of our headquarters in Portland, Oregon. We can inspect other properties further away for an additional fee (please inquire).
We conduct a comprehensive home inspection that meets and exceeds Oregon’s Standards of Practice for Certified Home Inspectors. To see a partial list of all of the components that we inspect, please review the list at the top of this page.
Becoming an Oregon home inspector is not something to be taken lightly. You will need to successfully pass a ton of approved courses, demonstrate previous experience, and pass the State of Oregon’s test for licensed home inspectors. If approved, you will need to form (or join) a business that is also licensed and insured with Oregon’s Construction Contractors Board.

NHI goes above and beyond all of the requirements for licensed home inspectors in Oregon. We only hire inspectors who have previously worked in construction. We believe that it is critical for an inspector to really know how buildings are properly built before inspecting someone else’s home. All of our Certified Home Inspectors are also licensed General Contractors in the State of Oregon and have years of experience building and remodeling properties in our shared community.

An Oregon home inspection by NHI starts at $350 based on the size of the house. Because larger and older homes take longer to inspect, the prices increase slightly based on the home’s square footage and age. A complete list of our prices is online here. Please note that all of our inspections include free thermal imaging and more. You will not find a better inspection for your investment than at Nonprofit Home Inspections.
