The American Society of Home Inspectors
Announces Alliance with Homestore.com, Inc.
The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) announced an alliance with Homestore.com, Inc., the leading supplier of online media and technology solutions to the home and real estate industries. According to ASHI, this relationship creates a greater awareness of the importance of retaining a qualified home inspector in the home buying and selling process.
"We are thrilled to have our home inspectors listed on Homestore.com," said John Ghent, president of ASHI, the largest and most respected non-profit professional organization for home inspectors. "Homestore.com's family of Web sites attracts over 9.1 million unique visitors a month and they recognize that quality home inspections are a crucial part of the home buying process. Our agreement also provides another avenue for consumers to locate ASHI inspectors."
Under the agreement, ASHI members and candidates are provided with free listings of their name and contact information on the Homestore.com™ home services area. As a result, consumers can now locate qualified home inspectors in their neighborhood by simply entering the zip code in which they live.
"We were delighted to form an alliance with the American Society of Home Inspectors - a well respected, 25 year old trade association comprised of accredited home examination experts - to bring even more comprehensive real estate and home-related content to our consumers, " said Jeff Garrard, Vice President for Editorial Programming, Homestore.com, Inc. "Homestore.com's customers will benefit not only from quick and convenient access to qualified inspectors in their cities -- and information on their specialties and training -- but links to ASHI's site containing consumer protection and safety information, home improvement content and government and organizational resources," he added.
