Here for your review is an updated member list of all Home Inspector Association BC (HIABC) home inspectors in your service area. This information below is provided by Helene Barton HIABC Executive Director.  

HIABC licensed inspectors are qualified to the highest standards in training, education, ethics and professionalism. 

Their association continues to work with government to improve the current regulation requirements as set by Consumer Protection BC for the home inspection industry.  HIABC does not agree with or adhere to these reduced requirements implemented by CPBC.  Members of HIABC must follow a rigorous code of ethics, report writing verification, and mandatory continued education, and our new trainee inspectors must meet considerably higher criteria for training to meet HIABC membership standards.

Are you considering making a real estate move now or in the near future?  Have you considered the consequences of following through on such a decision?  A real estate investment for many is one of the largest investments made in one’s life.  The stress and anxiety resulting from such a decision can be enough to cause regret for even the toughest contenders out there.  I know firsthand as a competitor for my first upcoming Athletic Fitness competition that going it alone would not result in the excitement and anticipation that I feel today just two days away from this event.  Had I attempted to venture on my own into this journey two months ago when first ask by my friend Sandra to train with her, I would have quickly changed my mind and quit.  Having support in both our biggest life’s decision along with even the smallest ones can be the trustiest secret to our success. ...
