Episode 71 Wally Conway – The Case for Preinspections

Wally Conway
Wally Conway

In this podcast Wally Conway makes the case for the Pre-listing home inspection.  We at Home Inspection Carolina and Ask the Charlotte Inspector recommend Wally’s Book; The Happy Home Inspector.

Biography – Prior to presiding over one of the largest home inspection companies in North America, Wally was a Naval Academy graduate and is a retired Navy pilot. With a blend of experiences as a business owner, master marketer, contractor, renovator, investor, TV and radio host, and master home inspector, Wally believes “if you’re not having fun doing your thing, you’re either doing the wrong thing, or your thing wrong!”

As a respected expert in the discovery, disclosure, and documentation of residential concerns, Wally has authored and instructs numerous courses approved by the Florida Real Estate Commission for the Continuing Education of Real Estate Licensees. As a respected entrepreneur and marketing mogul, Wally serves as a respected consultant to a broad range of businesses. The underlying theme to Wally’s approach to business growth and development is that beneath every business expense lies a potential profit center. Drawing from his own rapid business growth, Wally now shows companies how to grow from “Me to We”.

Believing that entertainment is a vital element in education, Wally continues to hone his presence and presentation skills. He has been a featured inspector on the HGTV series “House Detective” as well as a co-host on the DIY series “Finders Fixers”, hosts a weekly radio show called “The Home and Garden Show” (WOKV 104.5 FM), and speaks regularly, having delivered over 627presentations to real estate professionals, inspectors, builders, buyers, and other business owners. He is also a frequent contributor to an assortment of media and corporate training programs.

In order to maintain the highest level of education, The Home Exam inspectors are required to attain a minimum of 20 hours of training annually. The Home Exam inspectors have been trained by Inspection Training Associates (ITA) and have passed the National Inspectors Exam. ITA is nationally recognized by ASHI, the largest home inspection association in the United States

Honesty, justice, and courtesy form a moral philosophy which, associated with mutual interest among people, constitutes the foundation of ethics. The members should recognize such a standard, not in passive observance, but as a set of dynamic principles guiding their conduct. It is their duty to practice the profession according to this code of ethics.

As the keystone of professional conduct is integrity, the Members will discharge their duties with fidelity to the public, their clients, and with fairness and impartiality to all. They should uphold the honor and dignity of their profession and avoid association with any enterprise of questionable character, or apparent conflict of interest.

1. The member will express an opinion only when it is based on practical experience and honest conviction.

2. The member will always act in good faith toward each client.

3. The member will not disclose any information concerning the results of the inspection without the approval of the clients or their representatives.

4. The member will not accept compensation, financial or otherwise, from more than one interested party for the same service without the consent of all interested parties.

5. The member will not accept nor offer commissions or allowances, directly or indirectly, from other parties dealing with their client in connection with work for which the member is responsible.

6. The member will promptly disclose to his or her client any interest in a business which may affect the client. The member will not allow an interest in any business to affect the quality of the results of their inspection work which they may be called upon to perform. The inspection work may not be used as a vehicle by the inspector to deliberately obtain work in another field.

7. An inspector shall make every effort to uphold, maintain, and improve the professional integrity, reputation, and practice of the home inspection profession. He or she will report all such relevant information, including violations of this Code by other members, to the Association for possible remedial action.
