We are Independent Home Inspectors, certified though ASHI, interNACHIand other professional and related associations. It is very important to know that we are highly revered, recommended and more important, MOST TRUSTEDthroughout the Professional Home Inspection Industry… and very soon, all New Mexico Home Inspectors will be required to have a state license, which AHI is in full agreement of this pending legislation to protect the public welfare at large.
Do prospective homebuyers have the right to use an inspector of their own choosing?
Yes! But, understand…
We work with many real estate brokers in a cooperative manner, not only to assist our clients, usually the “Buyer,” but indirectly for the “Seller” too; to create a smooth transition from the offer to the closing. If anyone tells you to use the Inspector of their choosing that you have taken the time to research on your own, there shouldn’t be any interference whatsoever. If not, or if one insists that you should use one of their "recommended" or "approved" inspector, you should be suspicious of that policy.
Most real estate brokers work hard too, and will encourage a smooth transition of the entire selection process. Keep in mind, the home inspector you're paying for is working for your best interest.
To avoid any conflicts of interest or liability, ethical Real Estate Brokers provide their clients, the “homebuyer,” with a comprehensive list of the local, qualified and Certified Home Inspectors; and thereby they do not offer unsolicited opinions or show any favoritism to control the deal at hand.
It’s the job of an Independent Inspectorto give their clients the very best evaluation on any Inspection and to protect their client’s interest with the real estate transaction.

ActiveHomeInspections will soon be offering Drone Technology to better enhance our inspections where difficult situations are encountered; such as high pitched roofs, impossible to climb without a 30-foot ladder that’s not in our toolbox or high pitch roofs that are too steep of foot.
Our new Phantom Drone can easily fly over the inspected house to see every aspect of a roof and its components and take a video or still photographs that will be included in the Report.
Drones can also fly over large scale properties where walking would take too long and look for any obstructions and/ or identify drainage problems.
The Phantom Drone is not a toy or a gimmick, but rather it’s a very useful tool to offer our clients, upon special request or recommendation.Pricing will be separately charged due to the extra time within the inspection field to carry out this unique and expert service.
Thermal Imaging is a valuable tool that can have a significant impact on troubleshooting and Home Inspection productivity, as well as the bottom line, for Moisture, Energy Lost, HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical and most Building applications.
Thermal imaging is a method of improving visibility of objects in a dark environment by detecting the objects' infrared radiation and creating an image based on that information.
Here's a brief explanation of how thermal imaging works: All objects emit infrared energy (heat) as a function of their temperature. The infrared energy emitted by an object is known as its heat signature. In general, the hotter an object is, the more radiation it emits. A thermal imager (also known as a thermal camera) is essentially a heat sensor that is capable of detecting tiny differences in temperature.
The device collects the infrared radiation from objects in the scene and creates an electronic image based on information about the temperature differences. Because objects are rarely precisely the same temperature as other objects around them, a thermal camera can detect them and they will appear as distinct in a thermal image.
Mold investigation is one of our chief specialties and we have a proven reputation and track record as Certified Mold Inspectors throughout the state of New Mexico and Colorado to test for mold spores and detect any mold growth.
