What's the goal of residential inspections
The goal of any professional Real Estate inspection is to provide customers with accurate information about the condition of a property so clients can proceed knowing they just made a wise investment.
Standards of practice have been established by the Texas Real Estate Commission know as TREC for short. .
The standards set out areas that must be inspected at a minimum.
Inspectors have to do the minimum, but that shouldn't be an inspectors goal.
I believe professional home inspections should exceed the minimum standards of practice when ever possible.
