Buyer’s Pre-purchase / Pre-existing Home Inspection

The most common of all the home inspections that we are asked to complete, a buyer’s Pre-purchase / Pre-existing home inspection and is performed as part of a real estate purchase.  It is conducted adhering to standards published by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC). The goal of the inspection is to provide a report of all observable issues found in a home. This inspection is intended to provide status information so that the buyer can make a more informed decision.
