A real estate inspector is a person who is licensed to perform an inspection of a property
that is the subject of a real estate transaction.
An inspector can work for either a buyer or seller
and is required to follow a Standards of Practice
which provides the minimum standards an inspector must follow
when inspecting a property.
TREC issues three levels of inspector licenses:

Buildings are being built faster than ever before, from site to finished structure in as little as six weeks. This makes it very important for “new build” buyers to have the work inspected at critical phases. Buildings must be constructed according to local, state and federal codes, all of which mandate the minimum standards for habitability.
It is often too late to discover problems once the framing has been covered with insulation and drywall.
New Construction Inspections Are Performed in Phases
Phase 1 – Foundation Inspection
Phase 2 – Framing Inspection (Pre-Drywall)
Phase 3 – Final Inspection Before the “Walk Through” with the Builder
