The simple answer is that it an easy way to fullfil the 25 required inspections that an apprentice must complete prior to sitting for the Real Estate Inspector exam. My apprentice has to be ready to complete field inspections on his own by Jan. 2007. as my inspection load has almost doubled. This is a result of recent marketing efforts but that’s a discussion for another thread already started. Additionlly, I am considering raising my prices for the HomeGauge report and offering an on-site, same day, checklist report at my current rates.
If it fullfils TREC requirements, clients are satisifed with it and it makes money, I wouldn’t call it crap. I like the report Mike posted. It’ll work for my purposes with a little editing. I couldn’t view the AHIT example without downloading a bunch of crap onto my computer. Might be good stuff too.
