WHY ARE ARIZONA HOME INSPECTIONS SO EXPENSIVE?
Whether you're an Arizona Home Inspector or an AZ homeowner/buyer who plans to have a home inspection in the future, you should be OUTRAGED at the INCOMPETENCY taking place at an Arizona government agency called the Board of Technical Registration (BTR). The AZ BTR is the agency which licenses and regulates Home Inspectors in Arizona.
Certain professionals, such as home inspectors, need to be regulated in order to protect consumers. However, INEFFICIENT and INCOMPETENT government regulatory agencies do not protect the public's interest. In fact, INEFFICIENT and INCOMPETENT government regulatory agencies do just the opposite because they increase the cost of doing business. And business owners will almost always pass this cost on to the consumer. Consequently, the very consumers these agencies pretend to protect are the ones who are most hurt by government incompetence and/or corruption.
Arizona real estate prices are already inflated, and the AZ real estate market is already slower than normal. So obviously, higher costs for real estate related services, such as home inspections, will only worsen the situation for both AZ homebuyers and AZ real estate professionals alike.
