Why request a home inspection?
Whether you are a new buyer purchasing your first home or an investor purchasing and investment property, a thorough home inspection can empower you with information and contribute to peace of mind about the condition of the property at the time of purchase.
What is the inspection process?
A home inspection performed by a licensed professional real estate inspector ensures the home is examined to the minimum standards required by the Texas Real Estate Commission. The client requests an inspection on a specific property. Arrangements are made to view the home. The customer signs a contract with the home inspector to detail price, expectations, details of the inspection prior to work being performed. Payment is due at or before the time of the inspection. The inspection is performed and the condition of the home is examined and documented using the TREC standard form, digital photographs, and notes from the process. The inspector then reviews his notes and photographs then writes and delivers the final report. A digital copy of the report will be provided. If the customers requires a physical copy of the report please let us know.
What is inspected during the process?
A home inspection involves various systems. These include structural, electrical, HVAC, and plumbing systems, as well as appliances. The report does not cite code. It is a visual inspection of the property based on performance of each system. The inspection is not intended to determine the life expectancy of any inspected item. It is designed to determine the condition at the time of inspection. If there are limitations to what items are inspectable based of visual obstacles, safety hazards, or unavoidable obstructions those limitations will be discussed with the client and documented in the report.
How much does it cost?
We do not charge flat rates for inspections. We charge based on the square footage of the home. If you are interested in a quote please contact me. I will request information such as the specific square footage as well as the property address.
