A home inspection is the first step towards understanding the condition of the home that you are buying or selling. It is a visual examination and basic performance evaluation of the major structure, systems, and components that are visible and safely accessible. "To use a medical analogy, think of a home inspection as a general check-up and not a comprehensive, x-ray exam." Following the inspection, you will be given a complete home inspection report. The report will include high-quality photos, videos, notes, and other general information about the home and our findings.
Buying a home is typically one of, if not, the largest investment you will ever make. That said, it is important to know the condition of your investment. The professionally licensed inspector can discover and document defects that may or may not be obvious to you as a prospective buyer. Such defects can range from simple replacements or repairs to severe damage, safety, and health concerns. Additionally, most mortgage companies require a home inspection to be completed before approving the home loan.
Yes, we encourage all of our clients to attend the inspection at some capacity. Most people elect to attend near the end of the inspection to discuss the findings and contents of the inspection report. You are welcome to attend as much of the inspection as you would like. If you are unable to attend the inspection, you can also ask your agent to fill in for you or you can choose to wait for the report to be published. As always, you are welcome to contact us with any questions as we are more than happy to assist.
On the left side of the page, we have included an infographic that explains exactly what is included in each home inspection. If you would like a better understanding of what is included and excluded in a home inspection, please refer to the Texas Real Estate Commission SOP. Also, as a courtesy to our clients, we offer both Thermal Imaging and Irrigation System Inspections for free with all of our home inspections. Read more about the benefits of thermography here.
