Have Questions? We Have Answers.

Why do I need a home inspection?
To protect your investment. The professional inspector evaluates the mechanical and structural components of the property to determine if they are in good order. The inspection will include notation of problems, usually minor, which the buyer/seller can opt to have repaired and any major problems, which should be repaired. But, there is no law requiring repairs to be made.

Why is it important to use a licensed inspector?
An inspector licensed by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) is trained and qualified to adhere to the guidelines set forth by TREC. TREC promotes excellence within the profession by establishing and maintaining the highest standards and ethics.

What does a general home inspection cover?

The Structural Inspection:

• Foundation

• Walls (Interior & Exterior)

What is not covered by a general inspection?
Termite inspections, pool and spa inspection and well and septic systems. These items require a specialized inspector. Most home inspections are limited visual inspections there is little disassembly of equipment. Tested mechanical items are run in normal operating modes, and there is no prediction of expected life of any system.

Do I need to be at the inspection?
Yes, if possible. Homeowners usually have a number of questions and the inspector may relay general information or knowledge from experience that may not be included in the report.

What do I do to prepare for an inspection?
The buyer should decide on an inspector, set an appointment, and tell the real estate agent (or seller) when the home needs to be opened for inspection. Typical inspections take from 2-4 hours. If the home is vacant, it is important that all utilities, such as electricity, gas, and water, are turned on. Otherwise the inspector cannot check some of the systems in the home.
