Do not let cost be a factor in deciding whether or not to have a home inspection or in the selection of your home inspector. A home purchase can be one of your largest life investments and the sense security and knowledge gained from an inspection is more that worth the cost. Low priced inspections may not be your best decision and are often low priced for a reason that may cost you in the future.
Use an inspector’s qualifications, years of experience, training, certifications and licensing as a guide.
What Does a Home Inspection Include?
A Texas home inspection will include the condition of the home’s HVAC system; visual surveys of plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; as well the foundation.
Can a House Fail a Home Inspection?
No. A professional home inspection is Texas is a visual survey of the current condition of a house. It is not an appraisal or a municipal code inspection. A Texas home inspector does not pass or fail a house, but rather visually describes its physical condition and indicates what components and systems may need major repair or replacement. Texas Inspectors are required to use a standardized form and follow standards of practice established by The Texas Real Estate Commission to provide you with a consistent, quality evaluation of the home you are considering for purchase.
What If The Report Reveals Deficiencies with the Home I Want to Buy?
There are not perfect homes. If the inspection identifies deficiencies, it doesn’t mean you should or shouldn’t buy the house, only that you now have better knowledge regarding the structure. Your real estate agent is a good resource for dealing with these issues and can advise you on how to deal with deficiencies revealed in the inspection.
Do I Need an Inspection for a New Home.
Yes, it is our experience that home builders in Texas strive to build quality structures, but we consistently find deficiencies in the new built homes we inspect.
