What is covered by a home inspection?

  spacer.gif
 
Home Sweet Home Inspections reports on the following aspects of a home:
  • Foundation
  • Grading & Drainage
  • Roof Covering
  • Roof Structure & Attic
  • Walls & Ceilings
  • Doors & Windows
  • Fireplace & Chimney
  • Porches, Decks & Carports
  • Heating & Air Conditioning
  • Electrical System
  • Plumbing System
  • Appliances
  • Garage Door Opener
  • Optional Systems (outbuildings, outdoor cooking equipment, water wells, etc.)
  • Septic Systems*
*The septic inspection is an above ground Level 1 inspection. This means that I locate the septic tanks, observe the ground above the tanks to determine if ground is dry and that no foul odor is detected. This is what the Texas Real Estate Commission requires us as licensed inspectors to do. It is not a thorough inspection and it does not give you the buyer a great deal of information about the possibility of problems in the future, but that is what I am required to report.

What does an inspection cost and how can I justify another expense?

  spacer.gif
 
     There is a flat fee of $325 for an inspection (<2,000 square feet). For dwellings greater than 2,000 square feet, please call for pricing. I do not charge extra for additional features such as swimming pools, more than 2 bathrooms, crawl spaces, out buildings, sprinkler systems, sewer systems, etc. These items are included in the inspection fee at no extra charge. I choose to charge a flat fee because when the inspection service is finished, there are no surprises when it is time to write the check. There is an extra charge for testing water samples on private water wells. I send these samples off to a testing lab and must charge for this additional service.

     Inspections on most foreclosed homes will require an additional $100 fee.

     Payment is required at the time of the inspection unless prior agreement has been made.

     A home is most likely your single largest investment. What is more important than knowing that the conditions for your family are SAFE, SOUND, and SANITARY. In addition, having an inspection can streamline the closing process and answer important questions that your insurance or mortgage lender may require.
