A Buyer’s Home Inspection is obtained by the buyer during the option period. The Inspection Report is often used as a negotiating tool to get the sellers to make needed repairs or to reduce the price.
When performing a Buyer’s Inspection, we look at everything inside and out:
** Outside the home we check the foundation, exterior walls, roof, driveway, sprinkler system and deck.
** Inside the home we examine the walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows. We measure the foundation from the inside to determine how level it is and use a moisture meter around windows and doors to check for water intrusion.
** The heating, air-conditioning, plumbing, and electrical systems will all be examined to ensure that they function as intended. We use a circuit analyzer to check all accessible electrical outlets.
** Bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms receive a thorough check, along with the attic.
** We also make sure that all of your appliances are working correctly.
** In addition, the fireplace, electrical panel, water heater, and even the doorbell are checked.
** We do an infrared scan of the entire house.
All buyer’s inspections meet and exceed the standards of practice defined by the Texas Real Estate Commission.
