Should we get an inspection?

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX 1st Class 0542725

We Highly Recommend an Inspection

Let's talk about the next step once we have a fully executed contract signed by all parties.

  • Depending on the type of financing you choose, there should be either 2 or 3 separate inspections on the home you want to purchase.
  • The first should be your own personal inspection, and the second should be a professional inspector that is licensed in the State of Texas. Should you select a government loan [FHA or VA], the third inspection should come at the time of the appraisal, which to some degree amounts to a "mini-inspection".
  • Do not, however, rely on this appraisal as your only inspection of the property!
  • We cannot emphasize enough the value and necessity of an extensive home inspection by a licensed real estate inspector. It saves you money long-term!
  • Inspections are designed to disclose defects in the property that could materially affect its safety, livability, or resale value. They are not designed to disclose cosmetic deficiencies [example, an interior wall that needs paint touch up].
  • You will need to determine on your own those types of cosmetic items that will need attention: don't expect an inspection to reveal them to you.
  • Call me today for a list of local inspectors in League City, Friendswood, Clear Lake, Webster, Dickinson, Pearland, and surrounding areas, 281-948-7042.

As you can see, we are committed to supporting your home purchase every step of the way. If we can answer any questions or help you get started in the home buying process, please contact me for any reason, 281-948-7042.

Brian: The answer should always be yes unless the person is a contractor or remodeler themselves. I think it's so important I offer to reimburse all purcahsers up to $250 for a home inspection when the deal closes.
