When do I need to have my home inspected?
When you are selling your home, the state of Texas does not requires you to have an inspection, but many mortgage companies do. If an inspection is done for the purchase of real estate, it must be provided on a state of Texas standardized form, and done by a state licensed inspector. We recommend the buyer be present at the time of inspection. The written report will be done at the site and many questions can be addressed on the spot.
What are the costs involved?
Inspections will vary from property to property. The old rule of “you get what you pay for” is true. Factors affecting inspection costs are size and location.
How long does an Inspection take?
Our normal inspection time is an hour to an hour and a half.
What should I look for in an inspector?
Due to the level of knowledge required, we recommend inspections only by certified applicators in the termite field with at least 5 years of experience treating termites in the North Houston area. Considering that building constructions and soil types will change from one area of Houston to another, it is important to use an inspector who is familiar with your local region.
