What to Expect

Having a home inspection is the best way to avoid unpleasant surprises after closing. I will assess your potential home for safety concerns, operational and structural deficiencies. The inspection will give you the details regarding the condition of the home and will reveal the need for replacement or repair of certain items.  My inspection is performed according to the Texas Real Estate Commission's Standards of Practice.
