It is a smart decision.
A home inspection helps to identify problems in the house that may cost you money or be a safety hazard. Many of these problems will not be visible to you as you tour the house with your realtor. The inspector will take their flashlight and tools into the recesses of the house. Places you probably avoided on the tour like the attic and inside other accessible panels and covers. A professional home inspector has the knowledge and training to identify potential "money–pit" problems and point out the important maintenance items so you can also keep the home in good shape.

What about the inspection and the report?
Truth be told, a home cannot fail an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision. Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection should take no more than 3 hours. It is recommended to accompany your inspector during the consultation, so that you will have visual reinforcement of your written report.
The inspection will take approximately 2 to 3 hours. The home inspection report will be sent (via email) the same day before 6 pm
(if inspection is done in the morning)
A pre-inspection agreement will be sent to the buyer via email that can electronically be signed on your smartphone or computer, no need to print out. This pre-inspection agreement is intended to give you an overview of the scope of the inspection, inspection cost, time, and date.
We encourage client (buyer/seller) to carefully review and sign the pre-inspection agreement.
Note: the inspection cannot be performed if pre-inspection agreement is not signed.
Both, the buyer, and the Realtor are invited to attend the property inspection (not required)
*Be there 30 to 45 minutes before inspections ends.
The Great State of Texas does not require inspectors to provide re-inspection services. See reference below:
(Texas Standards of Practice (SOP) - Section 535-227-G 15)
At Almana Home Inspections, we understand the importance of a good inspection at the first time the house is inspected, we also understand that sometimes reported deficiencies do not get properly repaired, or repaired items are not done by licensed contractors, we understand this is of a concern to you. As an additional optional service to all home buyers, we are glad to offer re-inspections.
For a standard fee you can schedule a re-inspection appointment.
It is a; ($100) 1-hour maximum time. You can call 210-705-9314 to schedule your re-inspection appointment, minimum 3 days in advance.
Re-inspections cannot be scheduled online.
One of the benefits to get a re-inspection is to make sure that you get what you were promised to get repaired during your negotiations with the seller, however, in Texas, all repairs must be performed by licensed contractors, and of course you should get all the receipts, and all warranties and guarantees behind the repair. Also, ask for photos showing they did their work. Of course, always remember, sellers, are under no obligation to provide any repairs. Also realize, no house is perfect. And again, always consult your Real Estate Agent.
We do not recommend a re-inspection.
Keep in mind that a re-inspection is only for a list of specific items previously selected by buyer and agents, not the whole house. For more information on the 3 different types of re-inspections, and fees, please call 210-705-9314
From the technical side, drones provide a way to inspect roofs that would otherwise be inaccessible. Often, a roof is inaccessible when it is too high, too steep, or too wet to safely access. Additionally, certain roofing materials, such as clay tile, or significant amounts of wear may inhibit an inspector from traversing the roof.
Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show homeowners things about their homes that can't be revealed using conventional inspection methods. Ancillary inspection reports are just as important as the reports you generate for standard home inspections.
Experience and skills are important.
