Home inspections provide a level of objectivity in evaluating a home. It is recommended that any home, even a new home, be inspected. Home inspectors play the role of the objective third party. Typically, home inspectors evaluate a property five to ten days before contract negotiations are complete in order to secure mortgage approval. A typical North Texas home inspection will cost about $300 to $500 and take a few hours; prices fluctuate by area. Inspection allows buyers and sellers to resolve problems prior to closing. Even though Texas has no home inspection requirements, it is still recommended that you have one performed. For a seller, a home inspection as part of pre-listing a home can help sell the home in a timelier manner. For a buyer, it helps cut down the emotional appeal of a property and gives a more objective and realistic evaluation. Important things to remember:
Home inspection is now a regulated industry, so make sure you hire a licensed inspector.
