A Thorough Home Inspection Could Save You Thousands of Dollars!
The home you have selected may appear to be just what you are looking for, but how can you be sure there aren’t potentially serious unknown defects! The inspection is designed to locate, expose problems and potential problems which may make this future investment a costly one. I am dedicated to providing you with valuable information about your potential home. I thoroughly inspect all major components of the subject property to expose unknown defects. Many items that will be in the report are often manageable repairs however important items that can be costly may include issues with the: foundation, roof, heating & air, termites, rodent activity, water penetration or swimming pool issues.
I encouraged you to be present at the completion of the inspection to listen and better understand what was discovered. Be sure to ask questions regarding your concerns. Upon receiving the report you may decide to terminate the contract and continue your home search. AAdvanced will provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision.
The inspection time varies with the size and complexity of the house, but a general rule of thumb is one hour for every 1,000 square feet. Additional time will be needed for swimming pools, detached structures, and homes with a crawl space. The older the home the longer the report will be. A computerized report will be emailed to you within 24 hours (most of the time you will receive the report before midnight on the day the inspection).
I need to note that there is a company operating in the North Dallas area of Richardson that has a very similar name which appeared in the area around 2013. Some of my clients have mistakenly booked with this company yet I have no affiliation with them. I cannot say how good or poor their service is. I make an effort to post my name and along with my website in the search engines to be clear as possible.
Choosing an Inspector
The consumer needs to know that price alone should not be the determining factor for selecting your home inspector. The best price does not translate into the Buyer receiving a quality inspection. Inspectors are all required to work by the TREC guidelines but this does not mean that all Property Inspection Reports or Inspectors are equal. Inspection knowledge is gained by practicing the trade and having numerous experiences under ones belt. Who makes a good inspector? Inspectors that started their career in building and construction. Inspectors that have many years of inspection experience. Inspectors that served an apprenticeship with an established inspection firm. Not inspectors whose training is primarily classroom education.
My impression is that twenty percent of practicing home inspectors are dedicated to providing the best report they are able to. Only about ten percent of inspectors fully understand how to assess a property and communicate accurately what the issues are.
Many home inspectors have a certificate from the state and have gained their knowledge from classroom education. Unfortunately classroom knowledge does not help the new inspector to understand how to assess issues they find in the field. There is an endless stream of individuals getting in and out of the business while charging inspection fees that will not sustain them. Very important to know that the first inspection license #1 was around 1988, my license 3619 was issued in 1993, license numbers around 10,000 were issued around 2008 and license numbers 20,000 are most recent probably five years or less time.
