Why a Pre-Listing Home Inspection? Sure your home was in great shape when you built it. Or was it? Why take the risk of selling your home and then having a buyer’s home inspector find countless issues that will cost you thousands off the price and maybe even cost you the sale? For a small fraction of the overall sale, why not have the peace of mind that your home is in good condition?
And now for the “fine print”:
Your inspector is also employed as a project manager by Residential Improvement Services, LLC, a construction company specializing in residential contracting and repairs. Pursuant to section 535.220(e) (6) of the Texas Administration Code, “[The] inspector shall not accept employment to repair, replace, maintain or upgrade systems or components of [a] property covered by the Standards of Practice under this sub-chapter on which the inspector has performed an inspection under a real estate contract, lease, or exchange of real property within 12 months of the date of the inspection.” This is to ensure that the inspection performed on the date listed above is not confused as a “hard sale” of any products or services but is instead an education on the condition of the property at a period in time.
