Practical Solutions about Killeen Home Inspection

Inspect systems and components that are specified in the Standards as being expected to be inspected in a visible and usable manner; A home inspection should not be thought of as a “technically exhaustive” assessment, but rather as an assessment of the property on the day it is inspected, taking into account usual wear and tear for the home’s age and place. Radon gas tests, water testing, energy audits, insect checks, pool inspections, and a variety of other special things that may be unique to the area of the country where the inspection takes place may all be added to a home inspection for an additional fee.

Home inspections are often used (less frequently) by sellers prior to selling their property to see if there are any hidden issues that they are unaware of, as well as by homeowners who genuinely want to take care of their properties, avoid surprises, and keep their home investment value as high as possible. As a licenced Home Inspector, there are days when “What is a Home Inspection?” I’m often asked. And it’s a great question for someone who hasn’t been directly involved in a residential real estate deal, as well as for those who have. Any meaning of the term “home inspection” is largely determined by where the inspection is being performed (which state or municipality) and with which agency, if any, the Home Inspector is affiliated.

Some states have implemented licencing standards, although others have not. It’s worth noting that an inspection of a home (note that I didn’t say “home inspection”) performed in a state with no licencing standards, by someone with no or limited experience and no professional association affiliation, could be something he or she decides at any given time…very, very scary! And, if all is as it should be, we should be able to answer the subject question without having to figure out what “Is” means.
