Inspecting with integrity to a higher standard

Pre-Purchase Inspection

A Pre-purchase inspection is usually performed after a property has been put on the Real Estate market by a Seller, but before a potential Buyer has taken possession of the property prior to the closing contract. The Buyer will usually sign a contingency agreement with the Seller prior to ordering this type of home inspection. If a property fails to meet the Buyer's expectations as a result of the home inspection, then the sale of the home could be jeopardized. In many cases, a Buyer's Inspection will help both the Buyer and the Seller to identify damages or other issues that may exist with a property so that both parties can either renegotiate the selling price or the Seller has the option of taking the responsibility of repairing the property at the Seller's expense, prior to close of escrow.


Even if the Seller has already performed a Seller's Pre-Listing Inspection and has a report from another home inspector, Buyers should always perform their own home inspection to prevent "Seller's bias" in any way, shape or form. HomeWise Inspections PLLC will perform a complete inspection of your prospective home, which includes evaluating over 400 items throughout the home. It normally takes me approximately 2-4 hours to complete the home inspection, depending on the size and the existing condition of the home. We will then produce your full colored report with photos, which will contain every bit of detailed information about the home. As always a full colored report with photos will be completed and delivered within 24 hours following the inspection.

The Pre-purchase Inspection is conducted in accordance with guidelines set forth in the Standards of Practice Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC)(in Texas), the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI)(TX and CO), and the Texas professional real estate inspectors association (TPREIA), and includes a thorough inspection of all major structural and mechanical components of a house.
