When you need a home inspection for your Houston area house, you want to be sure you can get the most out of this essential evaluation. Even doing a little bit of groundwork during the inspection process can help you get the most out of your home assessment. From using a licensed inspector to wrapping the home inspection fee in with the closing costs, Bryan & Bryan Inspections recommends these four tips for a successful home inspection.

4 Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Home Inspection

1. Professional Credentials

When looking for a professional home inspector, you’ll definitely want to check the state’s requirements for inspection licensing, making sure your inspector meets these standards. The home inspectors at Bryan & Bryan Inspections are licensed and insured and follow all the licensing requirements of the Texas Real Estate Commission. They’re also trained and supervised by a Certified Master Inspector (CMI), which is a professional designation only available to inspectors who meet strict standards.

2. Specialized Inspections

If the home inspection report reveals any issues like cracks in the foundation, signs of mold, or moisture in the stucco roof, you may want to have a specialized inspection performed. Thankfully, Bryan & Bryan Inspections conducts a variety of specialized inspections. Plus, we offer several packages to help you save both time and money.

3. Effective Negotiations

If you have an inspection conducted for a home you are buying, be sure to bring any findings to the negotiation table. You may be able to negotiate a lower price, ask for credit on your closing costs, or have the seller complete many of the necessary repairs. 

4. Worry-Free Inspection

Did you know that you can pay your home inspection fee at closing? Traditionally, home inspection fees are paid separately, but with this financial convenience, you can package any inspection fees with your closing costs. Buying a home is an expensive investment, but thankfully, a home inspection doesn’t have to be.
