Conduct Inspections

When the details of your home purchase have been agreed upon and the Earnest Money contract delivered to the title company, there is much left to do. With a negotiated agreement in hand, it is time to initiate an evaluation of the property. The contract should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections of the property before you are bound to finalize the purchase.

Your Heritage Texas Properties sales associate can advise you as to which inspections are recommended or required, then help you find qualified professional inspectors, organize the time and date of those inspections and take care of all the details. Typical inspections ordered from one or more professionals are structural – which generally includes mechanical, plumbing, and electrical, but these may be done separately – and termite. Additional inspections will be required by your lender including a survey to determine boundaries and an appraisal to determine value.

Structural inspections are particularly important. During these examinations, an inspector comes to the property to determine if there are material physical defects and whether expensive repairs and replacements are likely to be required in the next few years. Such inspections for a single-family home often require two or three hours, and buyers should attend. This is an opportunity to examine the property’s mechanics and structure, ask questions and learn far more about the property than is possible with an informal walk-through.

These inspections help you avoid purchasing a home damaged by termites or in need of major repairs. A suggested list by inspectors of minor repairs, however, is quite typical and buyers may request they be made in advance of the sale or that a consideration in price be made so that buyers can make those repairs after their purchase. Whichever you choose, those conditions should be conveyed and negotiated with the Seller via your Sales Associate.
