Home Inspection Services in San Antonio and Surrounding Areas
All Home Inspections include a full-color report with lots of pictures emailed to the client in most cases the night of the inspection, but at the latest the next morning. All home inspections also include a report walk-through and consultation with the client regarding any deficiencies that were observed with the house inspected.
We are more than happy to answer any questions about your home or any deficiencies that we observed, and this service extends throughout your home ownership.
Real Estate Transaction Inspections
By far the most common inspection performed, the purpose of the buyer’s inspection is to inform a buyer about the condition a property so they can negotiate repairs with a seller. Follows the TREC Standards of Practice.
A seller’s inspection identifies deficiencies that the buyer’s inspection would identify, so that the seller can repair and address any problems the home has to ensure a smoother transaction while saving money. Follows the TREC Standards of Practice.
While more commonly performed on investment properties, multi-family dwellings up to 4-units are still subject to the TREC Standards of Practice and still need to be inspected in order to evaluate the condition of the property. Multi-family homes have special needs and conditions that need to be evaluated separately from single-family homes, but they still contain many of the same components and we are more than happy to inspect them. Make sure your cash-cow isn’t really a money pit!
Other Home Inspection Services
Effectively the same thing as a regular Home-Buyer’s inspection, or standards of what constitutes a deficiency tighten up significantly on brand new homes. Builders hate us, but we want your home to be perfect, so we include any cosmetic defects observed during the inspection in the report. Follows the TREC Standards of Practice AND identifies cosmetic defects.
If you bought a brand new home within the last year, your house is likely still under warranty. A home warranty inspection is mostly a regular home inspection, and we’re trying to identify any builder’s defects that need to be addressed before they become a problem. We recommend this service be performed at least 1 month before your 12 month warranty expires, hence the “11th-Month” warranty. Includes cosmetic defect report.
Owned your home for a few years? Haven’t been able to spend as much time as you like on maintenance? A home maintenance inspection is a regular home inspection that will allow you to identify and repair any problems your home currently has before they become bigger problems. If you’re comfortable where you’re at currently but think you might be selling in the next few years, you need to get a maintenance inspection to keep your home in top condition.

We have a list of areas our home inspectors serve here.
When Should I Schedule the Home Inspection?
As soon as possible! Ideally, you will have your home inspector line-out so that as soon as you come under contract on your home, your inspector can be there the next day. Option periods are typically 7 days, but its not uncommon for 5 or even 3 day option periods depending on circumstances. You will need every extra day in order to come up with a punch-list and get estimates on repairs.
How Long Does The Typical House Inspection Last?
Typically about 3-4 hours, depending on factors such as size, age, overall condition, and additional services performed.
Do I Need to be Present For The House Inspection?
Not at all. As long as your inspector has access to the areas that need to be inspected, either by Supra-Ekey, combination lockbox, or occupant granting access, you don’t need to be there.
How Do I Pay?
If you choose to show up to the site of the inspection, you may pay with cash, check, or credit/debit card. If you choose not to be present for the inspection, let us know and we’ll send you an invoice that you can pay via credit/debit card online.
Do I Need to Sign Anything?
As soon as you book your inspection, we’ll email you a copy of our pre-inspection agreement. This agreement can be digitally signed and sent back to us.
