Property Inspections

The recent "deep freeze" here in Central Texas caused a lot of property damage.  In many areas, frozen water pipes cracked and when the thaw took place so did the flooding. This happened in homes, businesses, irrigation systems and pools. The damage wasn't just in the pipes. Water pumps cracked, drywall was saturated and ceilings & floors buckled.

If you are planning to sell your property in the near future, you can differentiate your property by having a licensed Home Inspector perform an inspection prior to listing the property.  This can enable you to avoid surprises and delays during the sales process. The findings from the inspection will enable you to fix what is serious and document any issues that you wish the Buyer to accept "as-is". This will also provide your Buyer "peace of mind" regarding the maintenance of your property. Home inspections can usually be contracted for $300 to $500 depending on the property.

In the past several weeks, I've had multiple Buyers ask me how to address their concerns related to potential recent issues due to the freeze. Time will pass and memories are short but having a "preemptive home inspection" can grease the wheels of a smooth sales transaction.
