Benefit With Our Inspection Services

After we walk through the home together,  your inspector will personally explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report, that will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.

How long does it take for a home inspection report?

With HBIG Home Inspections, the Client and the Buyers Agent should get the home inspection report that evening or first thing next morning but within 24-48 hrs of it being completed. Once all the inspections are in your agent will work with you to determine what repairs to request. Your agent will then present the repair request to the Sellers Agent to review with you.

What do they look for in a home inspection?

Whole-home inspections cover numerous systems within the house, but there are a handful of hot-spots that concern buyers the most. Below is a diagram of what the home inspection covers. If you still have a concern send us a message or call (210) 243-5591.

Can you fail a home inspection?

It is not an appraisal, which determines market value. It is not a municipal inspection, which verifies local code compliance. A home inspector, therefore, will not pass or fail a house, but rather describe its physical condition and indicate what components and systems may need major repair or replacement.

What is included in a home inspection report?

Sample home inspection reports. Almost no home is going to be perfect (even new or recently built construction). Inspectors will usually discover some issues needing attention or that the buyer and seller should be aware of. These sample home inspection reports reflect typical homes in good condition.
