|RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A THOROUGH INSPECTION
PRICE: Usually an inspector goes by the Appraisal districts listed square footage and the number of items outside
the scope of the in normal inspection.
(Texas Real Estate Commission: Standards of Practice).
LENGTH of TIME: As a general rule of thumb the inspection is quoted at 1hr for every 1000 sq/ft.
Present at Inspection: Here at A&K Real Estate Services, Inc. We generally either want the Buyer or Buyer's Agent
Present; however this is not required.
Utilities: All utilities such as gas, electric, water MUST be working at the time of inspection. (Additional fees apply if
inspector is requested to return to complete inspection or evaluation)
Replace all burned out light bulbs
Test and replace all smoke detector batteries as needed
Change all filters for the heating and air conditioning system
Have keys available for all doors and locks.
Remove all locks from gates and service panels so they can be accessed
Repair all minor known defects; loose/ damaged gutters, leaking faucets, damaged fixtures and hardware.
Remove all stored items and debris from around the foundation.
Move all items from around access panels including; electric panels, plumbing access panels in the closets and
the crawl space access opening.
We all love our pets but it would be best if they visited a friend or are put away during the inspection
The pool and hot tub equipment should be operational and accessible.
Provide a copy of all recent receipts for repairs and maintenance done to the house such as; roof, heating and air
conditioning system, and major appliances
Trim all trees and bushes away from the house
Remember that all stored items in attics, closets and craw spaces will limit the inspectors view, you may want to
During the inspection the inspector will be operating almost everything in the house and garage

Do you think Newly
built homes need
The answer is YES!!!
There is a common
new homes have no
need for an inspection
because they are new.
Builder's often have
their own inspectors
to inspect when the
project is complete.
Having your own
inspection give you
more fire power and
peace of mind when
dealing with the
company or Builder.
|The Real Answer
Even New homes
Just because a home
is new doesn't mean
the builder's sub
contractor didn't cut
corners or use
builder's inspector is
often there after the
fact and goes through
a punch list.
New or Used homes
need an inspection. It
never hurts to have a
second or third pair
|Building codes change
every 3 years, county
codes differ from city
codes, The inspector
you hire should be able
to identify with the
newer and older codes
and allow for a
of the home and ask
the seller or builder's
the how, when, why or
what's of the home or
