Beware of the Blind Houston Home Inspector!
Most homes sold today in Texas are inspected; unfortunately 80% of Houston home inspectors appear to be blind when it comes to knowing what to look for during a Houston home inspection. The reason for this is by taking a few classes; passing the inspection exam ANYONE can obtain a license? There is no requirement that a person has ever even been inside a house. What this means to you, the home buyer, is that in many cases you are more qualified to perform an inspection on the home your buying than the good old boy inspector with cheap inspection prices and immediate availability.
One of the major reasons for a Houston home inspection is to avoid a money pit, just make sure your Houston home inspector knows what one looks like.
