Pre-Owned Home

Congratulations, you have a contract pending! Now it’s time to get your possible future home inspected. Why get it inspected? It helps you to make an informed decision, helps minimize your risk and lets you proceed to purchase with confidence.

About the Inspection

There are many inspectors you may choose but when you hire Scotts Inspections, you get over 30 years of experience, inspectors that have completed additional training that exceeds the state’s requirements, a dedicated support team and a comprehensive, easy to read report that’s generated on the same day as the inspection to not delay your decision making.

We enable you to make an informed decision by providing an unbiased evaluation of the home’s present and physical conditional. The inspection includes structural and mechanical features in our general inspection report including but not limited to:

  • Structural Systems (roofing, walls, doors, ceilings,
    floors, fireplaces, windows, porches, decks, carports, etc.
  • Electrical Systems (heating, cooling, ducts, vents, circuits, fixtures, etc.)
  • Plumbing Systems (drains, wastes, water heating, hydro-therapy equipment, water supply systems, etc.)
  • Appliances (dishwasher, food waste disposer, ranges, ovens, trash compactor, microwave, dryers, etc.)
  • Optional Systems & Inspections (sprinkler systems, pools, spas, termite inspections)

For your records, visible defects or maintenance issues noted during the inspection are recorded in our report. Additionally, the results of performed tests such as air-conditioners and built-in appliances are recorded and can be used as proof of operation for any home warranty claim in the future.

We strongly encourage our clients to attend the inspection and participate in the process. We have learned from experience that participation enhances our inspection service; being present allows you to receive immediate answers to questions and leave with a clear understanding of the report. However, if you are unable to attend, our report is simple to read complete with color pictures and diagrams emailed to you within hours after the inspection.

We will provide an unbiased, objective, and professional evaluation of the homes current and physical condition based upon the Texas Real Estate Commission’s Standards of Practice for Home Inspectors.
