Coronavirus Update

How can I get my home inspected during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown in HOUSTON, Harris County? We are currently offering Commercial and Residential Real Estate inspections during these trying times. Residential and commercial real estate inspections are exempt from the COVID 19 Houston Lockdown Rules, and therefore may be done.

We are performing real estate inspections during COVID-19 with your safety in mind and in accordance to new CDC rules. In addition we have our enhanced corporate safety policy.

Stay Safe

"A real estate inspection is a visual review of the residence. The more your inspector knows, the better inspection you will get. It is important that the inspector you choose be very well versed in all phases of the inspection process. The more your inspector knows, the more details the inspector is aware of, the more likely the inspector is to find possible defects, deficiencies and/or hazards in the building. Since the inspection is the beginning of the due diligence process, it is important that your inspector find as much of the visible indications of defects and/or hazards as possible so that you can make sure your new home will be functional and safe."
