Home inspections provide a level of objectivity in evaluating a home. It is recommended that any home, even a new home, be inspected. Home inspectors play the role of the objective third party. Typically, home inspectors evaluate a property during the "option period" that is typically negotiated into a contract which provides the buyer the right to terminate the contract for any reason whatsoever. By having inspections performed during the option period, buyers have the opportunity to resolve any property condition issues with the seller of the property or to terminate the contract if a solution cannot be negotiated. A general Amarillo home inspection will cost between $325 to $475 and take a few hours; prices fluctuate slightly for surrounding areas. Even though Texas has no home inspection requirements, we highly recommend you have one performed. For a buyer, it provides an objective and realistic evaluation of the property's condition.
General Property Inspectors are regulated by the Texas Real Estate Commission, so make sure you hire a licensed inspector.
