Before you sell your home one of the smartest things you can do is get it inspected. This is the only way you can be sure that there is nothing significantly wrong with the property you are selling.

It also gives you a chance to fix any home inspection issues before you put the home up on the market. Knowing how to prepare for a home inspection is one of the critical elements in making sure you avoid problems with your sale.

Without a doubt, the buyer of your home will do their own home inspection, so it only makes sense to correct any known issues before a for sale sign hits your lawn!

This page provides examples of the types of items reviewed by a Licensed Professional Real Estate Inspector, however, the actual items inspected vary by location. Any home inspection will only be performed according to the defined standards set forth by the Texas Real Estate Commission unless another authority has proper jurisdiction of the property.

This diagram is for information purposes only and includes components that may (or may not) be accessible during a home inspection.
