Foreclosure Inspections in Houston
Foreclosure Inspections may be different than what you think. Find out about my service on this page.
Do you need a foreclosure inspection? I imagine that you will want someone who has inspected many foreclosures, which I have, but a foreclosure inspector is really an industry specific term for the person who goes into a house just after it has been foreclosed upon to check its condition in regards to its ability to be sold. They look at questions about appearance. Does it need new paint or carpet? A home inspector checks the condition of the house. Do you have plumbing leaks? Does the air conditioning work? You can say that we are checking if the home is livable.
I do inspect foreclosures for real estate investors and home buyers in the Houston area, but I also provide a foreclosure inspection service where I not only check the standard items on a home inspection, but I also create a punch list of fixes that need to be taken care of to make the home sellable. This is more a service for lenders or investors who have foreclosed upon a house. If you are looking for inspection when buying a home, or if you are looking for an inspection after having foreclosed upon a property, go to the Request a Quote page for more information on prices.
