Choosing a home inspector is a difficult process. There are so many things to consider. Do you go with your Realtor’s recommended list the expensive company the cheap guy the list of questions goes on and on. To make it worse you have to hire the home inspector before you get to meet them.
Unfortunately, there is not a simple answer. Everyone will have different opinions. We believe there are two important things that every person hiring a home inspector should do if possible:
- Talk with the home inspector personally. This will help you get a feel for the inspector’s personality and communication skills.
- Look at sample home inspection reports. These sample reports will give you an idea of the actual product you will be receiving. While the Texas Real Estate Commission has standardized the format of the Texas home inspection report the type and quality of reports that can meet this standard varies. Does the inspector use a handwritten checklist? A narrative report with pictures? Is it readable, clear, helpful?
These are important factors in your decision. Below you will find several sample reports for your review. These sample reports are meant to give you a general idea of the home inspection report you will be receiving from Absolute Inspections, LLC.

These sample home inspection reports contain examples of real issues found in actual inspections performed by Absolute Inspections. But these issues may not all be from a single house. Therefore the sample reports are somewhat longer than the typical real report from a single house.
We invite you to review these reports and call with any questions you may have about the reports or the specifics of a home inspection. We will be happy to discuss your specific situation and answer any questions you have.
