For the average 2,500 square foot home in Spring Texas, the inspections if they are all being performed by the same home inspector, will take approximately 3.5 to 4 hours to complete. The time for the individual inspections are mechanical and structural – 2 to 3 hours, wood destroying insects (WDI) – 30 minutes, and pool and spa – 30 minutes.
Between the time spent looking for homes, the writing and negotiating of the offer, and the collecting and submitting of the lender requested documents, the process of buying a Spring Texas home is quite time consuming. The thought of having to spend 3 to 4 more hours of your time attending the home’s inspection is probably not what you want to do. You may even be tempted to not attend the inspections and instead just review the inspectors report.
Although understandable I advise you to at least attend the last 30 minutes of the home’s inspection. The inspector can then show you the home’s deficiencies, discuss their level of severity and how to correct the deficiencies.
Even though you attended the inspection, you will still receive a written inspection report. Most home inspectors are able to email the report to you and your Spring Texas Realtor within 48 hours of the time of the inspection.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.
She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all.
Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result.
I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
