Home Inspection San Antonio
A home inspection is a great negotiation tool for closing. It also provides you the opportunity to learn if the house is safe, if everything is working, and to ask questions like: "What's this do?" or "Is this serious or just cosmetic?" G I Jones Home Inspection has a goal to make the inspection process as easy as possible. We provide several methods to book an inspection online or on the phone, we also provide same day reporting.
If you are thinking of selling your home soon, this inspection is for you. By having a pre-sale inspection you can get ahead of any issues that may come up during your sale. Find out what needs to be fixed or replaced to help you get the best sale price possible. You can also use the inspection report on your listing to help sell your house faster!
This is the most common inspection I perform and the one most people know. This inspection is normally done during the option period of the home purchase. The inspection report can be used to give you more bargaining chips or to help you decide if you should buy the home. No one wants to have any surprises after purchasing a house except a bottle of champagne. The report will be provided for you at the end of the inspection.
A phase inspection is an inspection that takes place over the course of the building of a house. So if you are building a new home a phase inspection is recommended. The different stages that are commonly inspected are: pre-pour foundation inspections, framing inspection and final inspection. Discuss with your builder the best time to schedule your phase inspection.
How does it work?
1. Get a Quote
Call, text, email or fill out the form here on the website. To get a quote, I will need some information about the property, specifically the square footage, age of the home, septic or sewer, if there are any pools, sprinkler systems or outbuildings. You can use the online scheduling system to provide a quote prior to scheduling the inspection.
Once your offer is in on the house, we can schedule it for as soon as possible. This will allow you the most amount of time to review the report before the option period ends.
It is industry standard to have a signed contract prior to the inspection, and helps protect you and me. I utilize an online inspection agreement system, making it easy to read and sign. If using the online scheduler, an email will automatically be sent with the contract that can be signed electronically.
After the schedule and contract is ready I will arrange the inspection and perform it at the scheduled time. The inspection normally takes a couple of hours and you are more than welcome to come during the inspection. Once the inspection is complete we can do a walk through of the property and look at any red flags together. The inspector will finish the report prior to leaving the site.
The invoice will be sent after the inspection and can all be paid online. Just like everything else these days it can all be done with your phone. We use Quickbooks to handle to the payment processing so it is safe and secure.
After the payment comes through the report will follow. It will be sent via email in a PDF format. Be sure to check your spam folder, as it sometimes ends up there. The report has a glossary at the end in case there is any terminology that is unfamiliar.
