When you buy a home in Dallas, you need to know exactly what you’re buying. Imagine how frustrated you’d be to find out that the hot water heater wasn’t working—in the middle of a shower! This is why you should have a home inspection before you buy your home. A home inspection is an important part of buying your home. Before you hire a home inspector, ask candidates a few questions to make sure you hire a trustworthy inspector.
What does your inspection cover? Not all inspections are the same. Ask for copies of previous home inspections so you can see exactly what they will check inside the home. If you are concerned about something specific, like a leaky faucet in the bathroom, mention that to the inspector so they can check it out.
Are you licensed or certified? If you live in a state that licenses home inspectors, ask to see their license. At the very least, choose a home inspector who belongs to American Society of Home Inspectors. This shows a level of professionalism and education that you can trust.
What kind of report will you give me? You should expect a written report detailing what the inspector found. Most inspectors will give you a typed report within a week of the inspection. Make sure the inspector will be available to explain anything on the report that doesn’t make sense to you.
Will I be able to attend the inspection? If the inspector refuses to let you be present during the home inspection, find someone else. This is your chance to know exactly what you are buying and what potential repairs you or the seller will have to make.

Dreaming of a Luxury Home? Now’s the Time!If your house no longe
"have bought and sold a lot of homes in the past twenty years and have worked with many realtors. Kellye Demski has by far been the best agent I have ever worked with! Kellye has helped me both as a buyer and as a seller and she was exceptional at both. As a buyer, she took the time to find out what I really wanted, asked the right questions and did her research. In less than a month, she had me in the house of my dreams at far below market value. She took care of everything and it was one of the easiest transaction I’ve ever experienced. When it came time to sell, Kellye was the one I called. I was confident in her abilities to price my house and get the traffic it needed to sell, but I was blown away by how much time she took to help stage the house and how amazing the photos turned out. We had multiple offers, but Kellye did not pressure me to accept an offer until I found the right buyer. Again, she took care of everything and the transaction was so easy I could hardly believe it.
Kellye is knowledgeable, professional and honest. She’s extremely proactive and responsive without being pushy. She knows the right people and how to get things done, but most importantly, she truly cares about her clients and takes the time to get to know them and their needs. I highly recommend Kellye as an agent and will definitely work with her again in the future. "
