    Real Estate Inspection

    Real Estate Inspection

    In today’s dynamic real estate market, a comprehensive inch-by-inch inspection report of a home’s structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems is one of the most valuable tools a buyer, seller, or real estate professional can have. By gaining a thorough understanding of any potential deficiencies, a property’s true market value can be established, and the estimated costs of repairs can be budgeted for buyer credits at closing. Whether it’s new construction or an older home, a third-party inspection gives buyer’s the peace of mind they deserve when they decide to go under contract. For more than three decades, B&J Inspections has provided greater Houston with transparent third-party inspections based on honesty, integrity, and dedication to customer service.

    Plumbing Inspection

    Plumbing Inspection

    A quality Home Plumbing Inspection is one of the best ways to avoid costly damages and repairs in the future. Because pipes and plumbing systems are often underneath the floor, in foundations, and behind drywall, they can sustain damage that goes unnoticed to the naked eye. B&J Inspections has over three decades of experience inspecting all aspects of residential and commercial plumbing systems. Water heaters, toilets, outdoor faucets, and pressure tests ensure that all plumbing systems are functioning correctly. When a deficiency is found, we’ll clearly state the issue so that you can get a closing credit for repairs or develop a scope for service or improvements. A burst pipe can cause water damage to drywall, flooring, furniture, appliances, and more, and B&J Inspections will inspect every aspect of your plumbing system to ensure there’s proper insulation in place to keep the pipes from freezing during the winter months. If you notice any leaks, please contact a professional plumber immediately as water can be one of the most destructive forces for a building, and any issue should be addressed immediately.

    Plumbing Inspections include:

    • Thorough inspection of sinks, tubs, toilets, lines, and pipes
    • Water heater and tankless water heater inspections
    • A comprehensive inspection for pinhole leaks
    • Interior and exterior inspection of all plumbing systems
    • Insulation inspection to ensure pipes won’t burst during a winter freeze

    Roof Inspection

    Roof Inspection

    The roof of a home or commercial building is subject to the harshest elements, especially in Texas. During the heat and hurricane season, roofs tend to get damaged, and an inch-by-inch inspection is critical to determine if the property in question require any costly repairs. For more than three decades, B&J Inspections has delivered honest, transparent, and comprehensive roof inspections that give potential buyers an accurate picture of the roof’s condition. We walk every square inch when possible and provide a detailed report that will give you complete confidence.

    Pre-Sale Inspection

    Pre-Sale Inspection

    By scheduling a pre-sale inspection, sellers can get a comprehensive idea of any potential issues before a buyer requests credit towards repairs following closing or identifying deficiencies before they can be used as a bargaining chip by prospective buyers. This also allows you to disclose any potential issues in your seller’s disclosure so that you can avoid buyers raising flags on any issue, major or minor. By identifying possible deficiencies, you can choose your preferred contractor to perform the work with your budget in mind. Another added benefit of a pre-sale inspection is that it shows potential buyers that you’re confident in your property and have nothing to hide. This can make your listing more attractive in this competitive market. B&J Inspections has been performing pre-sale inspections for more than three decades and understands the importance of an inch-by-inch inspection.

    Third Party Inspection

    Third Party Inspection

    Third-Party Inspections are often referred to during the home buying process and are a catch-all term for any inspections done by someone not directly involved in the transaction. The primary purpose of a third-party inspection is to provide an unbiased assessment of a property’s condition, including mechanical systems, appliances, and more. Because both the seller and buyer have a vested interest, it’s important to get an impartial report to make sure you are making a sound investment.

    Commercial Inspection

    Commercial Inspection

    Due to the variety in size, scope of mechanical systems, and types of buildings that fall under the commercial designation, commercial buildings require a more in-depth inspection process. The commercial zoning designation encompasses restaurants, office spaces, warehouses, retail stores, factories, manufacturing facilities, and more. This requires inspectors to have a thorough understanding of a wide range of systems and the ability to give an inch-by-inch evaluation of large spaces without missing anything. B&J Inspections has been Greater Houston’s trusted partner for more than three decades, and our commitment to commercial inspections goes beyond simply walking the property. We check each mechanical system to identify potential deficiencies or future breakdowns. Because the cost of repairs to commercial properties is significantly high, it is imperative to identify any necessary repairs before committing to a purchase or lease. In addition, commercial properties bear greater liability for employee and customer safety, so ensuring that all electrical, HVAC systems, and other mechanical components are operating correctly is crucial.

    Repair Estimate Report

    Repair Estimate Report (RER)

    Once your home inspection is completed, the inspection report will give you a fair idea of what needs to be repaired and how.

    To keep our clients well informed about the costs involved in making such repairs, we provide them with an option to obtain a Repair Estimate Report (RER).

    This report comes at a price of $80 and includes cost estimates for the repair needs and potential issues identified during your home inspection. It will provide you with the information that you will need to negotiate with the seller for the most expensive repairs.

    You can go forward swiftly and confidently with a guide that immediately shows you how much repairs and renovations should cost.

    How it works:

    • Based on your inspection report summary, the experts at Porch will send you an itemized list of quotes to review.
    • It’s easier than ever to create a repair request addendum once you’ve received the estimates.
    • Using our Repair Estimate Report, you can save time and money while negotiating.

    RER Delivery

    The report is delivered within 36-48 hours, and if you need it earlier, you can opt for a rush delivery that will ensure the report is delivered to you within 24-hours. The rush delivery comes at an extra fee of $40.

    RER features:

    • It is easy to understand so that you can efficiently deal with contractors and sellers and discuss repair costs.
    • It is itemized with the inspection report, allowing you to simply link the cost of repairs to the inspector’s recommendations.
    • Using the numbers provided, real estate agents can create a repair request addendum document to accelerate the buying process.

    RER for Homebuyers

    The Repair Estimate Report is valuable to homebuyers because it relieves tension during the post-inspection project and gives precise cost estimates for the home they are buying.

    RER for Agents

    For agents, the Repair Estimate Report is valuable since it offers them more power and efficiency during the post-inspection negotiating process. A realtor must spend hours after each inspection gathering prices for the fixes noted in the home inspection report. Agents can save time and energy during this process by using the Repair Estimate Report.
