Hi everyone I just made my first offer on a home to get it under contract. My agent says I made a very strong offer and their are a few other unknown offers. Anyways my agent says if I get the contract there will be an option period of 7-10 days for $100 out of my pocket to get the home inspected.
My question is, can anyone recommend a great inspector here in Fort Worth who's worth the price? I mean someone who charges a good price would be great but I'm looking for a good deal with a very knowledgable inspector with insane attention to detail. Also does it cost more if I ask to check for mold? Or termites or such?
This came up a few days ago for Dallas. I don't know if Lee does Ft. Worth, but its worth a shot.
@Shawn Thom Yes thanks! I actually read thru this thread. Since Warren Lee is in Dallas I figure he probably wouldn't do Fort Worth but I'll give his company a call if I get the contract on the home. In the meantime if anyone from Fort Worth knows of a more experienced local home inspector then I'm all ears!
Its funny how all these people are needed in purchasing a home. I do plan one day to get my very own real estate license to buy my own homes and somehow learn how to be my own home inspector. This should save me big bucks in the long run

I've used dallas green works multiple times and I am very happy with both their price and their attention to detail. They have inspected homes for me from pilot point to Saginaw. Good luck with the offer!
Are you planning to wholesale the house, rehab and flip it, or is this for you to live in?
I ask, because depending on the purpose of getting it under contract, you might not need an inspector.
@ Anderson I'm focusing on buy and hold. These homes I bidding on are almost like turnkey. That's also great that you guys can recommend me some inspectors. I'll look the up thanks everyone!
