“Option Period” Home Inspections

As the buyer, it is important to schedule an Option Period home inspection by a qualified, experienced, professional. RW Home Inspections has been providing Option Period home inspections in Houston that offer Texans peace of mind that thee home they are buying is issue-free. If your real estate contract includes an Option Period, be sure to request an inspection right away to allow us ample time to inspect your home before you are locked into the contract.
