Default May I get the recommended inspectors, too?

we're buying a home in castle hills and want to make sure everything is relatively ok (it was built in 1960, so we expect some wear and tear). thanks.

Good Luck on getting a DM.
I asked for a DM on post #8 (09-26-11) and never did receive one.
I don't understand why a recommendation just can't be posted for all to see. That would sure save all this DM stuff and not make people have to request a secret recommendation.
I see other things and places recommended.
I thought that's one of the reasons CityData Forum was usefull.
So I guess sometimes it's ok and sometimes it's not.

Unlike some states in which anyone can hang out a shingle and call themselves a home inspector, in Texas a home inspector must be certified, I understand. Maybe you won't get "the best," whatever that may mean, but picking one at random will get you competence, probably.

The only thing to avoid is asking your real estate sales person to recommend one - when you do that, the inspector has future work recommendations in the back of his mind. This is the voice of experience here - I watched one two years ago realize he was pointing out too many discrepancies. Also, even though I paid him, he wouldn't return my calls later with questions about his findings. Hire him yourself and at least have a chance he's working for you.
