    I have never done anything like this and I don't have much time to do research.

    Can anyone recommend a good home inspecter in the Austin Area?

    Ask Sig_Fiend, he helped me get my realtor. Or message me and I'll send you the realtor info and he can suggest someone. I just did the inspection on my house on my own.

    My realtor just sent me a list of people to choose from. Having a hard time investing into something I barely have a chance to research.

    Sent from the Bacon isle at your local grocery store.

    It's a lot of $. $400 was the estimate I got.

    Try Yelp for reviews or reddit.com/r/austin

    Is the house very old?

    I HIGHLY recommend this guy, Michael:

    Michael Scher, Home Inspector - ActiveRain.com


    He did a few home inspections for us when we were finding our house. Awesome guy. He is highly analytical and really went above and beyond. Found some very discreet things most people would miss, with a house we were considering, and saved us from getting in to a serious problem house. IIRC, I think he usually charges around ~$350 for a standard inspection on a 1 story home. Tell him Travis sent you.

    Thank you. I could not get ahold of him but I did get lucky with someone else. Thank you for the help now I need to find a roofer for a estimate lol.

    Nev Nicholson, Aspect Inspections, 512-328-0995. He does a very detailed inspection, one of the best I've seen.
