2. Can we make the seller fix everything the inspector finds?

No. This inspection report is to make you aware of the condition of the property. We can not force the seller to fix anything. We are like a dog with no teeth: we can bark all we want, but we can't bite. Yes, that puts us between a rock and a hard place sometimes. From the report and the condition of the house, you then as the buyer need to decide if you can live with whatever the seller refuses to fix, or do you walk away and keep looking. Just remember, there are a lot of houses out there, so try not to get too involved with a house, just in case the deal falls through. You can use the report as a negotiating tool or end up with it as your "honey-do" list, as some clients called it. You do NOT have to have a house inspected in Texas, but I would suggest that if you know little to nothing about plumbing, electrical, mechanical or structural systems, you really should have the inspection done. It can keep you out of the "money pit" if you get into something you knew nothing about.

3. Why the wolf logo?

It got your attention didn't it? Marketing 101 but also I am a HUGE animal lover. At this time, I have 2.5 dogs(?), 4 cats, several finches and a 75 gallon fish tank.... yes at one time in my life there were also ducks, guniea pigs, pet mice, love birds, parakeets and a couple more cats & dogs. Monthly donations ($) to the local SPCA to help these monsters is my happiness. Several of my dogs and cats are rescues from local shelters. My favorite saying is "Children are for people who can't have dogs."

4. I found a cheaper priced inspector.....

Yes, you can and if price is all you are concerned with, then please go with the other company. I will guarantee you will always find someone even cheaper if you look but I have based my inspections on price per sqft and feel you get a EXPERIENCED, QUALITY, THOROUGH inspection for the money. If you need referrals from past clients on previous inspections, I would be happy to send you names. To be honest with you, being in this business since 1998, I have always found companies cheaper OR more expensive than myself, but it's my reputation and referrals that has kept it going this many years. I take my job seriously since I am the only one running it. I want an educated consumer and a satisfied customer. What if your boss came to you and asked you to work for less money?
