COMMON ODESSA HOME INSPECTION FINDS


What to Expect from Your Odessa Home Inspection

When buying a home in Odessa TX, regardless if you are a first time home buyer or moving up to another home, Nest Real Estate highly recommends a professional home inspection. The expense is around $300 – 350 for a home inspection and $100 for a pest inspection (and worth every penny).
