Michael Scher

Owner & Inspector


Prior to becoming a home inspector in 2005, Michael worked in the high-tech industry as a software tester. In the early 2000’s, Michael began researching different careers in which he could be self-employed, financially secure, and able to spend more quality time with his growing family. After much thoughtful consideration, Michael decided a career as a home inspector would be the ideal fit and began training for and earned his Professional Inspector License in Texas, TREC# 8529. Michael strictly follows the TREC’s Standards of Practice.

Attention to detail was a critical part of Michael’s skills as a software tester, and he found home inspecting drew on this same strength. Both homeowners and realtors in Austin, TX depend on the friendly, professional, and accurate residential inspections provided by Austin Home Inspection Team.

Michael was recommended to us by our realtor and we are very pleased to have worked with him. Michael’s attention to detail is simply amazing, seeing things that in the past I don’t believe other inspectors had even thought to look at. We were purchasing a new home and his insight on what was an immediate need versus what should be monitored during the warranty period was incredibly insightful.

I’ve known Michael since 1995 and I’ve been working with him for years. I am a real estate broker who works with buyers in every price range and every part of town. Michael is my primary inspector of choice. Always incredibly thorough, patient, and professional, he is an asset to my team of vendors. I’m thankful to know him. You won’t find a better inspector in the Austin area.

Michael was very professional, thorough and patient.  He even went outside of the scope of the home inspection to explain items to watch out for. Buying a home can be stressful but having the peace of mind knowing that you have an inspector that takes pride in his work was awesome! The report with pictures were detailed enough alone but he took the time to also make sure he walked me thru it all.
