I agree with the information given by Certified Structure Inspector, Home Inspector, Reno, NV .
Be sure you have a home inspector that covers all the items mentioned by Certified Stucture Inspector.
You probably will have to get more thorough, detailed, inspections done by licensed electricians, hvac people and plumbers, and in Dallas, probably a structural engineer.
Make sure the roof, beams, and its stucture is also checked thoroughly.
Love older homes. Which neighborhood are you studying?

These homes have charm and character not found in today's newer construction. If there are additional Dallas TX, inspections or requirements, make sure you verify everything with only reputable/qualified professionals.
Best of luck to you,
So make sure you protect yourself and cover all your bases.
Best of Luck to you,

You might also want to wait until a little later in the Spring to check the landscaping and trees.
If there are a lot of trees and this is of value to you, you might want a certified arborist also take a look.
I think it also depends on where you buy.
If it is in a designated historical district, you would also want to have a long chat with the preservation commission.
