Home Inspection Cost
Home inspection cost varies based on the size, style (3-story row, 2-story single, etc.), age and selling price of the home.
You might ask, “What does the selling price of the house have to do with the home inspection cost?” While not a perfect system, the selling price is usually a good indicator of the size of the home and the complexity of its systems. Basing the home inspection cost on the selling price of the home allows us to ask one question to which you are sure to know the answer, rather than a long list of questions to which you may or may not know the answer – wall construction, roof design, type of foundation, size of service and number of electrical panels, type and number of heating and cooling systems, and on and on…
Do not let cost be a factor in deciding whether or not to have a home inspection. The knowledge gained is well worth the cost of the home inspection. The lowest-priced inspector is not necessarily a bargain. The inspector’s qualifications, including his/her experience, training, and professional affiliations, should be the most important consideration.
Professionals at the top of their field do not attract clients with low fees and “special” offers. Lower priced usually means less qualified, less experienced, and less knowledgeable.
You wouldn’t hire an inspector who said, “I’m the least knowledgeable inspector in town. My report is hard to read and even harder to understand. Don’t worry though, I know just enough about buildings to get by. Oh, and by the way, should you have questions in the future, don’t bother calling – I’ll probably be out of the business by then.” Beware, this may be the unspoken message of the low priced inspector. Don’t make your choice based solely on home inspection cost.
