What Does a Home Inspection Cost?
The inspection fee for a typical one-family house varies geographically, as does the cost of housing. Similarly, within a given area, the inspection fee may vary depending upon the size of the house, its particular features, its age, and possible additional services, such as septic, well, or radon testing.
I remember the old adage my Grandmother used to tell me, "an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure". That is sound advice and it is still true. It costs a whole lot less to have a thorough professional inspection of your proposed new house, than to face the cost of curing an unknown structural (or other) fault or condition found after you have bought and moved into your new home. Don't
let cost be a factor in deciding whether or not to have a home inspection, or for that matter, in the selection of your home inspector.
The knowledge gained from a professional inspection, by a reputable inspector, is well worth the cost, and the lowest-priced inspector is not necessarily a bargain. The inspector's qualifications, including his experience, training, and professional affiliations, should be the most important consideration.
Our prices start at $395.00 for a small, newer home (like a small Condo for example) and go up as the house gets bigger and older. Typically a 20 year old, 2000 square foot home, falls in the $435.00 to $450.00 range. Prices will be somewhat higher for larger and/or older houses.
