Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my inspection cost?

Our inspection price is based on the square footage of the home. Generally, most inspections cost between $350-$425. Additional fees apply for add-on services.

How long will my home inspection take?

Our inspections will last approximately three hours. Each house is different and, depending on the size and condition, it can take longer.

Why do I need a home inspection?

Buying a home is the largest investment you may ever make. A home inspection is a complete evaluation of that investment. The primary objective is to identify any potential major repairs, builder oversights, and maintenance issues. This helps educate you about the home and minimizes any surprises down the road.

When should I schedule a home inspection?

Once you have found the perfect home and have an accepted offer, you should schedule your home inspection. Your contract will usually allow a grace period for inspections. We recommend making your purchase contingent on the findings of a professional inspector.

Should I be present for the home inspection?

While your presence is not mandatory, we encourage you to at least attend a walkthrough at the end of the inspection. This gives you the opportunity to ask questions with the inspector and see any problems that need attention. Our inspectors can also educate you about the homes systems and give you a better understanding of their functions.

Do I need a home inspection on a new home?

While new homes tend to have fewer issues than older homes, a professional inspector can identify poor craftsmanship and improper installation methods, as well as assist you in understanding how the systems in your new home operate. We catch critical issues on new homes more than you would expect. No home is perfect!

Can a seller have an home inspection before listing the home for sale?

Yes, a pre-listing inspection can identify concerns a seller may have about their property before listing it. A pre-listing inspection will allow the seller to make repairs in a timely manner by their contractor of choice, rather than rushing to get it done during a transaction. A pre-listing inspection is the ultimate disclosure by a seller.

Does a house fail inspection?

A home inspection is not pass/fail. We simply inspect the home and and provide you with as much information as possible so you can make an educated decision on the property.
