Home Inspections, like the homes themselves, are each unique.
As such, we price each home inspection according to the specs of the home. Several factors are taken into consideration. The primary factors that affect inspection price include the following:
The primary factor that affects the cost of home inspection is the size of the home. Larger homes have a greater quantity of, and often more complex systems, that require additional time and knowledge to evaluate.
Age of the home
Older homes require additional time to fully evaluate and there are a number of reasons. Firstly, older homes are more likely to have been modified over time, and it takes additional effort to sort out what's what, and to make a full evaluation. Older homes also have different systems than newer homes, of which the setup might not be so straightforward, requiring additional effort from the inspector to evaluate.
Navigating a crawlspace is uncomfortable, but that's not why they cost extra - it's because we have to use consumable gear to ensure we stay safe when navigating crawlspaces. This includes body, eye, and breathing protection that needs to be sanitized, cleaned, or repalced after each crawlspace inspection.
Distance (when outside of our service area)
Although not exactly a factor of the home itself, we know that many homes that need inspection are quite a distance from metro areas and require additional travel by our inspectors. We don't want to leave those homes without options, so we pass on a minimal travel fee when outside of our service area so that we can service the smaller, more distant communities.
Optional services can be added onto the base inspection, such as water quality testing, or specialty services.
Now that you understand why we choose not to use a one-size-fits-all approach, you may like to know that all of our inspections all start at just $349.
