Buying a home is a time of heightened emotion. You’re often spending a lot of your hard earned money on a down payment and a future obligation of mortgage payments.
A home inspection is a smart way to ensure you are aware of the potential problems that could arise after you move in. But how much should a home inspection cost?
Across over 80,000 home inspections in the Spectora network in the past year, our data shows the average home inspection to cost $358.
We recommend that you do your research. Go online and do a search for home inspectors in your local area. Who has great reviews? Who has a professional online presence?
These will often be the inspectors that are professionals, have seen many houses and provide excellent customer service. You deserve an inspector that is good with people and will give you real, actionable advice on what to look out for. And of course, a high or low price does not dictate quality. A new inspector that charges less could be outstanding, just like an experienced inspector that charges more could be complacent and no good.
