Home Inspection Fee Blog

People Often Ask, “Why Don’t You Have A Set inspection Fee?”

Simple answer, in home inspection, one size does not fit all.

Some homes or condos can be inspected in around 2 hours but some can take over 4 hours and it takes around 2 hours to complete a report on some homes or condos and over 4 hours on others.

Money: Let’s put things in perspective: If you’re buying a $700,000 house and the inspection costs $700, that’s less than 0.001% of the cost of the house! Most real estate agencies charge around 5.00% to sell a home, that would be $35,000 for a $700,000 house! The cost of a home inspection is a bargain compared to the real estate agent’s commission.

If the inspection finds serious problems, your $700 could end up saving you many thousands of dollars. If the inspection turns up little wrong with the house, you’ve bought some relatively inexpensive peace of mind.

Remember, home inspectors know the value of their service and charge accordingly. (FYI, in Massachusetts, if a real estate agent, other than a true buyers agent, recommends or steers you to a particular home inspector, they are violating the real estate licensing law).
