6. How much will it cost?

The price of your Home Inspection will vary on the size of your home and the type of inspections required. Please call me for a price quote.

If your shopping for prices, I offer this advice. Don’t hire your inspector based upon price alone. Hire your inspector based upon how they communicate with you. Are they patient and informative, or, condescending and demeaning? A Home Inspection is a learning event and your inspectors ability to communicate with you is more important than saving a couple of dollars.
