A word about pricing: the cost of a home inspection is typically less than 0.2 percent of the purchase price of a home. This is an excellent return on your investment.  Even at a fee of $350.00 to inspect a $125,000.00 home, the cost of an inspection is less than 0.2 percent! Many real estate agents or brokers will collect 5.0-6.0 percent of the sale price, and many mortgage brokers collect over 1.0-2.0 percent of the purchase price in fees. Our pricing reflects more about what the local market will bear than the true value of the inspection that is conducted for you by 1st Call Home Services.  Without a home inspection, what unknown or unplanned expenses might come up that could have been dealt with or planned for before taking possession of your new home, and how will that affect your budget?

Also consider the real costs involved in providing professional home inspection services. Before your inspection starts, costs have been incurred to get your inspector and equipment on site.  Additionally, consider that an inspection costing $350.00 up front that reveals the true condition of the property is less expensive in the long run than an inspection costing less that fails to properly document expensive repairs.

Prior to your inspector arriving, there are years of training, ongoing education, equipment costs, and maintenance on equipment.  Consider the salary of the inspector; the cost of doing business, such as office expenses, technology costs, legal costs, advertising, taxes and fees; all of which add up to a significant part of the inspection fee.

A few notes about a home inspection:

1.) An FHA appraisal is not a home inspection.

2.) A home inspection is not an appraisal.

3.) A home inspection is not a guarantee.

4.) Not all home inspections are the same.  
Some are conducted from a quantity standpoint,
and some are conducted from a
     quality standpoint, among other differences.
