What is the cost of a home inspection?
The price of a home inspection will vary greatly, depending on the size of the home, or added services such as a pool or a crawl space. Generally, home inspections can run from $300 for a small condo to $600+ for larger homes with added services. One thing to keep in mind is that many times a home inspection can pay for itself through the discovery of hidden conditions. Also, remember that a quality home inspector that goes beyond the required basics isn’t going to be the cheapest one out there!
Should I attend the inspection?
Yes, you’re welcome to come by the inspection any time, but you are strongly encouraged to attend at least the end of the inspection. The inspector will want to sit down with you and go over the findings from the inspection.
How long will the inspection take?
The answer to this depends on several factors, such as size of the house, age and whether or not there are added services ordered such as a pool or crawl space inspection. On average, an inspection in the DFW area will take about 3-4 hours.
