Well some people might try to do their own inspection. It’s not recommended, our Inspectors have taken extensive training and classes on each component of the home. There are several component’s in a home Even a trained Inspector has to keep studying too stay up to date on changes in the industry.
The average cost in our area is $300.00 Some company’s charge for the first hour then so much for every hour after that, We charge by the square foot $300.00 for home’s up to 2499 Sq. Ft. then $50.00 for every additional 500 Sq.Ft.
Depending on the size of the home and how many Inspectors are present. You can plan on 1 hour per 1000 Sq. Ft. But if 2 inspectors are present it will be a shorter time. Average time 2 to 3 Hours 1 inspector.
