Home inspection costs will vary depending upon many factors, including the home’s location, the Home Inspector’s capabilities, the size of the home, and more. On average, you can expect to spend $275-$300 for a home inspection on a 2,500 square foot house.
Because of the variance in home inspection costs, it is important to get an estimate from your professional home inspector before the project begins and agree on a price. Some home inspectors charge by the size of the property (number of square feet). Others charge by the hour. Most charge a flat fee plus additional fees for radon, mold, or other tests.
Be sure to understand what you’re getting from your home inspection. Generally, it’s best to be as thorough as possible, but as with any aspect of home buying or selling, you should understand what you get from your investment. Don’t over pay a home inspector, or purchase an unneeded service.
