Termite inspection cost

A termite inspection is extra but well worth the price to know if there are conducive conditions for termites or were termites present. Most termite inspections are $120.00 and are performed by a third party. I can set up an appointment for the same time as the scheduled inspection.

Pool Inspection cost

It's important to know what services are extra; each home inspection company is different. When a swimming pool is present I have a third party inspect the pool. The reason is it puts my focus on the home, and I can go months without inspecting a home with a pool present. I want you to have the best, so I prefer a full time out the pool inspection. The company I use is fantastic. The average cost of there service is $150.00. When scheduling the pool inspection, I will provide you with a contact number.



What’s inspected by your Houston home inspector

The expenses of a Houston home inspection cost depend on whom you hire?

Expect to pay more for an experienced inspector. In my opinion, it’s money well spent to have a qualified inspector inspect the home you have an offer on.

How do I calculate the cost of the home inspection?

I charge by square footage and what year the home was built. Older homes cost more to inspect. The reason is a high percentage of the time there are more defects

Price by  square footage of the home.

Depending on the size of a home, the price will increase. The larger the square footage, the longer it will take your inspector to cover all required areas. The inspection that will be the most expensive for any home in the home buying market will be an older home combined with a vast amount of square footage. These types of homes over 4,000 square feet plus will take up a considerable amount of time, gathering all the details of the home systems. Typical for these types of homes to have over two air condensing systems, heating units, water heaters, electrical panels, and other areas. A custom detailed inspection report will take a considerable amount of time. The main conclusion is to expect a more significant expense when having these types of homes inspected.

Cost by the age of the home.

The age of the home will also determine the price. Older homes can slow down the home inspection process. The truth is that the older the house is, the higher the chances are that the home has more defects. Homes with more defects adds time to the inspection process and the report writing.

The average cost of my home inspections.

My average home inspection cost is about $350.00; these are homes above 2,000 square feet. My minimum home inspection fee is $275.00, no matter how small the house may be.

How I provide the fairest pricing in the home inspection industry.

I break my inspection prices down into different categories. All homes are not equal. Homes should be evaluated by how much time it may take to do the on-site evaluation and to produce the Report. That’s precisely how I price the house accordingly. For example, should a newly constructed home with the same square footage cost the same price? The time in a home and the report time should determine the home inspection cost. That’s why my newer homes are cheaper to inspect passing down the savings to the client as it should be. The harder I have to work, the more the home inspection cost should be. After being in the business for ten years as a professional home inspector, you know how to charge a fair fee.

I'm one of the few home inspectors that post prices right on the website.

I make it convenient to compare home inspection prices. Make sure to compare my services that are included in the inspection, and you'll see that I'm the most affordable home inspector in Houston, Texas. Like to share my home inspection price list.

You deserve experience

Please make sure the inspector you hire is experienced; that's the best advice I can give any home buyer.

Homes are expensive

With so much on the line, save yourself the headache; this is not the time to learn a hard lesson.

GAMBLING

Your gambling with a new home inspector that could end up costing you.

Detailed reports

The problem is if your looking for a high-quality Report, it’s not going to happen with a new home inspector. Let me put it to you this way; they're learning their job on your dollar.
Questions to ask before you hire that home inspection company.
Make sure they have a licensed from the Texas Real Estate Commission. My license number is 10393, and I've been inspecting homes full time since 2009. The lower the inspector's license number, the longer they have been inspecting homes in most cases.

Check out the inspector's report. See what type of detail is included. One of the best ways to evaluate a poor inspector to a great inspector. All the work and time is in the report if it's custom and very informative.

Find out if there are any special services are included with your general home inspection. See which home inspectors stand out from the rest. Including valuable services at no additional cost should figure into your final decision.

One of the most significant factors to determine what professional you are going to employ should be their experience.
Home-inspection-check-list should be completed before scheduling.

Info Boxes

These tips can really help you to limit return trips to the home by the home inspector.
You must have an executed contract on the home before scheduling a home inspection service.
All the utilities need to be on at the property.
The electrical panel needs to be accessible to your inspector.
All areas of the home should be accessible.
Attic access areas should be accessible.
Before scheduling make sure your realtor reaches out to the selling agent to make sure the home complies with this list.
