“How much” is often the first question a home buyer asks a home inspector. Asking the inspector about their qualifications, experience and how they get their business, should actually be the first questions. In home inspection, one size does not fit all. The size and age of homes vary. Some homes / condos can be inspected in 2 to 3 hours. Older, larger homes can take 5 or more hours. In addition to the actual inspection, the inspection report might take another 5 or more hours. If a thorough inspection and report takes anywhere from 6 to 10 hours, how "thorough" is the inspector who does 3 inspections & reports in one day?
Let's put home inspection fees into perspective: If you're buying an $800,000 house and the inspection fee is $700, that's less than .1% of the cost of the house! Most real estate agencies charge 3% to 6% to sell a home, that would be $24,000 to $48,000 for a $800,000 house. The cost of a home inspection is a bargain, even if you paid $1500 for the inspection, and most are less than half that.
