Inspection Pricing

I will be honest with you.  I will not post prices on the internet.  Why, you might ask?  It is real simple.  Not every home is the same.  Some may post a price based on the square footage of a home, and they will be out of business in a short while.  A 1,500 sq ft home built in 2006 is vastly different than the same sized home built in 1906.  The older home may have been "remodeled" by owners 3, 4 or 5 times over a century.  This could mean un-permitted additions, handyman electrical upgrades, and Uncle Bob's special plumbing repairs.  Those all take extra time and extra care to inspect.

There are also differences in type of property to be inspected.  Is it an apartment style condo?  a stand alone townhome?  a single family home with additional mother-in-law kitchen?  Are there detached shops or garages?  My point is:  Not all homes are alike and a true professional will not treat them the same.

Home Inspection is not a commodity.  You can buy a Diet Coke in thousands of places.  It is always a Diet Coke and price does not change the taste.  There is a difference between "cheapest" and "best value".  Home Inspection is a highly technical skill.  It takes ongoing education, expensive tools, and constant honing of the craft.

I only perform a single inspection per day.  I do not try to squeeze in 3 or 4 - $199 special inspections.  I spend more hours inspecting and more time writing the report.  I will not rush or skimp on an inspection.  Your purchase, as well as my reputation and livelihood, are on the line.

If you would like a price quote for your inspection, please call me directly at (253) 241-0602 or use the text or chat functions on the home page of this website.  I will ask a number of questions and be happy to give you a proper price for your inspection.  It may be higher than other inspectors, it may be less. 

In closing, if you are just looking for the cheapest inspection possible, please call someone else.  I am sure they will be able to fit you in after they get off work or on their days off.
