Buying a home is a big investment. Many people consider pricing when choosing a home inspector because they already have spent or are spending a lot of their money on the home they are buying.
However it is not a wise decision to choose an inspector based on price alone. The cheapest inspector will most likely not give you a quality home inspection. They are cheap because they spend very little time at the home and treat the inspection process more as just a formality rather than a true examination of the home. They are often referred to as run-through inspectors because of how fast they fly through the home.
These inspectors often miss very important items that you should have been aware of after the inspection and before closing. With such a big investment at stake it is important not to choose the cheapest inspector.
The flip side of this is not always the right choice either - just because an inspector is the most expensive does not mean they are the best. You must be an educated buyer when choosing an inspector and ask them about factors such as:
Years of experience
Number of homes inspected
What the inspection includes
Type of report provided
We hope you are successful in finding a home inspector that provides you a quality home inspection at a reasonable cost.
