- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We do not offer or recommend the same inspection for the same price regardless of the age/condition of the home. That is a strong sign of a weak home inspector who generally operates on volume and brags about having multiple inspectors. We are a professional firm and we quote pricing based upon our research of the home. If you simply want the cheapest price, you won't find it here. If you simply want the cheapest price, you are wasting your time and money.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I offer home inspections on three levels: 1. Basic which covers primary components for life expectancy in accordance with Florida Statute 468.8323 and also meets the insurance criteria for a 4-Point Inspection. 2. A complete whole house inspection of all components, detailed electric/HVAC, structure and roof. 3. A House As A System inspection which adds radon, Indoor Air Quality, grounds, sprinklers, energy and weatherization and ducts. This is a most comprehensive inspection.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Don't be fooled by low-ball prices. A thorough home inspection on a typical 3/2 should take about 2.5 hours plus report preparation. Consider the qualifications of the inspector - almost anyone can get a basic home inspection license but that does not mean they have any knowledge of a home. So you pay $200 instead of $350 - what did you get?
