Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The number one standard when I price an inspection is the size of the home. Other factors that may influence the fee are multi-family homes, foundations (basement, crawlspace or slab), age, # of garages. Typical, the fee for a single family home under 2000 sq. ft. of living space with a full basement and garage would range from $350 to #375. Ancillary services are an added fee. These include radon gas test, $100 (with inspection), WDI inspection $35 (with inspection), Water quality testing start $80 for bacteria testing. Call for other water test pricing.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I received my Home Inspector license in September, 2008. Since then, as a requirement of the licensing, I receive 24 hours of continuing education training every two years. I am also a member of InterNACHI, the largest home inspection association in the United States. Through my membership in InterNACHI, I receive an additional 12 hours of CE a year. Membership in InterNACHI is not required but I find it valuable resource in my business.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I recently did an inspection for a couple buying their first home in Troy, NY. The couple had limited funds but the husband was not adverse to doing some work on the home. I found major defects in the basement of the home, primarily with moisture entering the basement. There were structural and environmental issues present. Cost to repair the basement was significant. After receiving the Inspection Report the couple backed out of the purchase. Several months later the couple contacted me, they found another home in Schenectady, NY. I found this home in much better shape than the first one. Although there was work that needed to be done, it was not overwhelming. Although the couple was initially disappointed when the first home purchase fell through,they were thankful that I saved them from a money pit and that they were able to find a much better home.
