I own several properties and my tenants were frantic and so was I after several companies were ignorant and just not thorough. We had a heat treatment done with K9 inspections before and after. I can’t explain the difference in service that ODIN Pest provided versus the other guys. You feel like you are a VIP patient that is getting care from a world class physician when the team from ODIN handles the issue. This would be my best analogy. The issue is resolved and I can’t see how the other company would have done it.

I didn't actually get to go through w the extermination, bc the inspector said he couldn't find anything BUT this team was AMAZING to work with. INCREDIBLY responsive, very kind, and very helpful. Bed bugs are a pain in the butt and super stressful, and Bugged Out really treated me like a human and made my concerns feel heard. I would highly recommend!

Although I paid an extra $50 for my inspection it was worth every dime. I had scheduled Zack for an early inspection on a Thursday morning and he was their bright and early before me or my agent. When I arrived at the home he was already on the roof conducting his inspection, he immediately came down and introduced himself. He is extremely polite and very informative. My agent wanted me to book an inspection the last minute, since there where multiple offers on the property with his inspector but my husband thought that was a bad idea so I didn't expect to get an inspector to come out the very next day but luckily Zack made it early the next morning. I highly recommend Zack, if you hire him you won't be disappointed and don't be afraid from his price if he's a bit more then other inspectors because believe me his service is worth more then what he is asking especially after you realize hidden problems that you never knew existed in a property that is fully renovated . Good luck to his company and i wish there were more companies out their like his.

The home inspection was unbelievably thorough. I had a home inspection before and it was just 2 pages with check boxes. Mill River Inspections was a 46 page report with photos and recommendations. Mill River was also moderately priced in comparison to the other inspectors. Would highly recommend Mill River.

We hired Bob to do a home inspection on our first home purchase. His prices were very reasonable compared to other companies I spoke with, and from our first interaction I felt confident in his abilities. Not only was he friendly and professional, but he was very knowledgeable about the different elements within the home and put our mind at ease with all of our questions. His reports were thorough and detailed, including pictures and notes so that we are going into this buying experience knowing what we need to as a Buyer. We felt he took his time and didn't rush through the process, allowing us to take a second look at some items and ask any questions we needed to. It was a very positive experience and I would recommend Do-Rite Property Inspections to anyone, especially those who are brand new to the home buying process.

I have bought multiple homes and hired different home inspectors to get the job done. KJ by far is the best one I came across and I will surely be using his services going forward. His price is very reasonable as well and send you the report in timely fashion.

I had assumed that hiring a competent home inspector before I purchased my home will guarantee me peace of mind, but I was doubly shocked when my husband and I discovered major issues with our water pipes, plus the water heater was seriously malfunctioning. Being new to the area we really didn't know who to call until our neighbour recommended 1 Stop Plumbing and Drainage. The experience was awesome. The company did a complete overhaul of our plumbing and everything now works as good as new. Thanks, 1 Stop Plumbing and Drainage.

My cousin recommended Mark when we were purchasing our first home. He ended up completed a home inspection for two houses for us. He was very insightful and thorough with both inspections. He found three things within our now home that would have been a burden on us but because he pointed them out the previous owner agreed to fix them. I would definitely recommend him.

When we were looking for an inspector for our first house most of the places we called were not available for over a week or didn't even reply to our calls or emails. DenCia responded right away. All within one weekend we had our inspection appointment and our report. We were very happy that the inspector found the issues he did, we were able to get some money off for repairs and now we're happy in our new house! Thank you!

I found Ken on line among hundreds of home inspectors in NY. What called my attencion in his site ( Mercury) was the fact that he was the only one that had a sample of his reports. He's great! We set a visit in the property, and he warned me that he would need about 3 hours to do the job. After 1 hour the broker ( rude as hell) decided to close the property and Ken could not finish his work. Ken had no problem to come back 2 days later without any extra charges and finishes his job. His report is fantastic and as the house was winterized Ken gave a discount as he could not check the plumbing and eletric systems. Ken is honest, reliable and professional. Gil Malamut

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a home inspection?

    A home inspection is a visual inspection performed by a trained professional to determine the condition of a home’s main elements. The inspection usually takes several hours, during which the professional takes multiple photos and notes, tracking information for a final report. After the inspection, the pro will create a printed report, complete with photos and detailed information, summarizing the condition of the house. A home inspection is often used by potential home buyers prior to purchase to determine if there are larger issues (such as dry rot or a faulty foundation) that are not immediately visible to the untrained eye but that would cost a lot of money to resolve. Home inspections are also used by real estate agents and home sellers to address any concerns before putting a home on the market. Longtime homeowners can also schedule a home inspection to get a snapshot of their current home condition and identify any issues that need to be addressed. A home inspection is not a legal document that can be used for divorce or estate settlements, nor can it be used to secure loans or mortgages.

    How do you find a good home inspector?

    A home inspection should tell you the true condition of a home. A competent home inspector closely inspects your home’s structure and foundation, looks for termites and signs of problems like mold, checks the wiring to ensure it’s in good condition, and investigates the HVAC system, among other items. To find a good home inspector, first research whether home inspection is licensed in your area; not all states require licensure.

    If there is no regulatory body that licenses home inspection in your state, there are other ways to make sure you are hiring a trustworthy professional. Carefully look into the person’s reviews and ask for references. Ask if they are committed to continuing education, and whether they are active members in any reputable home inspector organizations. Some organizations that recognize and/or certify home inspectors are the American Society of Home Inspectors, National Association of Certified Home Inspectors, and American Home Inspectors Training. Don’t be shy about asking to see credentials and licensing.

    What should be included in a home inspection?

    A complete home inspection involves a visual investigation of all major elements that make up your home. A home inspection is a vital part of buying or selling a home to ensure you’re not accidentally buying a termite-infested home or one with major structural defects. Paying for an inspection before purchasing a home can save you a lot of money in the long run. The national average home inspection cost is $310, with prices ranging higher or lower based on your location and the square footage of your home. After performing a walk-through inspection, the pro should provide you a printed report — complete with photos and recommendations — detailing what’s in good condition, what would benefit from minor repairs, and what needs immediate attention. Home inspection pros know how to spot trouble areas, but they’re not licensed contractors, electricians or plumbers, so they may suggest you hire a licensed pro to address specific problems. Here are the main components that a home inspection covers:

    • Home structure
      • Foundation, grading and drainage, roof covering, roof structure, interior and exterior attic walls, ceilings and floors, interior and exterior doors, windows, stairways, fireplace and chimney, porches, balconies, decks, attached carports, and crawl space.
    • Electrical
      • HVAC system, heating equipment, cooling equipment, ductwork and vents, fixtures and switches, branch circuits, receptacles, service entrance and panels.
    • Plumbing
      • Water heater and equipment, drains, waste systems, vents, and plumbing fixtures.
    • Appliances
      • Garage door openers, garbage disposal, dishwasher, exhaust range, range hood, bathroom exhaust fans, cooktop, oven and microwave.

    How much does it cost to get a house appraised and inspected?

    Home appraisals and home inspections both assess your home and provide a report summarizing the condition or value of your home based on key measurements. Unlike a home inspection for the sale of a property, a home appraisal is used for loan applications, property value assessment for sales or settlements (divorce, estate, etc.), and taxes and insurance. If you’re having your home appraised for lending purposes, you’ll likely need a state-certified appraiser, so be sure to your research their credentials. Nationally, the average cost for a home appraisal is $340.

    If you’re buying or selling a home, having a professional home inspection can be an invaluable tool for price-setting and negotiation, as well as learning what repairs are necessary. The national average home inspection cost is $310, ranging higher or lower depending on the inspection company, your location and the size of your home. Other factors that can affect cost are additional inspection services and pathogen testing. Here are some examples of average home inspection costs in various parts of the country:

    • Home inspection in New York City: $425 or more.
    • Condo inspection in New York City: $200 or more.
    • Home inspection in Central Texas: $250 for homes up to 2,000 square feet.
      • $275 for homes from 3,001-4,000 square feet.
      • $300 for homes from 4,001-5,000 square feet.
      • $325 for homes 5,001 square feet and up, plus 10 cents per additional square foot.
    • Home inspection in Los Angeles: $199-$299 or more.

    How long does it take to do a home inspection?

    On average, you can expect a standard home inspection to take two to three hours. Your house size can affect inspection length, as can requesting additional services such as sprinkler system inspections, outbuilding inspections, radon testing, crawl space inspections, or pool house inspections. During the home inspection, the professional will be taking photos and looking in and around all parts of your home. The inspector will then compile a report that may be more than 20 pages. You should receive this report back within a few days to a week. The report should detail everything from minor imperfections and maintenance recommendations to major defects that need to be resolved as soon as possible, like structural failures or a leak in the basement. Your report should include photos and clearly outlined information about all major elements inspected, as well as recommendations for next steps.
