"We are so glad we found James for the inspection. He was very professional, extremely thorough and incredibally knowledgable in the field. We couldnt have been happier with the result. His education in construction management and experience in building homes is really invaluable. The faults he found would have been easily missed by any other inspector who doesnt have construction experience. This is our 5th home in last 15 years. We have seen in the past inspectors make deals with realtors to gain future business etc... Not with James, he is very honest to his profession.his report shows all facts with pictures..Best of all he gave us an extremy resonable price. We would recommend him to anyone who is looking to get home inspected by a true professional without breaking the bank:). If we had a chance to hire him again for home inspection,we would do it in a heart beat."

"Home inspections are a service but this experience was more educational. There was an excellent exchange of information that made getting to know the property an easy, positive and knowledgeable transition. The more questions I had the more answers he gave. This was not my first rodeo but it was the best! Friendly, knowledgeable and down to earth, that’s all you need. -CH Thomas "

"I hired CAI to do my inspection for the purchase of a new home in Westerville. Matt Keifer was my inspector. I have bought and sold 3 homes in two different states over the last two years, and have had the chance to see several different inspectors, both good and bad. Matt Keifer is, by far, the best inspector I have had the pleasure to work with. He is very personable but extremely professional and thorough. He looked at many things I wouldn't have expected to be part of a general home inspection. More importantly, he was able to give clear and easy to understand explanations of the issues he uncovered. At the end of the inspection I felt extremely comfortable that I knew exactly what condition my house was in. Following the inspection, Matt continued to be available and very responsive to my questions. I would absolutely hire CAI again and request Matt. "

"I didn’t have much time to get my inspection done before my one year walk through on my new build. I wanted someone unbiased to inspect my home before I was no longer going to be under my first year home warranty through my builder so I called Troy- he was highly recommended my area. Troy got right back with me and worked around my crazy schedule. Because of his attention to detail and his honesty, I was able to explain what needed to be done before I signed off on my builder paperwork. Troy saved me tens of thousands of dollars by catching major things the builder would have never told me about nor taken care of. I highly recommend Healthy Home Inspections if you want to truly protect your interests!"

"I can't say enough good about Jeffrey. I called him about 9:15 am and asked him if he can do a home inspection the same day at 10:30 am. I was under a lot of pressure as I had people meeting me there and my original inspector canceled at 9:10 am. Not only did he make it there by 10:20 am, he did a phenomenal job. He was very professional, and yet very friendly. He explained all my questions to my liking and understanding. I really could go on and on about his company. He checked out the entire house top to bottom. He also found things wrong with it that I had no idea about. You seriously can't go wrong when you hire him. Thank you Jeffrey."

"My family and I have been dealing with rats for the past year. Somehow they find their way in. We heard of Diligence through word of mouth. I called up the company and spoke with Trent. He was very professional and show deep concern about our issue. He showed up to our home the very next day. He did a thorough inspection of all 3 floors to try and figure out what level those suckers were making entry through. Within no time he had it all figured out. We have not had any rat issues since and now our 3 kids are able to sleep at night without any worries of those creepy little creatures scurrying throughout our home. Thank you so much Trent and Diligence. We are so thankful to receive your amazing business. We strongly recommend Diligence to solve any home issues or worries you may have."

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.
