"Deon was amazing! He was very thorough and went through house in a timely manner. He communicated quickly and was able to squeeze us in a few days. After he completed the inspection he took the time to go through the report with us over the phone. We bought a home about 8 years ago and the inspector just sent a report and went about his way. Deon, took some time and had a phone call with us to explain his findings and suggested how important the repairs were. I would recommend him to anyone! Definitely very happy with his service!"

"Alan was prompt, professional, courteous, amazing and very thorough! He was very knowledgeable. He event talked to the builder with me about some issues with the home and I am sooo thankful that Alan found the issues and had my back! I was able to walk away from the deal because of difficulties with the builder and then not wanting to fix the issues that Alan found. Thank you Alan for giving me excellent customer service and having my best interest in mind! I would definitely recommend Alan to anyone needing a home inspection and I will be using his services again to buy my new home! Give Alan a call! You could possibly save thousands of dollars and avoid lots of headaches in your future! You will not regret it! Thanks again Alan!"

"My wife and I are considering finalizing the purchase of a new home, and despite the builder's advice that it shouldn't be necessary to have a 3rd party inspection of the home, we went ahead and engaged the services of Abel Eye Inspections, and we are very glad we did. Charlie Ragsdale from Able Eye performed a very thorough inspection of the major Systems in the home – Structural, Electrical, Heating, Plumbing and Appliances. He noted several deficiencies which were unknown to us, especially with the roof. Not all inspectors actually walk the roof, but Charlie did and took several photographs which clearly illustrated faults in roof sealing and flashing and additional flaws which would have allowed water to penetrate into the home. In addition, he thoroughly documented deficiencies in drainage, sealing of windows, door functioning, excessive radiation from the microwave oven, missing fire-rated caulking in the fireplace, and the need for window-opening limiting devices on the second floor for child safety. He also performed a thermal scan which found a leak in the Air Conditioning system. We presented our builder with Charlie's list, and will not close on the home until these issues have been remedied. In summary, Charlie is a very knowledgeable home inspector who knows where to look and who takes his time in doing a very careful job identifying and documenting deficiencies that potential buyer's should know about, in order to make an informed decision on whether to buy or close on a home, and we highly recommend his services to you.

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 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.

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.
