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 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.

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.

I had a very informative experience with Noxid Home Inspection. The inspector was on time and allowed me to shadow him while he performed his inspection. He was very thorough and offered insight on everything he inspected throughout his visit. I learned a lot and I will definitely recommend all my friends and anyone else buying a home in the San Antonio surrounding areas to schedule services with Noxid.

Joe provides valuable insights during my home inspection. In addition to a standard inspection, he was able to arrange a termite inspection and set up a water analysis in ther well water. This helped me avoid having to call multiple professionals myself. Pricing is fair and not unreasonable. Report arrived quickly by email the day following inspection...about 16 hour turnaround. Report included many photos. Would not hesitate to hire him again.

Mr. Dixon replied to our request for bidding within minutes. He was able to come out the next day and performed a VERY thorough inspection. Not only that, but he took the time to explain what he was doing and what he was looking for during the inspection process. Whenever he found an item of concern, he let us know on the spot. When completed, Mr. Dixon provided an excellent report of his findings. I would highly recommend Noxid Home Inspection Services.

Ryan was very thorough on the entire inspection. He took the extra time he needed to make sure every little spot was inspected and he did a great job of walking me through the repair recommendations as well. I never felt rushed and I appreciated him allowing me to be present for the entire inspection. Now I have peace of mind moving into my new home and I know what to expect. I highly recommend his work and this company.

Thank you so much for making my home buying process less stressful and being so reliable and thorough!
