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.

We had a home inspection done for a home purchase. Scheduling was very easy and the inspection was completed within 3 days of contact. It was quite thorough, he explained everything to us. If we have any repairs made in the next 30 days he will come and re inspect for free. Would absolutely recommend to friends and family.

Midi was responsive, thorough, on time (that alone is worth five stars) and spent plenty of time to explain his findings. When I need a home inspection in the future I will only use Albion Inspection Services.

Midi was prompt and thorough. He went over the inspection in great detail and gave me some general home-ownership pointers. I appreciated the flash drive with both the pictures and the written report. I would highly recommend him to any first-time or repeat home buyers needing an inspection.

Gerald was responsive, had a great price and gave an extremely thorough inspection report. He uncovered a concerning pipe issue as well as other minor issues, provided recommendations for each item that needed to be remedied and sent a report super quickly. These are all things that are of utmost importance when buying a home! His inspection made me feel like I was buying my home with full information. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a completely thorough and by the book inspection.

This was my first home inspection/home buying experience. Midi was on time, early even! I contacted him on Friday and he was able to come out on Monday. He spent over two hours inspecting my home that is under 1500 sq ft. He was very thorough. Informed me of safety hazards, things that were currently wrong with the home and things that may potentially go wrong with the home. He was very knowledgeable and took around 45 minutes explaining what he had found using pictures and infrared imaging. He gave me a thumb drive of the report right then and immediately emailed it to my Realtor. He also offers to reinspect any work done within 30 days of the inspection. I highly recommend Midi!

My spouse and I were very nervous and a little confused on everything that goes into buying your first house. Justin was super fast at responding, offered a thorough explanation of our whole home inspection, and made us feel very comfortable and at ease. He is extremely knowledgeable as well and answered all the questions we had. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for an inspection for their home.

Jason was very thorough, friendly, and professional. He let us know what areas in our home needed immediate attention, and what things would probably need our attention at a later date. He was willing to come do an inspection on short notice, which was so helpful in our home buying process.

Darren was extremely kind, knowledgeable, and has great attention to detail. He noticed something the home owners had failed to include in their disclosures and really saved me headache down the road. Highly recommended for pre purchase home inspections. Darren was able to give me tons of solid advise on how to maintain different aspects of the home as well. *If you're going to have mold testing done, just make sure to ask for that ahead of time so he doesn't have to make two trips, my bad Darren!

Darren was phenomenal. I wasn't able to make the inspection (as I currently live out of the state), but he was willing to coordinate meeting times with my dad to see the house. I requested him super last minute, but he was flexible and able to make my extremely tight schedule. He even came back after a few days (after a nice heavy rain) to re-inspect any leaks or water damage in the basement. He went above and beyond to ensure my inspection was completed to the highest possible caliber. The report was extremely thorough and I love the addition of photographs. As a first-time home purchaser, I wasn't sure what to expect - he walked me through any questions I had and was willing to discuss options with me. I can't say enough amazing things about Darren. I did my shopping around for a home inspector, and I am confident I chose the correct one. I would highly recommend him and would definitely use him again!!

Gerry saved me from a disastrous home purchase. He was very thorough and found SO many things I would never have even known to look for. He could also get in on my tight schedule and got the inspection done and report to me in time to make sure I didn’t lose money. Thank you!
