"Charlie was great - very friendly, helpful, and professional. He was able to set up an inspection on short notice and completed a very thorough inspection of the home. After the inspection, he walked us through the inspection report, answering any questions we had and showing us any areas of concern (and explaining how concerned/unconcerned we should be about them). He also recommended a few fixes. That same day, we received a complete inspection report, with high quality pictures and descriptions. Would highly recommend to anyone needing a home inspection."

"Steve was able to get our inspection done in the same week we called, he had a day open up due to rescheduling, and fit us in. He was very professional, punctual, and answered any questions we had. He took his time, did a thorough inspection including pictures of everything. His inspection lasted about 3 hrs for a 3000 sq ft home. "

"My fiancé and I just received an accepted offer on our new home and had a very small window of time to complete the home inspection. I was very nervous about what inspector to hire as some don't have the experience necessary to conduct a thorough inspection. We hired David and could not be happier about that decision. Not only does he have an amazing price but he did such a thorough inspection. Being first time home buyers we don't know a lot about homes but David took the time to explain what he was looking for, how to use everything properly, and for the issues he did find he explained to us how they should be corrected. He gave us a well organized report less than 24 hours later that included the issues that were found along with pictures as well as how we should go about fixing those items. I will absolutely be suggesting David to all of my family and friends. "

"Buyer's Edge was extremely fast. They were the only ones who could get me in next day. Our inspector was early and surprisingly knowledgeable. For being our first home inspection we learned way more than we thought we would. Don't hesitate to hire Buyer's Edge. Report was to us same day and there were in contact with all parties so there was no confusion during the entire process."

"When it comes to buying a home, the "home inspection" part of the process is about the last thing that was on my checklist. But quickly, there we were, with a home we wanted to buy, with our realtor telling us there were "multiple offers" breathing down our necks, and we had to confirm that the house we wanted to buy was, in fact, solid. Our experience with Kris and Skeleton Key was exceptional. Kris was an absolute pro, and did a thorough vetting of our prospective new home and gave us the confidence to move forward with the sale. Don't let his scruffy appearance fool you—the guy is an engineer by trade. He knows his stuff. Choose another inspector at your own peril."

"I can not express my gratitude enough for the attention to detail and explanations Mark provided. Other home inspectors quoted outrageous prices and said that the inspection would be complete in 1 1/2 hours. (FYI not possible!) Mark's prices were well under the other quotes and he provided more than the others with a thorough inspection taking about 3 1/2 hours explaining everything to me and giving helpful advice. He is very honest and knowlegable!! Definitely would recommend him to everyone!"

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.
