HOME INSPECTION PRICING
Buying Real Estate in Los Angeles is a major decision. Making the right decision with your home inspection company is just as important. A poor inspection may cost you hundreds, or even thousands of dollars and many sleepless nights.
How our fees are calculated
Inspection fees are based upon square footage of the building(s) to be inspected. However, other factors can increase the cost. Additional pricing considerations may include the age of the building, raised foundations, basements, detached or out buildings, multiple heating/cooling units, travel distance etc. Contact us for a custom quote today.
What to look out for when shopping around – It’s more than just the price
Careful thought should be given to choosing an inspector. The report is a professional opinion based upon the experience and education of the individual actually performing the inspection. This opinion can cost you much more than the cost of a home inspection if it leaves out critical flaws or repairs needed.
Choosing the right inspector should be based on their qualifications, experience and most of all how comfortable you feel with the inspector. These criteria are far more important than a small difference between different inspection companies.
Additionally, any reputable inspector will welcome your questions and want you to be completely comfortable with his qualifications. Don’t hesitate to check an Inspector’s credentials. Ask about his specific education and experience related to building construction, renovation and maintenance.
