How Much does a Home Inspection Cost?
A typical home inspection in Texas will cost anywhere from about $250 - $500. While this may sound like a lot of money to some home buyers – especially when added to all of the other expenses involved with purchasing a home, it is a small amount compared to the money that it could save you if any serious (or even a few small issues) are discovered during the inspection. The cost of a home inspection can be affected by various factors such as the size of the home, the age of the home, and the type of foundation.
As you shop around for a home inspector, you should not just look for the cheapest home inspection that you can find. There is a big difference between home inspectors in regards to knowledge, experience, thoroughness, report quality, etc. Often, inexperienced inspectors charge less than more established home inspectors because they need to do something in an effort to break into the market and get work. On the other hand, the more experienced, more expensive inspectors are often in higher demand and, thus, can charge more for their work and experience. Just remember, as in most things, you get what you pay for.
