Ariana N. says, "Great! Lou accommodated us on very short notice, arrived on time and did an extensive inspection of the house which we believe has saved us a lot of money. He was professional, thorough, and even expedited our report- turning it around the same day! Well worth the money. I will add this is a brand new construction and that many people advised us against the additional inspection, claiming it was a waste. They couldn't have been more wrong. In the end, the sponsor agreed to cover all the damages including but not limited to; water polling on the roof, a plumbing line preventing the oven from meeting the wall, replacing locks, and refinishing the floors. Thanks Lou!" Read more

Joe T. says, "I am absolutely thrilled with the work done by contractor NEIL. He painted three entire rooms in my home, created a custom 3D design preview, remodeled my kitchen, and installed new cabinets and appliances. His professionalism and friendliness made the entire process smooth and enjoyable. NEIL's attention to detail and commitment to quality exceeded my expectations. The 3D design preview was particularly impressive, providing a clear vision of the final result before the work even began. The kitchen remodel has transformed the space, making it both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The new cabinets and appliances installed are of high quality and have significantly improved the overall look and feel of the kitchen. I would highly recommend NEIL for any home improvement projects. His work is top-notch, and his approach is customer-focused. He truly goes above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction. Thank you, NEIL, for a job well done! Sincerely; Joe Tosto" Read more

Mary B. says, "Mr. Barnaby was a most helpful person as I was unsure of what I should do regarding my furnace and with winter upon us I was very worried. Mr. Barnaby calmed my fears and said he'd be at my home at 6pm! Mr. Barnaby arrived and almost immediatley diagnosed the problem! He explained a bit about how the furnace works and advised me of maintaining it. In just under an hour the furnace was up and running! He cleaned out the furnace which was in an awful state and he showed me how to do it! Mr. Barnaby is a most helpful, knowledgeable and kind man. I highly recommend Majestic Group Barnaby Mechanical and have put them in my home/address book! A thousand thanks Mr. Barnaby!" Read more

Valentina G. says, "Highly recommending hiring these guys! I hired them to take a look at my father's old house before selling and they walked us through every step of the way. Any question we had, they answered it. The report they gave us was highly detailed and covered the entire house. Because of the report that they gave us we were able to make the necessary repairs to the house before selling so that we could sell at a very profitable value. Their professionalism, knowledge, and patience was what made them stand out amongst the other people we hired. Will definitely be hiring them again when I am looking to buy another home and sell my current one!" Read more

Your Home Inspection questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does a home inspection cost in my area?

A home inspection costs $300 to $500 on average, depending on the property's size and age, location, services rendered, and if there are freestanding structures. Specialty inspections cost $100 to $300 more for testing things such as mold, asbestos, radon, lead, or termites.

Who pays for a residential home inspection?

The home buyer typically pays for the cost of a private home inspection. The buyer should hire a real estate inspector as soon as the seller accepts the offer. After the inspection, buyers may accept the house "as is," ask the seller to pay for repairs, renegotiate, or back out of the sale and forfeit the earnest money.

What do licensed home inspectors look for?

Certified home inspectors check the roof, foundation, ceilings, windows, attic, crawl space, fireplace, doors, decks and porches. House inspectors also cover the plumbing, heating, electrical, and air conditioning systems. Building inspectors only look at what is visible and accessible.

Some home inspectors offer specialty testing for mold and asbestos for an extra $100 to $300 on average.

What are home inspectors not allowed to do?

Home inspectors are not allowed to check for code violations, permits, determine the house's insurability or value, move furniture or appliances, condemn the property, issue a certificate of occupancy, or survey the properties boundary lines. Inspections also do not include fire and smoke detectors, hot tubs and swimming pools, alarm systems, and sprinkler systems.

How long does a home inspection take?

A home inspection takes 2 to 3 hours on average, depending on the house's size and age and if there are freestanding structures included. Property inspectors provide their final inspection report within 24 hours after inspecting.

Should you get a home inspection on new construction?

Yes, buyers should always get a home inspection on a new construction home. New homes are not always built to code and can have problems. Some buyers also get an early pre-drywall inspection to ensure the beams, posts, studs, insulation, and home systems are installed correctly.

Should I use a home inspector recommended by my realtor?

Hiring a home inspector recommended by your realtor may pose a conflict of interest. The inspector(s) may have a vested interest in helping the realtor close the sale, so they remain on the agent’s list of recommended inspectors.

How to find and hire a good home inspector?

To find the best home inspectors in your area:

  • Get at least three estimates from building inspectors to compare.
  • Ask for references from their past customers.
  • Verify their license and insurance.
  • Look for residential home inspectors certified with the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), or the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE).
  • Read reviews and check out their previous work on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask about their warranties and guarantees.
  • Ask for a contract in writing upfront.
  • Avoid making large payments upfront. Come up with a payment schedule for work completed.

What questions to ask a home inspector before hiring?

Once you have a shortlist of top-rated home inspectors, ask the following questions before hiring:

  • How long have you been in the property inspection business?
  • What types of homes do you inspect?
  • How many homes have you inspected?
  • What do you check? What don't you check?
  • How much do you charge?
  • Can I see a sample inspection report?
  • Can you provide me with a list of references?
  • Can I be present during the inspection?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How long will the inspection take?
  • Can you provide me a written estimate?
  • Do I pay after the inspection? What payment methods do you accept?
  • What do I need to provide to get started?

What questions to ask a home inspector during the inspection?

Once you've read home inspector reviews and hired a professional, ask the following questions during the inspection:

  • Do any areas need a follow-up inspection?
  • What are your biggest concerns about this house? How much would it cost to fix?
  • Is there anything critical I need to fix before moving in?
  • What would you fix if you were buying this house?
  • Are these issues normal wear and tear?
  • What else could go wrong?
  • Is the roof in good condition?
  • Do any fire, water, health, or safety hazards exist?
  • Are the trees on the property a potential hazard?
