It costs too much.
Well, it is an added cost, but let’s remember…you are buying a house! How many thousands of dollars are you going to spend on this investment? A home inspection typically costs $200-$700 depending on the square footage. What if the inspector finds an issue that will result in $10,000 of repairs? Well, the $400 inspection doesn’t seem like such a bad idea anymore.
It may hold up the closing.
An inspection takes about 2 hours. We email our reports the same day or next morning. Let’s just say that this part of the purchase process is probably the fastest step.
I can get an inspection later if I feel that I need one.
Yeah, you sure could, but it may be a little late. If you get the inspection before the purchase is final you may have a valuable tool for negotiations.
We love what we do. We inspect homes in some of the most beautiful cities in America: Seattle, Wenatchee, Chelan and more. Our home inspections are the best investment you’ll make in preparing to own a home. Right now we are getting a lot of calls for pre-listing inspections because sellers are aware of cautious buyers. We are happy to answer any questions about the inspection process.
