What does a Home Inspection Cost

There are many factors that will determine the cost of a home inspection.  

Below are the things that I take into consideration:


  1. The age of the home. The older the home the bigger my liability.
  2. The square footage of the home.​
  3. Is there an Evaporative cooler? This is an extra service because an evaporative cooler inspection is not required by the Arizona Standards of Practice.
  4. Billing escrow? 
  5. Paying by credit card? PayPal and Square Up both charge a service fee, which is added to the cost of the inspection.
  6. Are you a Veteran? I discount my inspection service 10 percent for all veterans.  Proof of status is required.

After the inspection is completed I will go over my findings, show you the pictures that I have taken and answer any questions you may have. Once the report is completed. I will email a copy of the inspection report is to you and to your Real Estate agent.  I will also be available to you, by phone, for any questions that might come up at a later date.  I use a state of the art reporting system that is user friendly and contains a summary a the beginning of the report.
