“So, how much do you charge?”
“How Much Does A Home Inspection Cost?” Granted, this is usually the first question asked of us when we receive a phone call.
Point often overlooked, is that home inspection costs are not fixed and can vary. Not only does it depend on the region, size, and age of the house. But also, the scope of services and other factors.
Some of those factors that will affect how much a home inspection costs:
- Travel Time
- Size of the home, Age of the Home
- Detached Structures
- How hot or cold your local real estate market is
- How many inspectors are in your local area and how busy they are
- Ancillary services, such as mold, termite, moisture, radon, sewer, lead testing, etc.
According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (hud.gov), “A typical range might be $300-$500, but consider the value of the home inspection in terms of the investment being made. Cost does not necessarily reflect quality.” says HUD. HUD Does not regulate home inspection fees.
Angie’s List members report spending an average of $473.
According to Fix.com, the national average cost of hiring a home inspector is $500-700 (home inspection of a 2,500 sq.ft.house)
The price of a home inspection can range from $200-$1000. This range depends on the size and the type of home and the location. Larger homes in neighborhood areas will be on the higher end of the spectrum. A home inspection will need anywhere from two to six hours to complete.
Here at Top Notch Inspection Services, Inc., we base our pricing on several factors:
- Size (sq.ft.)

Any of these factors may increase or decrease the price.
