Naturally, it takes more time and effort to physically inspect, evaluate, and write a report on a 3,000 square foot or a 5,000 square foot home than it does for a 1,500 square foot home. And a home that has been in place for several decades has usually experienced at least a few repairs or alterations to the interior and exterior. The elements take a toll on virtually any building material; sometimes repairs to the building are of excellent quality materials and workmanship, and sometimes they are of inadequate quality. Our home inspection pricing is based on the size of the home, as well as the home’s age; and features such as an extra garage, finished or unfinished basement, swimming pool, or outbuildings. If you are unable to obtain the information about the square footage and age of the home, we can most often find that and other valuable information online at the local county tax assessor’s office; or at the National Association of Realtors website.
