I think our home inspection was $400 and the house is about 3000sf.  Radon testing was included in the inspection as well.  Pest inspection was separate and free through terminex.  The only thing they both sucked on was missing the fact that we had squirrels in teh basement.  I dont know how to separate people missed it.. they said there’s evidence of them here, but they may or may not be here now.

I think ours was around $400, plus $50 extra for radon testing. A home inspection was required for our loan, but we would have gotten one anyways. Always money well spent!

It was $400 for the inspection. Then an extra $100 for water testing since it has a well and wasn’t connected to city water. The house was a single family detached and was 3100sq ft.

We had a few inspections done on different homes that luckily, we didn’t purchase. It was $375 for a 1900 sqft home, $300 for a 1300 sqft home (different inspector but he was much more thorough) and $700 for our 1400 sqft home (the only house we did go through with) but that included a sewer inspection, pest inspection and gas leak test.

Hmmm…we paid $100 for an inspection on our 2100 sq ft house.  It did include radon but no pest.

We also got a quote on the first house we were under contract for for a sewer/water/plumbing specific inspect in addition for $90.

I loved our inspection guy…he was fantastic!

We paid $450, which is high for our area, but the guy was incredibly thorough. He was there for 3 hours and gave us an 80-page report that we still refer to (we bought the house).

$250 (not including pest) and I think the water testing was just under $100 for a 1700 sq ft home

@Over the Moon:  we kept our report and refer to it ALL the time – its so detailed its unreal.  The minute I notice something in the house I go check the report to see what he noted and if he thought it was an issue.  For example…I about died when I saw a crack in the cieling…went to the report, he had noticed it, noted that it was due to normal “settling” of the structure and noted that it did not compromise the structural integrity…immediately put my mind at ease!

We paid $495 for a very detailed report which included pictures and maintainence recommendations on a 2400 sq ft single family detached home.  It included a pest report as well as a landscape detail (important if you live in a place with a lot of rain).  Our inspector was certified at the national and state level so I don’t know if that affects the pricing.

$200 for a 1400 sqft condo in MI.  I’ve been there 2.5 years and haven’t had any issues but I don’t think he really did a thorough job. I think he just walked around and tinkered with things!
