Buying a home may be the largest investment you will make in your lifetime.
A comprehensive home inspection in the SF Bay Area costs from $500 – $2500 depending on the size of the condo, townhouse, or home.
You may think this is one area where you can cut costs, but is that a good idea?
Cheaper Home Inspectors
Often in life, you get what you pay for.
Trying to save $100-$200 to inspect a million plus dollar property makes no sense whatsoever.
Inexperienced inspectors may not identify all the conditions in a house… which can possibly cost you thousands of dollars in after-the-sale repairs.
Our opinion… cheaper home inspectors often know less and do less, which is one reason why they cost less.
The most important quality to look for in an inspector is their experience.
Would you hire a handyman, who has no roofing experience to install a roof?
Would you hire a home inspector, who discounts their inspection fees and may not be certified to inspect a house that is being purchased for hundreds of thousands of dollars?
Cheaper does not always mean better.
The Unknown and ROI
Buying a home is an investment, like buying stocks… would you buy stocks without thoroughly knowing what you’re investing in?
The value of a home inspection is in the unknowns and the return on your investment.
