Standard "Hercule Poirot" Home Inspection

What will a home inspection cost?

For any previously occupied home (over 1 year old), prices will vary but most houses will fall in the $500 range. Repair costs ranging from a few hundred to several thousands of dollars are frequently identified in the course of an inspection. We are not permitted by law to provide estimates of cost for repairs. This gives you, the buyer, the information you require to proceed, renegotiate, or walk away from the deal.

Should I be there?

I prefer it if you come along. That way I can show you what I find and you have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. If your Realtor tells you not to show up until the last hour, don't listen - the best way for you to understand the condition of the house is to be there! If you can't be there, that's fine. I can do the inspection and send you the report after.

How long will it take?

It depends on the size of the house, what I find, and how many questions you have. Most inspections take about 3 to 4 hours, but there is no time limit. I will spend as much time as necessary to make sure you have the information you need. Some inspections last 5 hours, a few have been as short as 2½ hours.

What do I get?

The report will include identified deficiencies along with recommendations for major items. You will usually receive the report the same day. It is a narrative report, which includes digital photographs, and it is clear and easy to follow. In addition, I will be available to you as a free consultant for the next year in the event you have any questions or concerns.

Who else has access to the report?

No one. The results are completely confidential. We will not reveal the results of your inspection to anyone. In other words, you are in control of the information and may use it as you see fit.

How do I book an appointment?

Figure out a couple of times that work for you and when you can get access to the house, then call us at (403) 874-2143. We can usually set up a convenient time within 48 hours of your call.
