overqualified - not overpriced

Real Estate Inspection Pricing Education

Are you looking to hire an Inspector that is new to the business? How about a part-time or Groupon Inspector? OF COURSE NOT!! Everyone has to get started somewhere, but do you really want it to be on your potential dream home? You should WANT and DEMAND the best inspection available in the industry today. If you are a comparison shopper, please try and resist the temptation to allow pricing to be your major concern. Bargain Inspectors are typically inexperienced newcomers, or side-jobbers, without justification to charge clients the market fee for their services. Consider how much you are paying for your potential dream home and calculate out what percentage the inspection fee is? You will find that our inspection fees are a very small percentage of the actual selling price. In the Real Estate Inspection industry, you really do get what you pay for! A single defect missed by your "discount" Inspector could easily cost you 100 times what you saved. More importantly, in the event of a missed safety issue, you could lose your entire home or even your life. Keep in mind, the price difference between the "Best Inspector" and the "Worst Inspector" is just a few hundred dollars.  


Pricing in the Real Estate Inspection industry is based primarily on experience, qualifications and time. While there are always going to be additional variables that factor into pricing, including location of the Structure, age of the Structure, square footage of the Structure, type of Foundation, type of Roof, number of HVAC Systems, etc., you will find that our prices essentially reflect the value of our services to you and your future, which are unparalleled in the inspection industry today. We offer the most thorough and comprehensive inspections and reports, as well as superior customer service, which includes lifetime consulting. If you are looking for the best possible inspection available in the Real Estate Inspection industry today, I can assure you... WE ARE THE CLEAR CHOICE!


There are many different degrees of inspections and Inspectors, so please don't make the mistake of thinking all Inspectors and their inspections are the same, because I can assure you, we are all VERY DIFFERENT. Different Inspectors have varying qualifications, experience, equipment, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. I perform (1) inspection per day, that’s it.  I devote the entire day to advising you of the condition of one of the biggest financial investments you may ever make in your lifetime. Most Inspectors try and perform (2), (3) or even (4) inspections per day, concentrating on volume and not quality. Unfortunately, with traffic, travel time and unforeseen variables, this leaves approximately (2) hours per inspection. It is impossible to perform a proper inspection in (2) hours. Our average inspection time on a 1500 square foot home, is approximately (5) hours.  


The best analogy I can give you regarding "QUALIFICATIONS / EXPERIENCE / PRICING" in the Real Estate Inspection industry would be:


YOUR NEW HOME  :  MAJOR SURGERY


If you had to have major surgery, would you choose a cheaper, less experienced surgeon that has performed only a handful of surgeries, or would you choose the slightly more expensive surgeon with the most qualifications and experience that has been performing major surgeries for almost 30 years? The obvious choice would be the surgeon with the most qualifications and experience. 


Whether you are purchasing a property valued at $200,000 or $10,000,000, I challenge you to find the Inspector with the most qualifications and experience to advise you of the condition of one of the biggest financial investments you may ever make. Remember, when purchasing a property, you only get one shot at the inspection process.
