Understanding Your Home Inspection can help you understand what the inspection entails.  Knowing what systems and areas of house are inspected can help deal with deficiencies that may be discovered.  Most Professional Home Inspectors follow a Standard of Practice which identify what is inspected and also what not is inspected.

The Age of Home plus any Renovations can often be an indicator of the amount of Home Inspection defects that may be found.  The could range from Structural Deficiencies, Plumbing Deficiencies or Electrical Deficiencies.

The first question I am usually asked is what are my home inspection fees.  , we know that home inspection is a complex professional consulting service. It is a learned craft requiring equal parts technical knowledge and communication
skills. Home inspection is definitely not a commodity.
Our home inspection fees start at just over $400 for a single residential home. In our market, our fees are about 1/20 of 1% of the purchase price of a home. They are substantially less than most of the other fees involved in a real estate transaction, yet most would agree a home inspection is an essential element of buying or selling a home.
A professional home inspection provides incredible value and is unique in the speed with which the service is provided. Very few professional consultants can respond to a request in less than three business days, let alone complete an onsite inspection and provide a detailed technical report within that time frame.
Typical rates for home inspections in our area range from $150 to $250/hr.  A typical home inspection might include 1 1/2 to 2 hours on-site, 30 to 60 minutes of travel time and 1 1/2 to 2 hours to write the report.   Here’s another way to look at home inspection fees. When you take your vehicle into the dealer to get the oil changed, the labour rate usually over a  $100/hr.
You can look at travel time a couple of ways: On the one hand, we’re not providing any direct value for the client while traveling. On the other, it is a necessary part of delivering the on-site service, and the consultant cannot be doing any other work while traveling. Many professionals charge their full rate or a slightly discounted rate for travel time as a compromise. Most trades and service people charge $100-$150 an hour for a service call, typically used to determine what needs to be done and provide
a quote.
