APPLIED ETHICS HOME
"Precisely what you need… Now!"
All homes are unique and because of that an inspection fee varies. A home inspection fee is determined by the square footage of the home, number of: heating/cooling systems, electrical systems, bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens. Other factors are: is the home on a slab, crawl space, or basement? As you can see, there can’t be a “one price fits all”. The more information you provide, the more accurate your quote will be and the better we will be able to prepare for your home inspection.

*Condominium and Townhouses are less due to the limited scope of the inspection.
Owners of these homes own the inside of the structure only and we do not inspect the roof, attic, exterior (including stairs and walkways) or any other shared components that are owned by the Home Owner’s Association.
**One radon test canister is included in your radon test. The EPA recommends one (1) test canister per every 2000 sq ft. If the home is more than 2000 sq ft, two (2) test canisters would be needed to confirm radon levels.
**All inspection reports are emailed. If a hard copy inspection report is desired, a mailed report fee is $35.

If I can’t take the time to do it right, I’d rather not do it at all. An average home inspection takes approximately 2.5 to 3 hours to complete. I schedule a 4 hour for each inspection so I am never being rushed. My due diligence approach with my time in the office preparing your report will reflect what I do on site. Getting it right for you is my top priority. “Precisely what you need… Now!”™
