Honesty About Home Inspection Costs 2018-06-11T17:32:13-04:00

Recently I was doing research to determine what type of content visitors to my website were looking for. I checked out trending topics to see what conversations were happening in the home inspection industry, and spotted something disconcerting.

It seems one of the most in-demand pieces of information is around home inspection costs. I understand why, of course. Homeowners looking on line are more apt to comparison shop for these sorts of services. They also want to make sure they’re not getting ripped off, and are paying a fair price. I’m a consumer too, so I understand these concerns.

Let me be open and honest about the cost of a home inspection: The price is mobile (within reason), and depends on many factors. Size of the house, layout, age, complexity of certain systems, etc. Asking the price of a home inspection is much like asking the price of a house without providing details.

I’m sure consumers understand that, too. As a Registered and Certified Master Home Inspector I’m not selling a cookie-cutter service that’s the same every time. Some houses are small, some large; some have easy access to areas and others require considerable manoeuvering to navigate in tight spaces.

The best way to get an idea of home inspection costs for the home you’re buying or selling is to contact me. This isn’t so I can harass or hard-sell you, it’s because until I know pertinent details I can’t price your home inspection job.

Bruce completed two of our inspections, before we moved into our home, we truly appreciated the thoroughness of his report and the details he covered, and the advice presented in the report! Would definitely recommend him to family and friends!!

We are very happy with our inspection report from Bruce. He was punctual, thorough and included lots of pictures with recommended timelines for repair. With details from his report we were able to have the sellers agree to repair a problem before closing. A problem we probably would've missed and had to pay thousands for down the line. I would recommend BLT to family and friends.

Bruce more than exceeded our expectations of a home inspector. He reflected a high level of knowledge in his field. He was punctual and had the time management skills and ability to meet our deadline on time. We would not hesitate to recommend BLT Home Inspections to any of our friends.

Bruce did a great job with our home inspection. I work in the home and property management business and I've seen many issues that arise in the home. I felt that Bruce was spot on with his identification of the status of items on the home inspection checklist. His report was very well written and packed with great, well explained images. I will use his report as my list of 'things to do' as soon as we take possession of the home.
