Home Inspection Price Frequently Asked Questions

1. When will I get my report?  The same day.
2. Why should I hire you?  I am very good at what I do.  Highly qualified and thorough inspections help you understand the condition of the house.
3. Why do I need an inspection report? An unbiased report identifying items that need repair or replacement can help you identify hidden costs and can be used by you and your Realtor® as part of the negotiating process.  
4. Why do you charge for _______? This is a consulting activity and the cost is related to the time required to inspect and write the report.  Each item on the price list correlates to the time required for the inspection.  

5. Do you sell or share my information? No! I charge enough to not need the revenue from selling your contact information.  I strongly recommend that you ask any inspector about this.  One company, Porch is in the business of selling your information and has bought up inspection software companies, support platforms, home warranty companies, and call centers in an effort to get buyer information.  They are hardly alone.  Some inspection companies have duplicated this model in-house and have sister companies that offer all sorts of services they make money on.

6.  Why do you do your add-on inspections in-house?  I believe that inspectors and their reports should be unbiased and only represent the interests of the client that hired me.  An inspector should not be in a position to make money from their recommendations.  I don’t offer repair, pool-maintenance, HVAC or other ancillary services under our company or a sister company.    Those would be a conflict of interest.  In the interest of disclosure GreenLight Inspections and Big City Pest and Wildlife are both my companies.  WDI inspections are performed by Big City Pest and Wildlife for licensing and insurance reasons.
