4 factory’s to the cost of a home inspection

A home inspection cost depends on 4 factors. The company that provides the inspection, age, location and size of the home. Every home is different so that is why these factors come into play when it comes to the home inspection cost. Here is another post on the cost of a home inspection that’s worth reading about home inspection cost. Now let’s look into these 4 factors a little deeper.

The bigger the company the higher the cost

The Company

When searching for a home inspector, the first step is to find a home inspection company. There are two main types of home inspection companies: those that employ multiple inspectors and have high overhead costs, and those that have only one or two inspectors and lower overhead costs. The former tend to be more expensive, while the latter tend to be less expensive.

If you want to keep the cost of your home inspection to a minimum, choosing a smaller home inspection company is key. This will help you save money without jeopardizing the quality of the service. Before hiring a home inspection company, be sure to read reviews of the company online and make sure that they are licensed and insured.

The Age Of The Home

If you are looking at an older home I would be prepared to pay a little extra. The older the home is, the longer it takes to inspect it and write the report. With older homes that has never been renovated they are usually not up to today’s standards and usually will have more defects. Extra fee usually come into play on homes built before 1980.

The Location Of The Home

The location of the home  you are looking to buy is another factor that can affect the cost of a Edmonton home inspection.. Some companies charge by the kilometer. Every kilometer they travel you are charged for it. Other companies have a set radius that they service and if you are inside that service radius, the travel cost is free. To keep the cost of your home inspection down, try to find a company that has a service radius that includes your homes location. That way your cost of a home inspection is at an affordable price

What Size Is The Home

This is another factor that will usually cost extra when you are buying a home. If you are looking at a larger home, that’s when the extra fee will be added. Some companies has their home square footage set to 1500 square feet , whereas, some have it at 2000 square feet. You’ll want to look for the company that has the highest square footage. That way you can keep the cost of the home inspection as low as possible. Valler’s set size is 2000 square feet.

 In conclusion, the cost of a home inspection in Edmonton can vary depending on these factors. On average, home inspections in Edmonton can range from $300 to $600+, with larger homes and older homes typically costing more. It is important to shop around and compare prices from different companies to find the best deal on a home inspection. But keep in mind cheaper is not always better.
