Question: How much does a home inspection cost?
There is no set price for a home inspection because every home is different. Prices also vary based upon the region, square footage, type of foundation, the age of the home, sprinkler systems, pools ect. For example, a home inspection price in Killeen, Temple, Belton, Harker Heights, or Copperas Cove Texas may not be the same price as a home inspection in Austin or Dallas Texas.
A multi-inspector company will typically cost you more than a one man inspector company due to the fact of More Overhead Costs.
You can typically expect to pay a starting price from about $275 to $450 for a home inspection depending on the certain factors as stated above.

Question: How long does a home inspection take?
A typical home inspection usually takes anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours (sometimes longer) depending on the size of the home and the property condition. For example, a newer well maintained property built in 2018 is not going to take as long as a neglected foreclosure property built in 1975 which will almost always take longer.
