Competitive Home Inspection Prices
How Much Do Our Home Inspections Cost?
Picking an inspector based solely on price is a risky proposition.
Some of our competitors chase the market. If they’re not busy, they’ll lower the inspection price. If they’re less experienced, maybe it’s important to be the cheapest. Or maybe if they jostle their schedule around a bit, they can “fit” an extra inspection into their day. At ValueGuard, we don’t chase the market. And surprise, while we’re rarely the least expensive, we strive to be competitive. After all, you probably didn’t choose your home on price alone.

*Apartment-style condominium inspection prices are priced lower because the exterior, roof and common areas are typically the responsibility of the condominium – homeowners association and therefore not included in the inspection.

Experts recommend against choosing an inspection company based on price alone!
A “low price” inspector may charge less because he needs the business (inexperienced) or because he takes less time per inspection (takes shortcuts) and can do more inspections per day. Choose wisely and consider more than price.
