Policy that a home buyer is accepting the property as-is when they sign the paperwork for it, and should therefore thoroughly examine and inspect the property before they finalize the purchase. One way to achieve this is to hire a home inspector.
The price of a home inspection can range from $175 to $600, and will require anywhere from one to six hours to complete.
Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
