Don't Omit A Home Inspection
Whether you're a first-time home buyer, real estate agent, or selling a home, it's insanely beneficial to schedule an inspection with a certified, licensed home inspector in Maryland. It's a known concept that people who avoid asking the right questions and getting familiar with potential issues in any major financial decision can leave themselves open to backfire that could make the situation unbearable. This applies to home inspections especially. With an inspection from a certified professional home inspector, you wont have to leave future costs and fees to chance, they'll make sure you're made aware of problems you didn't think existed.
Let's Get To the Dollar Signs... Average Cost?
Your average home inspection in Maryland with us will cost about $450. However, your average home inspection price ranges between $330 and $525 based on the size, type, and age of your property. At the lower end, you may pay just $300 for a very small condo, or up to $600-700 for a large single family home.
In Maryland, home inspectors generally check for these systems and components of each home, look for potential flaws or issues, necessary repairs/replacements, and deferred maintenance.
- The interior/exterior finishes
- Plumbing systems
- Electrical systems
- HVAC systems
- Kitchen and Laundry appliances
- Roof (and Attic, if accessible)
- Basement and Foundation
- Fireplaces (if present and accessible)
- Much more...
Hold On! There's More!
However, some services are generally not included within the typical scope of a general home inspection, and may carry additional fees when scheduled with a home inspection. These services are just a few examples of extra services that may be scheduled in addition to a home inspection;
- Termite inspections
- Radon testing
- Asbestos testing
- Mold testing
- Air Quality Testing
- EMF Testing (Check out or previous blog post on the dangers of EMF)

An inspector may or may not make suggestions that point towards utilizing one of these services.
Sure, Cheap is Best... But Not With Inspections
