The Hidden Conflict Of Interest Home Inspectors Don’t Want You To Know About
If your inspector depends on continuing to get referrals from a real estate office, who’s interest are they actually going to be more concerned with?
Or the people they rely on for referrals in order to stay in business?
The overwhelming majority of real estate agents do put their clients’ best interests ahead of their own.
Not all, but most.
However, the fear of being blacklisted as a ‘deal killer’ is a very real threat in the minds of inspectors who rely on client referrals from real estate agents for their very survival.
An Independent Inspection Company Makes A Difference
One of the reasons Brothers was founded was to eliminate this conflict of interest in order to provide homebuyers with inspectors who are committed to delivering truly objective inspection reports that provide you with all the information you should have before closing on your new home.
While we have tremendous relationships with the top real estate agents (and mortgage lenders) all over Denver, our company does not depend on referrals from people inside the industry for a significant part of our business.
And that is critically important.
Because it gives our inspectors the freedom to focus solely on looking out for your best interests when they produce your inspection report.
Choosing a truly independent home inspection company can save you an enormous amount of money by making sure you get all the information you should have about a home… before you go to closing.
NOW… to answer the question regarding how much a home inspection costs in Denver.
The cost of a ‘basic’ inspection typically starts at around $300 or so with most well-known, reputable inspection companies.
NOTE: The actual cost of the ‘basic’ inspection can go up from there based on the square footage of the home, since that $300 starting price is usually based on homes of less than 1,000 square feet.
However, the ‘basic’ inspection does not include several of the most important items that most homebuyers want tested and inspected.
Most homebuyers choose to include the following additional inspections and testing:
- Sewer Scope
- Radon Testing
- Mold Testing
- Termite & Pest Inspection
- Water Quality
- Infrared Scan
Why Are These Additional Inspection Services Important?
Failing to include these additional inspections can leave you exposed to anywhere from $2,500 to over $20,000 in unplanned expenses for issues that could have been identified prior to closing on your new home.
The Typical Price Range For Inspections
Since most homebuyers choose to include the additional inspections and testing above, the actual cost of a typical inspection in Denver will range anywhere from $700 to over $1,200 depending on the size of the home.
