Home Inspectors?

Well, we finally are starting to see some movement on the offer we put in on a short sale and the sellers Realtor said it will be about a week.  I know it is still not final yet, but I am starting to think ahead to a home inspection.  We will have one done for our own piece of mind and to also know what we need to work on.  Do any of you have any recs for a home inspector in the NE suburbs? Also, how much do they typically cost?  Last one we had done we were living in North Dakota, and things typically cost less there, I believe it was around $200.  Thanks in advance!  

Re: Home Inspectors?

  • I've had awesome luck with Schuman Home inspections for both my buyers and sellers.  You can PM me for their info if interested.  They bring a computer and printer with and take pictures and you get everything, a very detailed report with photos of everthing they talked to you about.  Home inspections are typically about $300-350 and they base it off of square footage of the home.

     

  • Janell, I sent you a PM.

    We used Schuman and didn't have any problems with them. I wasn't home when the inspection was done, but my husband didn't have any complaints.

  • We are having one done tonight on our new house...I'll get his name and let you know if we were happy, etc.  

    Our Realtor set it up for us so I only know his first name right now!

  • We used Matthew Brown with HomeSight Inspections (952-201-2181) on the recommendation of our realtor. He was very thorough, took photos of everything, and provided us with an 18-page report. He went over everything with us at the house, and followed up with an electronic copy of the report via email that night. 

    We paid about $400, but the price of the inspection is based on the size of the home and our house is on the bigger side. When I bought my condo years ago, I think I only paid $175 for that inspection.

  • We used Hankey & Brown, and have recommended him to others, and all have been very happy with him. He enters everything on a laptop and prints out the results for you the day of the inspection. He also offered to stop by anytime after we moved in if we ever had mechanical questions about the house. They list their fees on their web site, they are based on home size.
