Fees
Fair Price:
*We know our prices are not the cheapest you will find, but the cost of our quality service is only a few dollars more than the "low  price inspectors".  
Ask yourself, "Can I feel comfortable hiring someone for an inspection this important, just because they are the lowest bidder?"  Quite frankly, House Snoops don't want to be known as the cheapest, but rather the fairest and best, Home Inspector.
When you compare: our more than 25 years experience, the Knowledge, Equipment, Ethics and the amount of Time we spend in the home and on our report, you will agree that House Snoops Home Inspection is an outstanding value.
We always spend the time necessary to do the job right.  Normally we only schedule one inspection per day.  This allows us time to thoroughly inspect the home, time to speak with you about the findings, and time to go back to our office and prepare a first class report.
We are able to do this, because home inspections is our only Job,  We are not part-time, Retired and just want something to do, or employed anywhere else.  Our job is inspecting homes, we do not sale or repair homes in any way.   
REMEMBER:    The value of the inspection increases when the Inspector does not make repairs or do service to Homes ! And any Home Inspection Companies that offer to do repair work, or recommend repair companies, should be avoided.

Before you decide on an Inspection
compare the quality of the reports first.
