An additional charge of $1.00 per $1000 added for homes selling over $200,000 (excluding lake-front property and large parcels of land). Example: A home selling for $225,000 is $25,000 over $200,000. 25,000/1000 = $25.00 The total Inspection Fee would be $350.00 This increase is negotiable, especially with Lakefront property and large parcels of land which artificially inflates the price.
A reduced fee may apply for low income person(s) who qualify for certain community support programs such as Community Action House, HUD homes, State and/or Federal grant programs, or low income first time home buyers. (This reduced fee applies to low income home buyers and not investors.)
Individual component inspections (such as structure only, etc.) are $100.00 each.
$25.00 per hour re-inspection fee. Often the initial inspection will discover a concern or defect which you request the current home owner to correct before closing. If the home owner reports that the concern has been corrected I will re-inspect the corrected concern or defect for a $25.00 per hour fee.
A mileage fee may apply if the inspection property is further than 60 miles from Holland, MI.
For a DVD with annotated (100+) photographs add $75. (Useful for out of town buyers not able to view the inspection.)
A DVD/CD of all pictures taken during the inspection is included in the price.
Additional charges may apply for a building with multiple units, out buildings (one garage is included in the cost) and/or additional furnaces or kitchens. This is negotiable and should be discussed prior to the commencement of the inspection.
No additional charges for areas such as a crawl space.
Prices subject to change.
