Whether you are buying new construction or an existing home, I recommend that every homebuyer have their home inspected by a licensed home inspector. If you’re selling your home, you may want to consider getting it inspected before it’s listed so you can address repair items in advance.
The home inspector will provide you with a detailed report of his or her findings, recommend additional input from licensed electricians, plumbers, or contractors if warranted, and provide suggestions on routine maintenance or areas requiring monitoring in the future. The cost of a home inspection typically varies with the size of the home, the type of foundation (e.g., pier and beam vs. slab foundation), and the number of heating and air conditioning systems. In Middlesex County, the cost of a home inspection is typically between $300 and $600.
