A traditional home inspection ranges from $300-$600, and is determined by the size of the home. The buyer usually pays for the home inspection, and it should be considered as part of the total closing costs, unless a special arrangement has been made between both parties before the purchase agreement has been signed. In addition to a home inspection, the buyer should also consider a Wind Mitigation Report. The wind mitigation report is used to give you home owners insurance discounts on your home owners policy.
