Michigan Home Inspection Fees
The difference between Professional Providers on any house is $10 to $30. We all have the same costs of providing professional service. All home inspectors are not created equally! Especially in Michigan since Home Inspectors are not licensed nor regulated. We ”shop” our professional competition regularly and having been in business since “1975″ we know the PROS and the not so… we find the typical inspection fee difference between professional providers to be $10 to $30 on same sized homes because professional providers all have the same costs of doing business.
Always be careful for “Cheap Charlie”
It’s been said for generations because it’s true … “You get what you pay for!”
What we’ve found about low priced inspectors:
|Are not really a company: they work off of their cell phones, calling themselves a company when really they’ve created a job for themselves.|
|Here today maybe..and in this economy…Likely gone tomorrow.|
|Cut the inspection time. They do quicker, less thorough inspections.|
|Not willing to send you copies of their insurances because they do not carry the necessary insurances to protect you nor themselves.|
|Are not professionally trained and have not served an apprenticeship (Inspectors like this are more likely to miss major problems in your home).|
|Do not belong to a recognized national inspector association. Associations require continuing education so inspectors are educated to protect you & your investment.|
|Do not offer any Guarantees.|
|Have not taken or can’t pass the National Home Inspector Exam.|
|Are new and don’t know the cost of business. They will not be in business for long.|
|No post inspection support to buyers.|
|Many here today and maybe/likely gone tomorrow.|
Ask yourself, is the cost the most important factor in protecting your family and investment, or is QUALITY your deciding factor? Did you buy the cheapest home or the best valueP
With over 1,000 inspectors in Michigan (and no state licensing or oversight) only 173 have attempted the National Home Inspector Exam. Only 106 passed. 9 out of 10 Michigan home inspectors have not passed the exam!
We have enough confidence in our fee to include it in our 200% guarantee (see our 200% Guarantee)
This is my 4th home inspection since 1991 and by far the best inspection I ever received.

Hiring the cheapest inspector might save you $100 today but cost you thousands next month or next year. Be very careful in selecting your home inspector… Especially in Michigan … Be Very Very Careful. Just as you did in buying your home.
