The first thing you have to do is find a home inspector. Most of the time real estate agents will provide their clients with a list of several home inspectors to choose from.

These are typically inspectors they have a great relationship with or they have been happy with their services in the past. Other times clients will choose to research home inspectors in the area and choose one that they think has the best qualifications.

When choosing a home inspector, it is a great idea to get an estimated cost of the home inspection so you can be prepared when scheduling the inspection. On our website, you will see a Free Home Inspection Estimate button. Use this to get the most accurate estimate for your future home inspection costs. This free estimate tool allows you to get an estimate for your home inspection in seconds!

At Ellingwood Pro, we have set it up so you can do both of these from your phone or computer! Payment is submitted online and the inspection agreement is submitted online as well. So there is no need to worry about forgetting your checkbook or finding a printer to sign forms, we make it quick and easy so everything is handled and completed prior to the day of the inspection.

On the day of the inspection, the total time of the inspection can vary based on the size and age of the home. The average home inspection takes 3-4 hours to complete but it can vary on a couple of different factors.

We typically recommend the client arrives at the inspection, about an hour and a half after the inspection start time. This allows the inspector to go through the entire property first and then when the client arrives the inspector can go back through the property a second time and focus on any questions the buyer may have.

How Long Does it Take to Get The Home Inspection Report?

All home inspectors have different delivery timelines for their home inspections but at Ellingwood Pro, we deliver home inspection reports the same day as the home inspection! We know that our clients are anxious to receive their inspection report so we ensure we take the time to write up their report right away and get it sent to their email as soon as it is completed!
