The Basic home inspection concept was created to serve two purposes; one, to cater to those that plan to ‘gut’ a dwelling and are only interested in the core components of a home, and two, to serve as an annual inspection in efforts to gauge the current performance of systems/components for home owners. Some use the Basic home inspection in lieu of a 100-Point Home Inspection for purchasing purposes. This practice is ill advised as the Basic home inspection does not cover many systems/components included with the 100-Point Home Inspection.
A Basic home inspection is much like a 4-point insurance inspection in that it focuses mainly on a visual inspection of accessible roofing components, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC, but also includes site grounds/grading as well as exterior walls.
Basic/Annual Home Inspection Fee: $200.00
