Not necessary to spend so much. As a realtor in the 08550 and 08540 area for 13 years, my favorite home inspector in All Star Home Inspection Alan Cross is the the sole proprietor and operator of his business. He is thorough and his inspection is 450.00 inclusive of structural, electrical plumbing, and building issues. This includes checking all windows, roof, furnace ac foundation walls, water penetration. and so much more. If a house is very old and necessary to have a structural engineer, then I would recommend another but Alan Cross has not disappointed me yet.
Call me and I will help you find a great house and we can grow together. 609-903-9098
