Looking for a good not expensive Home Inspector

Asked by Somss02, Pottstown, PA Tue Feb 8, 2011

Looking for a home inspector that is very reasonably priced for the Pottstown area.

Help the community by answering this question:


You should get with a real estate agent that you know and trust, they should be able to recommend a few for you. Then just call and interview them and ask some of the questions that Jennifer talked about. Good luck.

Hi Soms,

How are you? Thank you for your inquiry. If you're working with a buyer's agent, your buyer's agent should have been recommending you some home inspection companies to get in touch with for your inspection process.............

Here is the contact information of the home inspection company that I recommend to all of my buyers and they all seemed to like the service that was being provided by the thorough inspection, knowledge and detailed reports that were generated once the inspection has been completed. I, myself, had used them for my home purchase last year as well. They have detailed photos, recommendation on how to repair certain items and even a breakdown of price ranges for some of the repairs so you can get an idea of how much you should re-negotiable your deal within your home inspection contingency period.

Good Afternoon,

Keep in mind these questions to ask a home inspector...

Will I receive a copy of the report with photos on site?
How long will it take to complete the inspection? If it is a 3 bed/1 bath 2 story home or ranch it should take at least 2.5-3 hours.

Steve Mento with Village Home Inspections is excellent. He will go through the entire home with you explaining how everything works and pointing out any issues. He can be reached at 610-873-1808.

Hello, Somss02

I would recommend US Inspect. Ask for Kevin Kerwood or Mark....they are my two favorite inspectors. A good, honest job for an honest fee.

I am happy to give you some referrals for a great inspector. I have dealt with a few inspectors and most times you get what you pay for.

I would like to suggest that you contact a local Real Estate Agent for 3 recommendations as to who they use to perform insepctions.
That should put you on the right track.
