Hey,
your home inspection cost depends on the size and age of your home and which inspector your are going to use but it should range between $300 to $400.
The Appraisal is probably somewhere around $450 and it is usually part of your closing/loan application cost.
These numbers are estimates only, as I said before the inspection depends on a couple of factors and so does the appraisal. If you need homeinspectors in the area, let me know and I will give you some references, they can quote you their exact prices. Franziska

Interesting questions, but hard to answer without more information on your situation, but I will try to answer them as best I can.
Home inspections can very depending on who you use, and what you want them to do for you. These are not lender required.
You will need to talk to your 203k lender to find out what the price of the appraisal will be, but you will not have control over this. The appraisal will be randomly choosen by your lender.

Your FHA appraisal is completely separate from your home inspeciton. Your appraisal will ensure your home meets FHA criteria and estimate its market value. If the home doesn't meet the criteria corrections will need to be made and either your appraiser or an FHA Fee Inspector will ensure the repairs meet FHA criteria.

Your home inspector will advise you on the condition of your home based on good building practices - not FHA criteria.
