The costs vary from one vendor to another but the range is $375 to $450. If you decide to do additional testings like lead, water or radon, then this is extra. We recommend 3 Home Inspectors, Tiger Home Inspection, Mr. Inside Out and Pillar to Post. All three are good and cover Norwalk, CT.

It does vary; radon inspection is around $100-150, water is about $100, building inspection around $300-$400 depending on the inspector. Bill Hirsch with Total Home Inspection has done over 7000 inspections. He works for you and makes sure to educate about the unit/home, while inspecting every aspect. He brings in a separate termite inspector and Standard Oil guy to do those inspections at the same price as other inspectors. 203-838-7800 is his number, you will probably talk to Melissa if you call, his assistant.

Let me know if you have any questions,

The costs vary upon what tests you want to have done, but should be around 500 or less. Well worth it. I can recommend Tiger Home Inspections.

We would estimate an inspection of the townhouse to be btwn $400-$500 by using a state certified inspector. Extra costs included in the higher price may depend on having a separate radon and termite inspection. Most inspection reports will be given to you immediately after the inspection to 24 hrs afterwards.
Your realtor will certainly be able to give you 3 reliable inspectors to choose from. Most of the well-respected ones have websites to review. Also, several will offer email tips on how to address any problems after you become a homeowner.
Be sure that your Realtor receives a copy of the report as well so they can negotiate or question any items that need repair.
You don't want to necessarily choose the least expensive inspector unless he/she is highly recommended. Remember you often get what you pay for!

Good luck!
