A home inspection is a great tool for sellers, as well. A pre-listing home inspection is done before you put your house on the market.

Frequently Asked Questions about Home Inspections
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that we get about home inspections.
Can A Home Inspection Detect Mold?
A mold inspection is different from a regular home inspection. While our inspectors will mention possible signs of mold found during a regular inspection, the presence of mold cannot be determined without laboratory testing. If there is any indication that there could be a mold problem in the home you are about to purchase, we highly recommend testing for mold. It is a simple and inexpensive home inspection add-on.
How Much Does A Home Inspection Cost?
For houses built after 1979, a full home inspection cost is just $395 (up to 2,000 square feet). All of our home inspections include FREE thermal imaging.
Are Home Inspections Worth It?
Absolutely! A home inspection is an extremely useful tool when buying or selling a home. Not only can a home inspection pick up on problems, but it can help you better understand your home. Our inspectors carefully review the results of your home inspection with you at the end of the inspection.
Is A Home Inspection Reliable?
You can count on Nonprofit Home Inspections to be reliable. Our home inspectors are certified in the state of Oregon. Additionally, we are bonded, licensed and insured. When you hire Nonprofit Home Inspections, you can rest assured that you will get an honest, reliable inspection of your property.
What If The Home Inspection Reveals Problems?
At the end of the home inspection, you’ll get a report with a list of things that need to be addressed. Since most houses are not perfect, a comprehensive home inspection will reveal defects. These could be minor or major. Although many of our inspectors have a background in construction, we don’t do any repairs as we believe this is unethical.
You can deal with the issues found in several ways:
- Ask sellers to make repairs – We typically recommend that you avoid this approach if possible. If the contractor takes longer than expected to finish repairs, it could delay closing. Also, since the seller is on the line for repairs, they will probably just choose the lowest price, which might not be the best quality. If you do go this route, we recommend a re-inspection to make sure the work is up to par.
- Ask for cash to do the repairs yourself – We encourage this option as you can choose when and how to do the repairs. You pick the contractor that you want to do the work. Have a re-inspection to make sure the work was completed satisfactorily.
Can I Attend The Home Inspection?
Sure, in fact, we highly recommend that you attend. This is a great chance for you to ask questions and see exactly what we find.
