Cash or Check:
Payment is due during review of B.A.R. after inspection is complete. (Cash or personal checks only).
Our home inspections take at least 1 1/2 hours. Sometimes we spend 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours if we find more things wrong. Our original quoted price remains. Make Checks payable to D. A. Wilemski. (We dropped our business banking account when we switched from the INC. to an L.L.C. ; this saves us money which we pass onto our clients.)
Our pricing starts at $240 for a newer 1150 sq. foot home with basement and one bath. The average home inspection is approximately 2,300 sq. feet, built in 1980 with 2.0 full baths & attached 2 car garage; we charge approx. $315.
The things that add to the inspection cost are a second kitchen in the basement, a second furnace with 2'nd A/C system, a large three car garage with work shop; electric baseboard heat in homes over 3100 sq. ft.; crawl spaces in older homes over 1,000 sq. feet; pole barns; boat hoists; seawalls; septic systems and wells; Radon and Mold testing.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Why do you need a home inspection?
Buying a home is most likely the largest investment anyone will ever make. A home inspection lets you know the condition of the property BEFORE you close on it. You should have a clear understanding about the property and feel confident about the purchase of YOUR new home. Beacon Light documents all major problems and checks for future problems to give you the peace of mind you need. We also (sometimes) bring up safety items and point out a few possible liability issues.
When does the buyer schedule a home inspection?
After you have made an offer to purchase and before closing is the best time. Have your Attorney or Real Estate Agent include an "Inspection Clause" in the contract! This makes your purchase contingent upon the findings of a professional home inspection.
