Older homes inspection cost
An older home will usually have an additional fee depending on the age of the home. Usually, this fee will run you an additional 75-100 bucks.
The reason for this is that these older homes typically have a lot more character with additional add-ons, crawl spaces, and also age will put a toll on a lot of the structure of the home if it was not maintained properly.
