Home Inspectors are NOT SUPPOSED TO BE QUOTING PRICES ON REPAIRS! But MANY DO!
They are trying to scare the buyer so they can get another fee for the next inspection, and the next,...
If the inspector finds asbestos pipe insulation (see picture) the price for removal can be like sticker shock at the car dealer!
When you hire Meticulous Home Inspection for a pre-listing inspection, you avoid all the renegotiation and hassle because you can get prices from reputable contractors for the issues the inspector finds, and with real prices you can show the buyer you are proactive and want to sell.
All buyers want to know 'How much will it cost?" Now you can show 'em, and now you can avoid the BS when an inspector who says a $500 repair will cost $5000.
