How Long Does a Home Inspection Take?

A home inspection typically takes from 2 to 4 hours to complete, depending on the size, age, and condition of the home. Additional time may be required for larger, older, or poorly maintained homes, as well as homes with hard-to-access areas. Optional services like radon testing can also extend the inspection time.

Factors that influence the length of a home inspection include:

  1. Size of the Home: Larger homes have more areas to inspect, which can extend the time required.
  2. Age of the Home: Older homes may have more issues and complexities, necessitating a more thorough inspection.
  3. Condition of the Home: Homes in poor condition may require more time to inspect each component meticulously.
  4. Accessibility: Areas that are hard to access may require additional time to inspect properly.
  5. Depth of Inspection: The extent of the inspection requested by the buyer can also affect how long it takes. Some inspections may include additional services like radon testing, which could extend the duration.
