The duration of a home inspection can vary depending on the size, age, and condition of the property. In general, a typical home inspection can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to complete. However, larger homes, multi-family dwellings, older properties, or more complex properties may require additional time. Factors that can impact the duration of a home inspection include the number of systems and components to be inspected (e.g. heating systems, cooling systems, bathrooms, etc.), the accessibility of certain areas, and the need for specialized testing. It’s important to discuss the estimated duration of the home inspection when booking your appointment beforehand and plan accordingly to ensure enough time is allocated for a thorough inspection of the property.
