What is a J1 or home inspection? How much will this cost? Hi, I’m Fawn Bertram with Homes by Fawn and Hawaii Life. Congratulations on getting your offer accepted. This is an exciting time, and I am so happy for you! You’re probably wondering what happens next!
J1 or Home Inspection
The very first thing your agent will do is order a J1 or home inspection. A home inspection is paid by the buyer when the service is performed here in Hawaii. How much does a home inspection cost? For a typical condo, the home inspection can range from $300 to $450 depending on square footage. The home inspection for a single-family home varies anywhere from $650 to $850 depending on the square footage. For luxury homes, the price will be higher because of the square footage.
A great tip I can offer you, I highly suggest having a licensed home inspection company do the home inspection. A home is one of the most substantial investments you’re about to make, shouldn’t you have a professional who is licensed?
Don’t worry, though, a good agent will know what companies are licensed and not. If you are interested in learning more, please contact me, 808-439-1077.
