Home Inspection to purchase home

We selected this company because when my mom sold her house, the purchaser used them and we found the report provided very comprehensive and inclusive of cost estimates for repairs. This unfortunately was not our experience. The inspector was ok, friendly/polite. The format of the report was very confusing and not helpful. They gave us a nice book of how to look after your home, which was great but not worth the almost 600.00 we paid for the inspection. The report was given to us in "codes" that we had to flip to another chart to figure out if it was problematic, normal, needs attention etc. Also, in home inspections we've had in the past, the report included rough estimates for costs to repair problems, this report did not include any such information. The attic was not inspected as we found problems not noted in the home inspection. The only good thing about this company is they refunded our money so we could hire a home inspection company better suited to our needs. We also found that 600.00 is about 100-150 over the average home inspection fee. My advice is if you are going to hire a home inspector, ask to see a sample of what the report will look like to ensure that you are getting what you need/want.
