Denver Realtor Reviews: The home inspection is one of the most vital portions of the home purchase process. Qualified professionals will look for obvious and less obvious imperfections in the home and you will identify which ones are critical for repair by the seller for the deal to move forward. In addition to a basic home inspection, you may consider inspecting for risks like Radon & Lead-Based Paint & Mold. It is additionally recommended that you have a sewer scope to identify sewers that need to be cleaned or potentially repaired or replaced. A thorough inspection may help you avoid health and safety concerns a home can present or near-term big-ticket repairs relating to the roof or structure of the home.
However, thoroughly inspecting a home is not cheap. My average Buyer invests approximately $750 inspecting the home and they may have to walk away from this investment if a mutually acceptable outcome cannot be reached regarding which items the Seller should fix or compensate the Buyer for.
Basic Inspection ~ $350
Radon Test ~$150
Sewer Scope ~$150
I no longer recommend specific inspectors. Below are some of the larger home inspection companies in Denver. You should also see reviews of Denver Home Inspectors on Yelp and the Denver BBB (Better Business Bureaus). Do not forget to check out the same sites, Yelp, and the Denver BBB (Better Business Bureaus) for reviews of sewer inspectors.

The home inspectors will offer the addition of a radon test. Make sure the home inspector knows your inspection objection deadline. The radon test will take 48 hours and you will want the results before your inspection objection deadline.
Denver Sewer Scopes
It is recommended that you coordinate the sewer scope simultaneous with the home inspection for the convenience of you and the seller. Schedule this after scheduling your inspection.
