My wife and I just had our soon to be house inspected, and I believe that it was $185 well spent. The guy was very thorough, and provided us with a 200 page (standard) report when he was done. Even though our house was new, there were still three outlets that did not have ground wires, and the sump pump drain came our the side of the house (was never drained anywhere). My advice, get a thorough inspector, ask for references. Ours climbed in the attic and did structural inspections of everything. Have them open every window, check every outlet, etc. Another thing that the inspector found was that the back door still had the shipping caulk around it. Not a big deal, but up here, that means in two years, we would've had a rotting door frame.
