Home Inspection Services
Home inspection - single-family home is $350
Our standard home inspection for a typical single-family home usually takes between 3 to 4 hours. Our home inspections are extremely thorough and we use the HouseFacks reporting system. This reporting system is concise and extremely easy to understand. We are here to answer your questions and be a member of your team. We will never cut corners and we bring nothing but 100% honesty.
Not only are our prices in line and extremely competitive with the local industry but completely easy to understand. The majority of home inspectors will ask you to call for a quote or give you a base price then charge fees for age, square footage and travel. Our reports are easy to understand and sent electronically within 24 hrs. You will receive full HD pictures with every section of your report. We are detailed and honest. I will inspect your home as if it were my home. We are looking to gain clients and agents trust with honesty in our reports and prices. Our services are some of the best value you can receive in Central New York.
Drone Roof inspections- Free
Also, ask us about our free drone roof inspections! Upon request, we can inspect your roof using our DJI Phantom 3 advanced drone when weather conditions are right for flight. NYS does not permit us to walk roofs as part of our standards of practice. So Victory Inspections is looking to provide you with the best solutions and technology in the industry that's available today. We can provide you with a short video shot in beautiful full HD. We are fully registered with the FAA and follow their guidelines on flight restrictions and conditions. Some weather condition restrictions are but not limited to rain, snow, gusting wind, and temperatures under 35 degrees. Please click on our youtube link above and below to view a sample of our drone roof inspections. These are only done upon request and if we are allowed to fly within acceptable FAA airspace zones.
Radon testing - $100!!!!! (customer appreciation discount with a home inspection!)
Most competitors charge $150 dollars for their radon test along with a home inspection. Why pay more for the same service? I believe in providing you with the best value possible and I'm trying to reflect that in our prices!
If you would like a stand-alone radon test with no inspection our fee is $150
According to the EPA, radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. You can’t see or smell radon. Some areas of Central New York have higher levels of radon than others. Testing is the only way to know your level of exposure. Radon can have a big impact on indoor air quality. At the time of your inspection, I will set up your canisters in the proper location of the home. Once the proper time of testing is completed, I will then ship out your Radon test immediately to the lab for evaluation. Once the lab results are concluded, I will let you know. I understand the importance of receiving your test quickly and with us, you will have them always in a timely fashion. Below is a link to the EPA website to learn more about radon.
Pre-listing home inspection report - single-family home is $250
If you are trying to get the best price for your home when you sell it, then a pre-listing inspection is for you. Pre-listing home inspection reports in today's world of real estate, are becoming more and more popular because they virtually eliminate all the surprise and pitfalls that can be found in future buyers home inspection. My pre-listing report will give you a clear and simple understanding of what should be addressed and corrected in your home before it hits the market. This is a huge value to you as a seller and typically this inspection only takes up to two hours to complete. If you choose to address or repair issues found in your pre-listing inspection than show off your report to buyers. Show them that you had Victory Inspections inspect the home and they will see the before pictures while looking at the after in person. Don't let unforeseen issues hold up the sale or the price of your home!
Pre-listing Checklist/Walkthrough - $150
Don't want to have a full pre-listing inspection and receive a full report but want to have just a quick walkthrough and a checklist of your home? Then ask us about this service. We will briefly run through major systems within the home and provide you with a signed checklist stating that systems were checked and evaluated.
Post-inspection check-up - $150
Our post-inspection check-up is $125 and for those who already had us do an inspection and made repairs. With this service, we will provide you with a follow-up report in the same format as your original inspection report. This report can be provided to buyers or sellers looking to verify that the issues noted in your original report were addressed.
Drone property landscape videos - $250
This service is for those real estate agents looking to impress buyers with a high-quality 4K video showing them a perspective that they just would never see their potential next property. Our drone videos can be completely detailed to your needs! Tell me what you want to show off or what information you want to be included. This may be the perfect thing to push your listing over the top especially for those high-end homes or properties with a huge lot and acreage. We can also do this for barns and commercial properties.

Property drone photo is only $100 and a short social media 30sec to one minute video is $150
Water Quality/purity testing -
The United States has one of the safest water supplies in the world. However, according to InterNACHI, national statistics don’t tell you specifically about the quality and safety of the water coming out of your tap. That’s because drinking water quality varies from place to place, depending on the condition of the source of water from which it is drawn and the treatment it receives. An unfortunate example of this is the recent water supply issues in Flint, Michigan.
Have your drinking water tested at the time of your inspection (preferably early in the week) and we will, within a 24hr period, have your samples delivered to a local Central New York laboratory. Once your results are completed, I will contact you immediately. We offer multiple water quality/purity test and if this is something you are interested in receiving, I strongly recommend advising your realtor/attorney as to which test to purchase. We typically urge our clients to have this test performed by professional water quality companies outside of Victory Inspections or any other home inspector as they have a much more in-depth and reliable test that can be performed.
Well Water Flow Test - $100
A well flow test is a test to determine if the well has enough water to supply an average family of four. In accordance with FHA standards, we operate the well for one hour at the rate of 3 gallons per minute. Therefore, the well has a minimum quantity of 180 gallons. We generally like to run this test at a bathtub in the home. A well flow test does not say whether the well is a good well or not. The only test that does that is a "recovery test" and that should be completed by a well contractor.
Wood destroying organism inspections - FREE with home inspection
I can't understand why other home inspection businesses charge up to $125 for a separate one-page report in regards to wood destroying organisms. This is something that is always part of our basic home inspection reports and to be perfectly honest as home inspectors this is something we look for anyway. If in an area of the home I find any signs of wood damage or pest intrusion, I will report it in the corresponding section of the report. If you still wish to have a separate section in our HouseFacks report dedicated to WDO I will provide it to you upon request for only $25.
Multi-Family home inspection - base price $350 plus $75 per unit
If you have a multi-family home/building, Please allow us to inspect it today. Every extra unit will have its own page in our report.
Commercial property inspection - call us today
We are now offering commercial property inspections. Please call us to set up a time and a quote.
All of our inspections follow NYS SOP and are non-intrusive. We ask that all areas of the home have access including attic spaces and crawl spaces. We will not be able to remove blockages (including furniture) or create access to areas. Please have all pets removed or confined. We also ask that there is a clear and dry path to the main electrical panel for our inspections. NYS does not require us to walk on roofs as part of our SOP. Please be aware that all out-houses, side buildings, pools, and sheds are excluded from our inspections. If you would like any of these added to our inspection report there is a $50 charge and they will only be checked for safety and condition. Our drone videos are provided to our clients only if the home inspector feels conditions for flying are safe, legal and necessary to do so. Weather conditions and guidelines by the FAA limit our flights. Again we follow the drone manufacturers weather restrictions as well as the home inspectors opinion on flight conditions. Not all clients will be given a drone video.
