Having the inspector as a resource was crucial, especially since I'm in NY having to travel back and forth. I went in there with a list of questions for the inspector as well as the builders. I also received a report of the inspection with the necessary corrections from the inspector. Total price was $125. It was reasonable compared to others who priced at $250 or better. It's money well spent...
Did your inspector do the pre-drywall with you. You both went to the house at the same time?

Yes, I had the inspector come with me to the pre drywall. I was there for the weekend anyway, so I went.

Thank you very much! I will call them next week and will let you know the result.

I would never buy any home without a home inspection!

We are using someone recommended from here on another thread. We wanted someone who would do construction monitoring as well since we are located across the country right now and can't be there to see what is going on. We are using inspectorben. com. We have just begun so there isn't much to do, but I can say that he is very responsive to emails and questions, even on the weekends. I have emailed him several times and always gotten a response within hours.

edited to say as far as cost - I think our total cost is going to be about $1300. That includes weekly visits to the site followed up by emailed updates to us, pictures, pre-drywall inspection, and final inspection. For us being so far away, it is well worth the piece of mind.
