What fees do you charge for a base residential inspection, and how do you determine pricing for additional sq ft and add on services? I feel like pricing varies greatly and I'm not sure what to charge (I don't want to undersell myself but I also don't want to go too cheap and scare away potential clients).

Any tips or info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!
If you're not scaring away some prospects, you're underpriced. Your personal pricing depends largely on your cost of doing business and your ability to convince others of your value. Your value will be very much predicated on the quality of your work. That probably puts you somewhere between $179 and $600 for a basic TREC inspection on a new smaller home, with no add-ons.

How much revenue do you need from each inspection to cover your fixed and variable costs and make your target profit? How much are you worth?
