While we would never advise waiving the home inspection in a real estate contract, we understand that the current housing market is not normal. Our Walk-Through Consultation aka “walk-and-talk” is designed for those homebuyers who have decided to waive the right to negotiate the contract with a home inspection.

Disclaimer: This service is not to be used in lieu of a home inspection and should not be treated as such. We will not use any inspection tools. We will not use any ladders or mount any roofs. We will not enter any crawlspaces. There will be no report issued. This service is simply a verbal opinion based solely on our inspector walking with you, seeing what you see.


Day of Inspection

Should I walk around the house with you?

Absolutely. I’m happy to explain everything I’m looking at. There will be times where I need to focus and evaluate, but feel free to tag along and ask questions.

Can my agent be there too?

Yes! Agents are encouraged to be there and be engaged so they can know what they’re writing up in your Repair Request Addendum.

The Report

What should I be looking for?

My reports have lots of images to help you recall what you’re looking at. I break down my reports into areas that are safety hazards and other recommended items to fix/ask for.

The summary will be the most helpful area of the report, right at the top.

Will there be recommendations on who to call?

With each defect I include which type of contractor you will need to search for to get quotes.


Can I call you if I have questions after I get the report?

Absolutely. This is one of my favorite parts. Call, text or email.


Can you give me some preferred contractors to call?

I have a few contractors that I’ve worked with in the past that I can recommend. I still recommend you contact at least 3 in each area for quotes and do your own research.
