Get a walk-through consultation for new home buyers from Gold Wings Property Inspections

What is a walk-through consultation?

A walk-through consultation is ideal for homebuyer’s that choose to waive the initial full-scope inspection. During the consultation, we will walk through the interior and exterior of the home with the home buyer, discussing notable observations, concerns, and insights of readily available aspects of the home. This is a great opportunity for the home buyers to learn a great deal and ask questions about the major components of the home and how they all work together as a system. The walk-through consultation is limited in scope and DOES NOT SUBSTITUTE A FULL SCOPE HOME INSPECTION in that the inspector will not produce a formal report or any pictures for the home buyer’s use.

During the consultation, the home buyer is encouraged to take notes about identified issues/ concerns and fix-it items. The inspector’s only role is to identify and discuss issues and concerns of the home and its components with the home buyer, NOT to give recommendations on whether the home buyer should or should not attempt to put an offer on the home.

Walk-Through Consultation Details:

  • Approximately 30 Minutes – 1 Hour
  • Flashlight.
  • Due to the limited time and scope, the inspector will not bring the tools needed to conduct a formal inspection (Ladder, Screwdriver, Electrical testers, Laser Thermometer, etc.).
