Should you skip a home inspection for a Walk Through Consultation?
Absolutely not! A home inspection will provide you a professional opinion about the homes current condition. Skipping a home inspection can be financially risky. And risky for the safety and wellbeing of you and your family. You may find yourself in a competitive bidding situation. Skipping a home inspection might be something you unfortunately need to consider. Grand View Property Inspections is offering a walk through consultation as an option. Once you have decided to do an initial walk through on a potential home, bring us with you as a professional set of eyes. Even though we are unable to perform a full home inspection we can still spot things from a visual walk through that could prevent a headache in the future.
We recommend that if you do skip the home inspection that you should still get one after you purchase the home. This way you can be aware of any other issues that may present themselves down the road. Remember that we are unable to view the attic and other hard to reach places during the walk through. A complete general home inspection will allow us to provide you a better story of your home. From there you can prepare for any issues that may present themselves. We also always recommend radon testing.
