In recent years, competition in the real estate industry has skyrocketed. To make their offers more attractive, some home buyers are giving up their right to a home inspection, which is not a recommended practice. Despite this, the trend has become prevalent in certain states due to market pressures. To help buyers and sellers, I offer a Walk-Through Home Consultation, also known as a Walk & Talk. This service delivers professional on-site consultation to answer any buyer’s and seller’s questions about the home’s condition. It is essential to note that this service does not substitute a comprehensive home inspection.
The Walk-Through Home Consultation service is designed to be a helpful and informative resource for buyers and sellers during a real estate showing. It is typically conducted during a scheduled showing and is limited to the duration of the showing, not exceeding 1 hour in total. The consultation occurs in the presence of the real estate agent and the client, providing an opportunity for an open and direct conversation about the home’s condition.
During the consultation, a professional will answer any buyer’s or seller’s questions about the home’s condition. In addition, they will take the time to evaluate the home and provide insights and observations to the clients. This service is designed to supplement a traditional home inspection, providing additional information and peace of mind for both parties involved.
It’s important to note that the Walk-Through Home Consultation is not a substitute for a comprehensive home inspection. Showings are usually scheduled for 15 or 30 minutes, providing a brief overview of the home’s condition. The Walk-Through Home Consultation enhances the showing experience and provides additional information to buyers and sellers as they navigate the real estate process.
There Is No Report
The Walk-Through Home Consultation offers a unique and personalized experience for buyers and sellers in the real estate market. During this on-site consultation, a professional will answer questions and provide insights and observations about the home’s condition. Although a written report is not included, clients and agents are encouraged to take notes to ensure they have a record of the information discussed.
I will also take photos during the walk-through as a reference, which can help answer questions or resolve issues in the future. However, these photos will not be included in any formal report. The service is designed to be flexible and adaptable to meet the needs of each buyer or seller. While a written report may not be suitable for everyone, the focus on hands-on, personalized consultation and the ability to take notes and reference photos make it a valuable resource for those seeking additional information about a property.
The Walk-Through Home Consultation is designed to be a quick and focused assessment of a property’s condition. It offers buyers and sellers a professional perspective on the property they consider purchasing or selling. During the limited time frame of the consultation, I will conduct a visual inspection of several critical areas of the property, including the exterior, interior, and basement, if time allows.
In addition to these areas, I will inspect the roof, though only from the ground, if it is visible and accessible. While a full roof inspection requires a closer and more detailed examination, a visual inspection from the ground can provide valuable information about the roof’s overall condition and identify potential issues that may need further attention.
The inspection aims to provide a quick overview of the property’s condition and address any immediate concerns or questions buyers and sellers may have. By visually inspecting key areas of the property and providing professional insights, the Walk-Through Home Consultation can help buyers and sellers make more informed decisions about purchasing or selling a home.
What’s Not Covered
The Walk-Through Home Consultation does not include inspections of attics or crawl spaces (if present), and the electrical panel cover will not be removed. Additionally, appliances will not be tested as part of the inspection. Instead, the consultation focuses on visually assessing the property’s exterior, interior, and basement areas and providing a general overview of its condition. Excluding these specific areas and components allows the inspection to be completed quickly while giving valuable information and insights to buyers and sellers.
Price & Payment
The cost of a Walk-Through Home Consultation is an important factor to consider for buyers and sellers who want to receive professional insights and recommendations about the condition of a property. For the first property, the cost of the service is $175. However, if additional properties are shown back-to-back, and the distance between the properties is less than 10 miles, each subsequent property costs $100.
This pricing structure is designed to be both affordable and efficient, making the Walk-Through Home Consultation accessible to a wide range of buyers and sellers. In addition, the reduced cost for subsequent properties is intended to encourage clients and real estate agents to schedule multiple showings in a single trip, saving time and making the service more convenient.
It is important to note that the cost of the service can be paid for by either the client or the real estate agent, allowing for flexible payment options that are tailored to the individual needs of each buyer and seller. Whether the service is used by a first-time homebuyer, a seasoned investor, or a real estate agent looking to provide added value to their clients, the Walk-Through Home Consultation is designed to offer professional and affordable insights into the condition of a property.
