What is a walk through inspection?
A walk through inspection is typically one of the last things that is done before signing and taking possession of a property. However, at CPR (Comprehensive Property Reports) we believe that it can be useful at the start of a buying or selling process because of their educational value, especially for people are dealing with their very first property transaction.
The educational experience of our walk through inspection enables inexperienced people to immediately get a sense of the ‘system requirements’ of maintaining the property and what the key areas they need to pay attention to prior to soliciting a more thorough inspection.
By using CPR to do a walk through inspection with you when you are at the first stage of seriously considering a property, you can identify obvious red flags before spending more money to look for hidden issues. There’s no point spending any extra money to look for hidden issues if there are already obvious signs that the property is going to cost more than your expected budget.
At CPR, we know this approach is counter to what most property inspection firms have as their business model. Instead of encouraging you to pay a larger sum to find potential issues in every property you are considering, we will do an initial walk through inspection with you, so that you can get educated about the property and only invest in a more robust inspection once you are satisfied with the fundamentals.
