In this current highly competitive market, a buyer may want to choose a Pre-Offer Consultation as a way to gather more information before submitting an offer. Also known as a "Walk and Talk", the purpose of this consultation is to identify significant visible and identifiable MAJOR DEFECTS in the roofing and foundation systems that, in the judgment or opinion of the consultant, adversely affect the function and integrity of the items, components, and systems reviewed. If time permits, the attic will be observed from the hatch only and the electrical panel and heating systems will be reviewed. The time allotted for this process is typically 60 minutes, which includes a final 10 minute oral recap. This No Liability service does not provide a written report and is not intended to replace a home inspection. It is highly recommended that a complete home inspection be completed if the offer to purchase the property in question is successful.
