Home Inspection

We get it

At Walter Residential, we understand that knowledge of investment purchases minimizes risks and accelerates the negotiation process. We see inspections as an investment rather than an expense. By conducting pre-purchase inspections, you will be able to...

  1. Identify the quality and structure of the home by a certified inspector. 

  2. Begin the estimation process before the closing. 

  3. Maximize the amount of your return. 

How does it work exactly?





To schedule an inspection we will need a little information from you about the house. 


1. Is it vacant or occupied?

2. Address of the home?

3. How will we get in?

(Is there a lock box or will someone meet us there to let us in?)

If you have a steady need for inspections, we will create a streamlined process for handling new properties.


To complete an inspection we need full access to the house. Roof, interior, exterior and crawlspace.



In an inspection we are looking for high-dollar items that will need replacing. We are walking through taking photos of every room (if possible) from multiple angles, as well as a walk through video of the home's layout. A complete inspection is typically 20-30 minutes. 


Once we have completed the full inspection, the report will be completed and we will start the photo upload process. 

When do I get the report?

In most cases the report is submitted to the client within an hour after the inspection is completed. 

How will the report be sent?

The report will be sent by email. In the report will be a link to the photos/videos of the home.
