A walk through inspection is ideal for people that are considering buying a house but don't necessarily want a full inspection. A walk through inspection is great if the house is in good shape, but you just want some peace of mind. It is also great in areas where bidding wars take place, where you may have to inspect four or five properties before landing the property that suites your needs. This can end up saving you hundreds of dollars, since there is no need for a full inspection when you may not even get the house. The walk through typically takes 1.5-2 hours with an inspection of the major components of the house followed by a narrative report from which you can make an informed decision.
