Virtual Inspections have become necessary to move transactions and comply with regulations during the pandemic. While lenders have been flexible in using virtual inspections as part of the underwriting process, in-person inspections will likely be the preference in the future. However, the pandemic has given a guidebook to the possibility for virtual inspections, how they work and how and when they can be useful. Doing a long-distance inspection might not ever become the standard, but it will be a tool that lenders can use in future deals, beyond the requirements of the pandemic.
