What a Real Estate Agent wants from a Home Inspector

In fact, Home Buyers and Home Sellers should too!

+Bill Gassett has written an excellent Real Estate article that focuses on the home inspection.

What I picked out from Bill's article and what is so true is that the true value of a home inspection is in how the home Inspector delivers his findings.
