Overheard at lunch:
real estate agents behind me were complaining that buyers need to understand that they do not need a home inspection, because the inspections do not help anyone.
Alright, I can understand being upset with a specific inspection, inspector, or report; however, blanket statements such as this say more about the agent than the home inspection industry.
I think one thing that should be understood is that a statement of condition of the home is just that. I never know what will be most important to a client on the report, or what may happen after the inspection has been performed. In the end though, the buyer is better to be informed, especially when making the largest purchase of their lives.
