Just Zip through, I'll see you in an hour.
I was at a home inspection in Lea County New Mexico the other day.
I was on time for the appointment when I arrived there were client's looking at the home.
A Realtor was showing the home I was getting ready to inspect.
I told her "I thought this home was sold and they were closing next week".
She told me "it is, but I'm showing the home as a back up to the present buyers". Really?
Then she told me to "zip through the inspection and I'll see you in an hour" I asked her "why in an hour" she said, "I have another showing and I need to keep the appointment, they are from out of town and they need to see the home".
I told her, " it's going to ake more than an hour to inspect".
She told me to "Just zip through , it's a good home".
I shook my head and went about greeting the buyers that showed up.
At the end of the inspection I asked the buyers if everything was in order for the closing of the home next week. They told me it was and everything is set. Just waiting on my report on the home to see if there were any issues that needed to be discussed before closing.
My question is this, Why show a home that is already going to closing?
And Never tell the inspector to ZIP THROUGH an inspection.
And yes she did show up with the other buyers before I was done with the inspection.
Have a great day everyone.
