Prior to becoming a Realtor, I spent a few years working for my Partner's home inspection company. I remember one time when we took nine people to a very large house just to keep the inspection time down to something reasonable. After all, if one inspector takes nine hours, then it would seem logical that nine inspectors would take one hour. Total work-hours is the same.
Anyway, I learned many things that help me help my Clients before the home inspector ever arrives. One of those is how to read serial number coding on water heaters to determine how old they are. It's quite easy except for a couple of brands—and for those I carry a cheat sheet. However, it really doesn't matter what brand it is if it looks like that in the picture. If you can't get to it, you can't tell how old it is.
My Client did like the extra storage space for shoes and dishes. It's always good when you can help Clients see how they might furnish the home and use certain spaces. LOL
