We all listen; hear to the sounds around us every waking moment. Some of those sounds include people talking to us. Listening also means to heed. As in heed a warning. Home inspectors are people who as part of what we do give people advice and or warn them about potential dangers that exist in their new home. Yet does everyone always listen or should I say heed what their home inspector has to say?
The other morning I was inspecting a small cape style home. When I began testing the outlets, right away I found mis-wired receptacles. On the first outlet I tested that was wrong I noticed a small sticker. When I looked closer it was from another inspection company.
I asked the agent how long the current owners had been in the home. The answer was 2002. So it is possible this plug along with a few more, were flagged back then and never repaired?
This made me wonder how often clients never fix the items on the inspection report. I have a few times over the years inspected the same home twice, years apart, and found the same defects untouched by my original clients. It really makes me question how many items get fixed or simply get pushed aside because of other priorities.
Do clients hear the inspector?
