I liked the home inspector right way. He was a retired, electrical engineer who loved old houses. He invited us to speak up if we noticed anything. The buyers--a young couple--were there. The wife's Dad and her uncle came too. The Dad found the leak in the garage. The young wife found they key clue--a barely visible patch on the dining room wall where wetness was just starting to make the paint bubble. The inspector was puzzled when the relatively new boiler failed to fire. Then Bingo! He realized there was probably a burst pipe behind the wall. You can never have too many eyes for a building inspection.
