Yes, I love many Professional Home Inspectors here on Oahu. They will do their job inspecting the home and give their sound professional advise through the walk through with the buyers.
There are some inspectors who go as far as to say, “This window screen clip is a minor repair and it’s not a deal breaker, but it’s something to keep in mind”. There are others who don’t say a word and let the buyers think they shouldn’t be buying a piece of crap.
Yes, I love to work on the other side of a seasoned real estate agent. But you take an inspection with many little things compounded with an uneducated real estate agent, the transaction falls out of contract. They concur with the report and take the ‘recommendations’ of getting screen clips as ‘damaged property’.
There is NO perfect house that has weathered the years from the 1970’s.
A screen clip should be taken with a grain of sale.
(I’ll fix those if it means so much to you!)
Don’t break a deal for the home that your client really loves!
