Iv'e been a home inspector for over eight years and I still can't figure out realtors???? My job is to protect my client and I beleive I do a good job.
What I can't understand is when a realtor tells me everything in the home is in good condition and you walk in and it's is not. I have nothing against realtors but when I ask the realtor how long have you been doing this and they say 10-12 years I say to them,before you took on the listing you looked over the home didn't you, And they say yes.
I try not to cause any problems but by the time i'm done with the inspection there are many issues with the home, some minor and some major and I tell my client about them so they can make a informed decision on the property. That's my job period.
Then the realtor gets upset with me and I tell them if you have been in the bussiness for 10-12 years and looked at the property you new that there was some problems. I understand that they would like to sell the property but they must also be upfront with the people and the deal will go a lot quicker.
