I’d like some feedback from experienced inspectors.
There are a few basic things that I expect agents to do prior to a home inspection.
Buyer’s Agent: 1) Prepare the home buyer by telling them what a home inspection is and what to expect from a home inspector. 2) Tell homebuyer to bring money to the inspection. 3) Give our company at least 10 days to schedule the inspection - don’t call and ask for an inspection tomorrow. 4) During the inspection - don’t spin what I say.
Listing Agent: 1) Get the seller out of the house during the inspection. 2) Get all dogs out too. 3) Tell seller to make access to the heating/cooling system, access panels, electrical panel box, water meters, valves, etc. - Clean up the place. 4) Don’t be there to spin what I say.
If you guys were able to give advice to the Buyer’s Agent and/or Seller’s Agent - advice that would make your job easier - what would it be?
