Did a termite and structural/mechanical on a 1980 POS today. I was there a total of 1 hour and six minutes when one of two Agent mutters: “you are taking so long, we should find another inspector”. I about hit the floor.
Anyway, I get my young, single, male buyer to the side and discover that neither Agent there represents him. Needless to say, we had a long, private discussion about the grading, foundation, electrical, plumbing, roof and heating issues, a talk about understanding the true costs involved with the repairs, and a referral for a good agent that will represent his interests. That stupid blurp just cost 3% if he chooses to go through with the deal. @#$%%^&&*!!
As I’m leaving the rude agent says: “so you have my email address to send the report to?”. “Oh yeah, I’ve got the email address” I say, winking to my client. My client already instructed me not to send the report to anyone but him.
I was there 3 hours and the plumbers (doing hydrostatic), who were there before me, were still there when I left.
Anyway, thanks for the vent!
