I performed an Inspection for a client and had agreed to meet with him to report back what I found. I met him at a local restaurant and when he came in he said to me, “I just wanted to let you know, I was trying to buy this home in the middle of someone else’ 48 hour clause but they ended up getting the home before me. I can’t buy this house because it’s already sold.”
I gave him the Report, showed him a couple of things I found (awkwardly) and he wrote me a cheque. It felt strange to show him defects in another persons’ home. I guess it doesn’t always pay to get greedy. (BTW, this home was in the same town as the last fraud artist seller - strange town).
