Maybe you have had similar experiences… I get this call for a home inspection in Corona, California from a resident stating she wants her house inspected (listing inspection). A 3 bedroom, 1200 square foot home.
So I drive out.... do the inspection, no real estate sign in the front yard, and no boxes for packing, and the entire house is almost in "pack-rat" style condition, crap was inside and outside... the property.
While I am conducting the inspection the husband and wife start "SHOUTING" at each other, and the lady starts crying.... so I am about to ask, "is this a bad time for me to be here?!?!" but things cooled down, and I just proceeded thruought the home.
I talked to the husband and wife and was asking them where they were moving to, and just different real estate related questions.... I got very, very, short answers and they would not elaborate.... which to me was a "red" flag.. in my paranoid mind.... especially with today's lawsuits.
The wife only elaborated that she worked for an escrow company... and that was it.
So, I completed the inspection and issued the report.. and I asked the client, one last time over the phone, "So what prompted you to get a home inspection?"
Here was my "spooky" reply: "because I think people are destroying my home"... And I was just like, oh, okay.... didn't know what else to say and the conversation ended there.
Is this abnormal????!!?!? Or am I just being paranoid?
Let me know your thoughts or if you have had similar experiences....
