Ok so Last week I get a call from a prospective client. They tell me they didn’t want to use their realtors recommendation and did their own research and found me. OK so far this is going great as I love when I hear that stuff.
OK so we set up the inspection for yesterday, the whole shbang with Radon, WDI. So as I pull up I am thinking that I have been here before and the house looks really familiar. OK so I proceed with the inspection and all is going well and at this time I know I have inspected this home before I just couldn’t place the time. OH well no biggie it’s all good.
OK so while in the attic, I find 2 open junction boxes with live uncapped wires hanging out of the boxes. Note them and continue. OK now in the basement utility room I find a floor joist that has a huge notch in the center abd is about 75% cut (not cool). OK continuing on I find an extension cord coming out of a knock out in a metal 8b box used for a ceiling light. OK No connector to start, and this cord ran under the joists supported by twisty ties from the grocery store about 20" to a receptacle which was being used for the sump.
OK so you get the picture. The home was actually pretty decent 2500 sq ft, but did have some unique deficiencies.
OK now here is what I find interesting to me. I get back to the office and begin the report. But first I look up the address in my old logs. YUP I sure did do the inspection back in 2006 about 7 years back. Ok I look up the report and sure as shi…t the exact same deficiencies were noted then as now.
It just amazed me that the sellers now, who yes were my old client never fixed anything ??:shock: when they heard it was me, Maryland Home Inspection Services doing the new buyers inspection they chuckled and told my new client, about this and we all kinda laughed and now they have to fix the same issues I found 7 years ago for my new client.
All ended up great, and in the process my clients agent who at first had a chip on her shoulder because my client didn’t use “Her Guy” asked me for a stack of cards so she can use me in the future.
All Good In The Hood. Another Win Win For ALL !!
