In Texas? There are brown recluse spiders everywhere there - and I mean everywhere! And some black widows too. Everything you look behind could be the last thing you ever care to look behind. Just saying.
I thank the realtor for offering me names of inspectors. Those are the ones I WON'T use! Conflict of interest. Clear & simple. She's licking her chops for that commission. "Closing is just Mmmm! a few weeks away!" Last thing she wants is "no sale! Inspection didn't go well."
If you're going to inspect a home for me, you'll need to first show no realtor affiliations of any kind. Then, you must be willing to scramble up through a scuttle and inspect the roof from the inside - right to the eaves. Spiders or not. And are there wasps up there or evidence of critters getting in. That's just for starters. I "pre-inspect." Miss something? Very embarrassing. I'm not so interested in how glitzy you report your findings, or how fastt - I'm interested in what you find - or not find.

Great! I always ask the realtor selling the house I intend to purchase "can you recommend me an inspector?" Easy schmeasy. THOSE ARE THE ONES I WON"T USE! Cuts down on my search. Realtor smelling a commission? Yeah, right. I'm gonna let you tell me who to hire to inspect the place.

They legally are not allowed to recommend us, so I cant say thanks for recommending me.

I was thinking something like this and would love some feedback!!

Hi ____ Thank you for being so easy to work with at the inspection on 123 main st. I look forward to working with me in the future.


Thanks everyone in advance


Legal or not...It's a conflict of interest. I deliberately look for inspectors outside the realtor's range of "influence." Thanks for the post, though. Always good to know who's in cahoots with the realtors - i.e., who to avoid.
