I do not think that it makes much of a difference to the buyers agent, however, for the inspector it can be a nightmare if the sellers stay for the inspection.  I have had a few rough experiences, but, the worst happened the other day.  There was this elderly lady who had to sell her house in Gal...
This topic can be very touchy if taken the wrong way.  Through my years of inspecting, I have met and worked with MANY wonderful agents.  The reason for this post is because I was asked today to take it easy on a house with my inspection.  This is the first time that I had worked with this agent....
There are many variables in the decision process of hiring a home inspector.  First and foremost, you should ask for references or testimonials.  This will tell you if he has performed as advertised with past clients.  If he cannot come up with a list of at least 10 referrals, you should move on ...

Well, I finally decided to make the leap into being a full time home inspector.  I am inspecting in the Greater Houston Area including, Katy, Sugarland, Pearland, Cypress, Bear Creek, Memorial, Galleria and all of Fort Bend County.  I gave up my full time job as a commercial construction superint...
Well,  I am back.  I have not had a chance to blog in a month or two.  I am actually here to somewhat toot my own horn, for a change.  I received a call from a law firm in December.  They said that they had a client in their office that was not getting their money from the insurance company.  I h...
I am sure that all of you have seen the inspector that thinks his words are golden.  I have met a numerous number myself that I would love to stuff a sock in their mouth.  I am not sure how these guys are able to stay in business.  They act like bullies and are not willing to let anyone else have...
