If my inspector told the buyer what to ask for and what could "kill the deal".

When an inspector is extremely anal or not detalied enough, I will move on. I once had an inspector get over-involved, arguing with contractors that they were doing repairs incorrectly...it was too much...stopped using him.

The #1 thing that home inspector do that I do not like is scare my buyer about the issues with the home.  #2 Is not calling me of my buyer back.

I once had an inspector talk down to my buyer clients as though they were in the third grade.  He interrupted the wife on several occasions, and by the time the inspection was finished, I vowed he would be dead to me.  He still is...

Good morning Michael. Love the question, some just do very sloppy work and delve into areas and give opinions on stuff that they shouldn't.

Kill a deal with unreasonable items.  Many Buyers; particularly first time, believe everything an inspector cites and thinks they are bigger issues than they really are....an inspector needs to be professional and helpful to the client and explain issues honestly.  Don't lead them to believe they should received $$$ for everything awry.  Explain to them how they should maintain the appliances.  If the inspector is slothful, disrespectul and messy, they will not be used again.
