This morning one of our buyer's had scheduled their home inspection so I arrived 10 minutes before our appointment time. The inspector was already in the driveway and putting a ladder back on to his truck. I went over to the inspector and introduced myself.
The inspector told me that he had inspected the house a month earlier (for another buyer whose deal fell through) and was looking to see what repairs the owner had actually made. A few minutes later our buyer arrived and they began the inspection. Fortunately for our buyers the owner did repair several things that were found in the last inspection but there were still 3 or 4 items concerning our buyer that will probably give them some negotiating power regarding the inspection items.
As the inspection went on I realized how much of a strange coincidence this situation was. I mean what are the odds of an inspector from the far north west part of the state would be hired to do an inspection in the central part of the state (more than an hours drive away) twice on the same home with different buyers?
