As an inspector one or the hardest calls I take is from sellers of property I have inspected. I ALWAYS do my best to explain what I have found and if is within my expertise, I often will give them repair tips.
I had a client years ago buying a condo, and we found some relativity simple repairs that need to be done. When the seller called me I gave him the information he needed to get it fixed.
I guess that worked out well, since then I have been working with the sellers realtor many times, her grandmother and now the original condo seller bought another home. This morning we woke to a new great review of our services from that original seller, nice way to start the day.
This is the third time I've worked with Home Inspections of Puget Sound. The first time I met JJ, he was on the "other" side of the transaction, inspecting a condo my son and daughter-in-law were selling, referred by the buyer's agent.
JJ found a couple of electrical problems with the condo, and when we had questions about how to fix them, he A) called us right back - no waiting and B) explained in detail what he found and how we could fix it - and be sure with fixed it by purchasing a $5 tester at Home Depot.
Happy I could shared those tips with him years ago.
Good Luck Steve!
