When to listen, when not

I'm in the middle of renovating my house. It was build in 1947 and there are "problems". I am glad I bought this house. It has been wonderful.

I was thinking back to the Home Inspection. The home inspector found so many problems it was depressing. I liked the house and the area and decided to ignore his advice - a great decision.

Really good Home Inspectors should not be giving any advice - simply there to tell you what is wrong with the property. Some Home Inspectors overstep their job description.


  1. If you are going to purchase any home at any place then you should hire an Certified Home Inspector so that you can get all information about that home and you can take help from site and you can get an licensed home inspector from this site!!

  2. Yes,while renovating the house, we come across many problems.But Home Staging Training resolves all our problems and feel easy to do this.

  3. While renovating our house, we faced so many problems, but the
    Manhattan Beach Home Inspector Service
    done their job very well and now we are very happy with our house.

  4. I am glad that you found a house that suits you. A good home inspector will tell you about the present state of the systems and components in the home, and where there are problems, should indicate how the problem should be resolved. The decision as to whether to buy or not, is not one that falls within the purview of an inspector; each buyer must make their own decision based on their own budget, experience, and their measure of the pros and cons of that particular home.

    can save you and your building from natural calamities and
    Hazardous accidents that can harm your life.Now you can
    understand your new home better with the Home Inspection

  6. Home Inspectors don't give advice they make recommendations from their reports. Of what have they seen in the property during inspections. The report tells you the present condition of your home and being aware of it already it is the owners decision on what to do next.

  7. Hi there!

    I'm Chris, and I'm a huge reader of your blog. Just wanted to let you know I love your writing! Keep it up!

    I'm a student at the University of Calgary, and just recently along with two other fellow students I created a video about our idea to make our University a greener place. Here's a quick summary:

    "Revitalize sustainability measures, increase fitness and lessen the negative environmental impact of elevators by promoting existing stairway infrastructure through auditory/visual enhancements, nature themes, educational eco-facts and sustainability-focused features."

    We would be honored if you could help us reach our goal of getting the most votes - the team that wins earns their university $100,000 to implement the environmental solution!!!

    If you could, please feature this story and help us build awareness to combat this growing dilemma. You can find our video at

    Thank you so much!!!

  40. As much as home inspections are important Commercial Property Inspection Maryland also holds vast importance as offices are considered to be the second place where people spend most of the time in a day. It is very important to get the place inspected thoroughly as EPA reported around 21000 deaths annually due to radon exposure which causes lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon Inspection Cost Maryland is nothing as compared to the price you will have to pay when prolonged radon exposure will result in causing major health issues. Radon is a colorless odorless gas present in the air all around us in trace amounts but it becomes a hazard when it gets entrapped inside the house and the residents of the house are exposed to it. The safe levels of radon as suggested by EPA is 4pCi/l and the amount more than it is alarming and you need to install a radon mitigation system at your commercial property as soon as possible.
