“Not Everyone Sees the Home Inspection the Same”

    “Not Everyone Sees the Home Inspection the Same”



This loan was already approved and just about ready to close. Unfortunately buyer and seller couldn’t work out the inspection issues and there were a number of them. It was truly a matter of principal on both sides and egos got in the way. I know the Realtor was very frustrated as neither side was willing to give at all.


My client has already moved on and is looking for another home, hopefully less home inspection challenges this time.  


Hi Joe

    Sorry to report that XXXXXXs withdrew from the contract in Woodstock. Seller bent over backwards to remedy some pretty typical inspection issues, and indeed did so, but nothing he did was good enough. The XXXXXXXs even insisted he use providers that they proposed.

   House will be a great buy for someone else. Sorry that your work went for naught, but hopefully they will use your company in future.

Good morning Joe Petrowsky ,

Its always a shame when a buyer and seller can't agree on inspection issues. The seller will need to deal with them again with a different buyer if they are major issues. If there not the buyer may be in for a rough time on the next house!

Good morning Joe. Ego can screw up a good transaction! Enjoy your day!

As I see it Joe Petrowsky This is a "control" issue for the agent. They need to be in control of the process. If the buyers actually wanted that house there is no excuse for the deal falling apart at this stage. Shame on the agents.

Had that happen where the inspector really opened the eyes of the buyer as to what was wrong with the house and the rose colored glasses came off. It's just as well that they parted ways because that buyer will never be happy with the house no matter what the seller does.

Always a disheartening outcome to face, Joe Petrowsky ... but knowing your level of assistance and service, they'll be back when they find the right home in the future ...
