Good question. A Realtor or Real Estate agents goal is to sell a property for profit or commission in their case. That's the nature of the business and they do perform a lot of efforts and tactics they have learned to accomplish the transaction.
A Real Estate agent will do just about anything in their power to assure a deal gets closed. That statement right there is what makes home buyers or property buyers skeptical when a Realtor says "here, call Nelson and schedule a home inspection in the next day or so, he's the Best Home Inspector in Miami!" Albeit it possibly true, some buyers see red flags in this situation.
"Is Nelson, the Realtors go to Home Inspector going to work with his best interest for me, the Home Buyer? Or is Nelson going to overlook any possible issues that would make me back out of this contract?"
Home Inspection companies and Home Inspectors in Miami, FL, or just about anywhere else in the USA, need to be licensed and certified in order to conduct business. So they do have standards in which they must adhere to.
Like any smart consumer these days, we mostly do our research online. You will find stories of home buyers finding issues with their home within a few months of closing. It is possible to have a natural issue that was not visible even to the Home Inspector at the time of Inspection. It is also possible that yes, the homeowner encountered the friendly Blind Inspector who chose to over-look some issues and not report them so their friend the Realtor can get their commission and assuring to get the next Inspection job as well.
So what's the correct answer: Should I Use my Realtors Home Inspector? Go with your gut! Research the Home Inspector. Research the Home Inspection Business. If you trust your Realtor, then you should be ok with their Home Inspector.
