Notice anything strange about the photo to the left? Anything? The home inspector certainly did. Go ahead and click on the photo and take a moment to laugh. This inspection report came across our desks this morning and we had to chuckle. We see a lot of great real estate photos during the course of any given day, but this one wins the internet this Friday morning. We all know cats rule the internet. In all seriousness though, this is a great example of what a home inspector is tasked with doing. Their job is to inspect and report, even if the report may seem a little strange. They’re not there to fix problems or make repairs…or even rescue cats stuck in the attic. I’m sure the home inspector on this job had a few laughs as he was taking the photo, but imagine if he were faced with a rabid raccoon instead. Yikes! Home inspectors play a very important role in the process of buying a home and a great inspector is worth their weight in gold! Be sure you get a home inspection so you don’t find any surprises waiting for you when you buy your next home. We hope your attic will be free of cats, but it’s always best to know everything about the home you’re about to buy and a thorough inspection of the home will help you know just what obstacles or issues you might face in the future.
Thanks to all of the inspectors we’ve worked with that have protected our clients and always provided us with some fun stories to share! If you ever find yourself in need of recommendations for home inspectors that have proven their commitment to excellence, contact us and we’d be glad to connect you with one of the many we’ve built strong relationships with.
