Sarasota Home Inspections

I belong to Trulia Voices Community, where prospective buyers and sellers can ask Trulia Realtor members questions about Sarasota area real estate.

Today, a new home inspector was asking Realtors questions whether to purchase an electronic key for access to lock boxes.

Trulia is of the same ilk as Zillow as far as inaccurate listing data, but they do provide an excellent forum for consumers to evaluate agents based on their responses to questions.  On this particular thread, one of the agents said they hired the home inspector.

Realtors should never hire home inspectors for their home buyer customers, nor should they ever recommend an inspector.  If something goes wrong after the buyer closes on the property, or the inspector misses something, there's a huge potential conflict of interest.
