Wished we were more agressive on asking the tenants to move items so that everything can be inspected. enjoyed the inspector showing me everything he found and valued my opinion if I found something. Very prompt with the report and enjoyable experience overall. I wish the realtor made a better plan to be able to view the whole house and have it properly inspected.
