DEAR BARRY: We are buying a mobile home, and our agent says we don't need a termite inspection or a home inspection. She disclosed water damage at the bathroom floor and said this was caused by a window being left open during heavy rain. She says that a contractor can assess the damage. What do you think about this? --Sharon

DEAR SHARON: Any agent who advised clients to forgo a home inspection is either unethical or totally ignorant of the real estate profession. There is simply no excuse for giving that kind of irresponsible recommendation to a buyer. You need to look out for your own interests because your agent is apparently not doing so.
