DEAR BARRY: We bought our home last year. It was a fixer-upper, but our home inspector found no major problems. After spending $75,000 on renovations, we put it on the market and had a buyer in just three days.

But the buyer’s home inspector found a foundation problem that our inspector had missed. We called our home inspector. He looked under the house again and said he saw no problem. So the buyer canceled the deal.
