Be your clients' reality check

In comments to a recent post on home inspections, local Realtor peer and Inman voice Hank Miller said, “Agents need to be the reality check, not a bobble head for the buyer. Safety and code issues along with major obvious deferred maintenance issues are usually appropriate, (but what about) typical deferred maintenance? Account for that in the offer price. An inspection isn’t intended to be a second round of price negotiation.”
