    He shouldn't. But I still want to kick in the junk and rub dog shit under his door handles. Same with the inspector my realtor used. That whole industry... what a fucking scam.

    Agreed on both accounts.

    Same.

    Probably still would have bought the house, but some of the obvious shit I’ve found…

    Lesson: never take a referral for a home inspection from your own real estate agent.

    Yeah, I learned that lesson the hard way too. I'm working with a guy now who says RE agents never refer their clients to him, but they do put their friends and family who are buying houses in touch with him. No idea if that's actually true, but that does pretty much sum up my idea of a great home inspector.

    In the RE business there are so many conflicting issues in many offices. I would always suggest you do your homework and find your own sources for mortgages and home inspections. Hell, if it was possible I would tell you to shop for escrow & title services too, but the fucking listing agents always have a reason to insist the buyer use their favorite (and more expensive) companies. Could save you some money and aggravation in many cases.

    When I bought my place in SLC, I used a realtor that was a friend from college. She referred a home inspector that was very thorough.

    The one my realtor here in CO recommended was a fucking joke. I almost called the company this spring and told them I wanted a refund. My swamp cooler literally had no fucking bearings left. His report said "no issues noted." Among about 5 other similar things he missed.

    Realtors, Home Inspectors, Mortgage Companies- they all can get together to screw you.

    FKNA, Harry!

    Harry's island does need its own thread, IMO.

    Sitting in the middle of an all out bidding war on our investment right now. Fucking crazy. Not looking forward to trying to roll the gains into another property if this is how competitive it is. We are up 15% over asking so far.

    One of those guys got through to me once by calling me on my office line (which was creepy). I offered 2x current Zestimate, his counter-offer consisted of telling me my place was "a piece of shit." A real smooth operator.

    Yeah, we've gotten a bunch of texts and calls - always say "make an offer" and there's nada thus far. If you did that much work jackhole, at least have a price you want. Not like I'm going to make a realtor my agent if they're cold calling me out of nowhere.

    FUCK! I never get any of those calls.

    When we bought our place in Seattle all the crazy bidding war nonsense was going on but this one was reduced... still have no idea why 6 years later but always scared we will find out.

    Also never get those calls, for a "desirable" classic home in a suburban town with huge development recently. No reason to sell, but I'd love to counter with double Zillow. Sounds like fun.

    But then I also enjoy fucking with telemarketers.

    No, no, you're supposed to say you got inquiries and asked some ridiculous amount in return. Then you'll feel so much better swinging your penis in cyberspace.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    I get calls to sell our duplex all the time and last time a guy said "what's your number to sell"? So I doubled the Zillow estimate and replied $3M. Guy says ok, so for $3M we have a deal? I was shocked and told him to fuck off. People are crazy these days.
