I love this post... especially when taken in the context of asking for - or receiving a list of - insepction requests.  It helps me explain to a buyer to be reasonable and it helps me explain to a seller why a buyer may not be.  Thanks, KGC!Yesterday:  "Hi - I have a home that I need help managin...
