If it's impossible to find an inspector, perhaps a longer home inspection period would be acceptable to the sellers, given the time of year.  But, no, not having this problem.

So far, so good. Then again, many of the vendors I use know I refer considerable business to them, so they bend over backwards to accommodate my clients. Next week could be a tough one, however, as I think many people will take off. Fortunately, I don't have to call on anyone for services next week.

Not even just at this time of year. We have like 5 home inspectors, two of whom we prefer. And they're always so slammed that sometimes we have to find out if we can get on their schedule before we even submit an offer.

I have not heard of that ever being an issue, but I guess if you were in a smaller town and didn't have a lot of quality inspectors to choose from, I could see it becoming an issue if they decided to take some time off for the holidays.

In our market we can still find home inspectors.  However, if you have limitations in your market, write it into the offer that the time frame for the home inspection is extended until your inspector can actually get in and do the work.
