Generally, we try to educate both buyers and sellers that the inspection report is not a "to-do" list for the sellers. We focus mainly on major mechanical or structure issues and/or safety related items. The inspection is another point of negotiation between the parties. Buyers can ask for or sellers can offer for items to be repaired or replaced or they may ask for/offer a monetary allowance in lieu of the repair. Every situation and property is different but this is how we generally approach inspection requests.
