You could buy a new home where floorplans are common.
That however does not eliminate the inspection issue.
Some buyers also don't trust another inspector hired by someone else.
I think as Kim mentioned many people seem to be nervous about posting floorplans. The county did it for a while, but then a law was posted to prevent the county from doing that and floorplans were removed.
Some of your issues might be overcome with a great agent.
In my opinion around here and with many areas of the country the floorplans aren't really all that different..in certain price ranges ...and certain ages...and certain areas. Sometimes only one builder in a neighborhood....sometimes 2 or 3....
Also talented busy agents can SAVE so much time for any home buyer by effective interviewing process. I am on property approx. 200 times a month with family tours can pretty much determine floor plan of many homes OR all ready been in that particular home with another family on tour.
